Hello! Today I have a card featuring the new Limonade Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. Normally, I am not into very citrus-y colors, but there’s something about the Limonade Blend that I really like! I guess that’s why I’ve used it twice this month already.
I blended two colors of Distress Oxides to make my background. Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber. The Distress Oxides blend together so beautifully, that they created that lovely orange shade in the middle, which made the transition of colors seamless. I splattered the background with water to get the droplets of oxidized colors. The base of my card is brown cardstock.
The Limonade Sparkle Blend has multi-sized sequins in it, and I especially love the fiery opalescent orange. I’ve used 2 of them on my card. They have such beautiful shine. I didn’t want to go too heavy on the sequins, and thought that less is more for this particular card. I’ll be back again soon with another card featuring Sparkle Blends, and tomorrow I’ll have a new creation for the latest Aurora Wings challenge. If you fall in love with a particular Sparkle Blend, you may want to grab it quickly as they are all small, limited edition batches that you can only get from White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
