Blue borders

Hi there bloggers, hope you're all enjoying this glorious sunshiny weather!?. I'm hoping it continues into next week as I've got the week off, Yey! 

My card today was made when I was playing around with ideas for last week's workshop at Out Of The Blue.
 We are concentrating on the products Julia Watts used at our demo day at the beginning of June so it encorporates a That Special Touch mask, Cosmic Shimmer water colour paints, a Creative Expressions Frame Stamp & Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste - my favourite product to play with at the moment!.

I started by using the Sea Green Sparkle Texture Paste through the Filigree mask & setting it aside to dry for a good few hours. 
I tried heating with a heat tool but it didn't really work very well. So, whilst I had a few pastes & different masks at hand I set up a bit of a production line & tried out a few colours & designs, so be prepared for a few posts featuring this technique!.

Next I stamped with faded jeans & heat embossed the sentiment & Garden Frame inner & outer frames & die cut them with Spellbinders Lacey Squares which fits this stamp perfectly.
I then painted the design with Golden Aqua, Golden Pear & Golden Malachite water colour paints from the Garden Tones set.

I then layered onto pearlescent lime green card & pale blue card & mounted into the centre of my sparkle paste background.
Around the outer edge of my card I added dots of pearlescent PVA & a double pale blue grosgrain ribbon bow in the bottom right corner finished with a turquoise resin rose in the centre.

That's it for today, I'm off to get ready for work.
 Just had a new delivery from Creative Expressions so I'm going to be drooling over the new Sue Wilson dies & new colours of Sparle paste that just arrived!.

Hope your day is a good one & thanks for all your lovely comments.
