I I visited a Spoon full of Sugar blog the other day and fell in love with Paola's beautiful card. I was so inspired that I wanted to have a go at one myself.
Here is my card.
I am going to continue to add to this gift set with a candle and matching tin. Will post them, when they are completed.
Chalk and Wet Wipe background.
This is a very quick and simple technique to do. All you need is coloured chalks of your choice, cotton buds or something to out the chalk on to the wet wipe, a couple wet wipes and card/paper of your choice.
First screw your wet wipe up in to a ball. Then left some colour from the colour of your choice and place onto the wet wipe. Then either wipe across the paper or working in circular motion to place the colour on. Keep adding colour to the wet wipe. You may need to start to use a new wet wipe as they do dry up quickly.
You can add different colours to your background as well. Another thing you can add for a bit of sparkle is mica. But you would have to set this with hair spray afterwards.
