Hello! I get a lot of joy from combining items that may not appear to work together at first because of opposing patterns, intricate details, etc. The Spiral stencil and Floral Imprints stamps from Hero Arts are both beautiful, but a project could look too “busy” when you combine them. I used these items with Some Lindy’s Magical Powders to make a shimmery card that is really beautiful. The YouTube video is below.

I love how this came out. If I wouldn’t have added the additional black elements, the card would have been too busy. But creating that visual triangle, and allowing space for your eyes to “rest” made the card much more pleasing. I hope you learned a few things! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
Thank you so much for your kind words!
