Stephanie found a site called Persona Jewelry which features lovely glass, silver and enameled beads and charms....ala Pandora. I chose one called BALTIC SEASIDE for my background inspiration.
Friday was a fun-filled, but busy day for me so I decided to work the MIX25 and F4A178 into my card. I gave metallic silver paper a wash of white acrylic paint, then pressed a stencil featuring circles(dots) into the wet paint(F4A). Mr. Huey sprays were next and then I started daubing on Tim Holtz's Distress Stains. Finally I did some partial stamping with a Hero sketchy circle image in tones of gray. There is a soft silvery sheen IRL, but, of course, my meager photographic skills did not capture it.

That bg really does look like your inspiration piece!! You've inspired me to try a metallic paper...I'm sure it does look more sparkly IRL. Your simple white branch is all you need against that wonderful bg. A magical card!
OMGosh! Sallie, your panel is dreamy! I just keep staring at it!!! Love the simple branch for your white element, so elegant! This is so beautiful, I adore it. You create such classical elegant pieces - what a treat it is to see them.
