Hello my friends. I'd actually made this topper about a month ago with the free Lavinia stamps that came with a craft magazine. I don't know why it took me so long to finish it off but this happens sometimes, at least to me.
Anyway less fuff .... So I started with the background. I masked off a moon and then worked with several gelatos, water and my fingers as applicators and blending tools. I love working with these crayons.
Then came the stamping. All the images are freebies bar the sentiment. I used black archival for all the stamps and alternated first and second generation ink for the repeat patterns.
Then i added white opal liquid pearls and added glitter to it.
In each corner is a ruby red liquid pearl. I matted and layered and was ready to put on base card. however it looked quite bare. So i got out distress inks to match the gelatos and repeat stamped the stars kind of diagonally.
In the opposite corner i repeat stamped the flower and the dots. This way i felt the card looked better but i leave the verdict up to you.
As always I hope you like what I made, Theresa xx
