Silver Bird Cages

Hello and thank you for visiting.

I was inspired by the card Erika shared yesterday to get out my pastes, sparkle mediums and masks.

My hubby has been out all day so I had a day playing and this is one of the cards I've made.

I used this Inspiration Crafts mask and their silver glitter paste.

I think cleaning up and washing the masks took nearly as long as making my cards.

Anyway I really enjoyed the day doing something I've not done for a long time.

I would like to enter my card into the challenge at Crafting from the Heart #106

Adding the sparkle of this silvery glitter paste to this fun stencil was so pretty. Your paste is in the openings just perfect! Love the silver with the other colors too. Glad you had a fun day! TFS

Oh, meant to say, when I get out the pastes, I have a discard tv dinner plastic tray, filled with a bit of dish detergent and warm water, and the stencil is dropped in it immediately (unless I have to wipe it off to reuse...then I just dip a paper towel in the warm soapy water, stencil cleans off easily. I've learned if you let the product dry on the stencil, it's very difficult to get it off). Hope this helps.

This is a lovely card and the result is worth the hassle of cleaning up afterwards which does take a time, probably why I don't use texture pastes too often.

Barb thanks for the mention, I love your card. The metallic finish is just perfect but I know what you mean about cleaning the stencils, I was in and out of the kitchen all day yesterday with mine too.

Hugs Erika. x
