Hello! The month of December does not get a new release from A Colorful Life Designs, but tat means we get to play with any stencils we want. I decided to use Linky Loo today, and I made a bright and cheery birthday card.

I had just gotten some new Magicals from Lindy’s Gang. Magicals are these incredible powders that have loads of color in them, and often have shimmer. You can do lots of techniques with them, but here I decided to just tap some powder out onto a piece of Mixed Media Paper from Canson and spray it with water. I used Bells of Ireland Green from the Prairie Wildflowers collection. Use code P6GKPI07KTCTAV for 10% off at Lindy’s Gang. Once that was dry, I used a (discontinued) Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe with the Link Loo stencil. I set the background aside to dry again.
I also recently purchased the Adventure Bottled stamp set from Maker Forte (psst! It’s at a GREAT price at Only One Life Creations. I love this shop. I do not have any affiliation with them, but I have shopped several times and have always been pleased.). The inner tube reminded me of Linky Loo, so I went with that and colored it with Copics. I used: E13, E35, E000, E41, YG17, G14, G07, Y15, YR15, B05, R22, V04, BV02, BV13, BV17.
I found a great sentiment from an old Stampendous set, called Ocean Sayings, which I stamped with Paradise VersaFine Clair Ink and die cut with an old Avery Elle Banner Die. I added color around the edge with a Copic. On my base, I inked the edges with Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, then flicked on some Memories Mists in Iridescent.
I am loving these bright colors! I wouldn’t mind sitting on that beach right now. I wish you could see how shimmery the background is. The Lindy’s Magicals plus the Glitter Glaze looks so pretty when the light hits it right. Please be sure to visit A Colorful Life Designs to see the many, many stencils they have to offer.
