A little more honesty

Good afternoon, peeps!  Actually, it's good crafternoon as Dean always says on C & C because that's what I'm doing today - pretty much like most days, come to think of it!

Anyhoo, here's one I made earlier - last week in fact:

This one features Honesty of a different kind, the flowers that were in the background of yesterday's card rather than Honesty, the lady being the main feature.  The background of the central diamond is created with H2Os painted over streaks of emulsion paint.  As you can see, when it's dry the emulsion paint acts as a resist and I really like the effect it produces.  After stamping the Honesty flowers with Dove Grey Stazon, I painted them, not in their entirety but leaving a little of the background showing through, with Pebeo white, heavy body acrylic paint.  The corners of the diamond are stamped with one of the stamps from wor Sheena's Ageing Beautifully Stamp Set and embossed with gold detail EP.  The addition of two Spellbinder squares cut in half from some gold card, a chocolate boxy bow and we're good to go.

I do hope you'll be tuned in to Create and Craft TV on Thursday 22nd to see the lovely Sheena demonstrating these wonderful new 'A Little Bit Magical' stamps.  I'll let you know the times as soon as I know them.

Thank you for looking at today's sneaky peek and I'll let you see another of the designs tomorrow.
