Dreamy May Arts

I don't know about you, but, I love May Arts Ribbon!  There's something for every taste and every budget, and, it's so much fun just looking at all the gorgeous colors.  It's truly a feast for the eyes!  I love it when Stampendous and May Arts hop!!

Today is Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and I'm using a fun stencil called Swirly Heart.  It's perfect for creating a Valentine for that someone special.

Here's a close-up of the ribbon that really shows the sparkly goodness:

Here's what I used for this card:

Richeson's Acrylics in Scarlet, Crimson Red, Titanium White and Mars Black
Pink Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Echo Park® "Yours Truly" Patterned Paper
Bo Bunny® "Garden Girl - Wild Flowers" Patterned Paper
Me & My Big Ideas® Pink Multi Pack Rhinestones
Studio 18® Rhinestones Strass Green
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesive

Here's what I did to create this card:

Trim papers to desired size.
Tape down paper and stencil in preparation of pasting.
Mix white paste with paints until you get the desired color, I went with a nice plum.
Spread on paste and once applied, remove stencil (put in water right away), and set aside to dry.
Once partially dry, apply Metallic FX with a Q-Tip and then heat with a heat tool to complete drying.
Using the same Q-Tip, smudge some of the Metallic FX in various spots around the paper.
Adhere patterned papers.
Create bow with 2 ribbons and adhere to card.
Adhere patterned papers to card base.
Complete card by adding rhinestones as shown.
