Craft Barn DT card

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’re all well and had a good day today. It’s the colour theme day on the Craft Barn blog and this time it’s all about yellow. I’m a day late with my post I’ve just realised, so apologies to the CB blog for that! Hope you can pop over and see the gorgeous creations from my DT friends.

I’ve made a tag this time which I sponged with mustard seed and vintage photo distress ink . Over this I stamped one of the flowers from the Abstract set by Personal Impressions several times around the left side with vintage sepia versafine ink and I  added some rock candy, fruit punch  and yellow stickles to the stamping for a bit of sparkle. The gorgeous dragonfly from PaperArtsy Top and Tail 2 was stamped with Stazon timber brown onto acetate and then cut out and glittered with stickles on the underside. To finish off I placed a row of yellow gems along the bottom edge and doodled some dots with a copic clear spica glitter pen. I know yellow isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I love it and it makes me think of spring.

It’s the Craft Barn Spring Mini Fest on Saturday which I’m very much looking forward to and I’ll be demonstrating distress ink water colouring and some very cute stamps :). If you’re in the area and have a chance to pop in it’ll be lovely to say hello. TFL.

Love the colouring as usual Chris, you've made the yellow very warm. Fab butterfly, my attempts to stamp on acetate usually end in disaster!
Looking forward to Saturday.
