A new Sketch at Woodware

Edited to include product links
Hi All
I'm back again with a card for the Woodware blog, where I am once more helping out.
This week they have a sketch for you.
I always find them really useful if ever I am stuck for a card idea.
The inspiration for the stamped panel on my card actually came out of trying to help out a lady on one of my classes. She had seen a technique demonstrated at Ally Pally, bought all the equipment and then forgot what she was supposed to do. Haven't we all 'been there, done that' lol.
I had to do a bit of improvisation with the ingredients till I could track down the demonstrator,
so my background has been created using dye based inks and one of my favourite Doobadoo stencils Mask Art Bubbles.
I sponged the darker ink over white card with the stencil in place and then sponged the entire panel with a lighter ink once the stencil had been removed.
I then replaced the stencil and added some glitter glue using a piece of cut and dry felt to burnish the glue on to the paper so that it just highlights the edges of the circles.
I'm not usually a lover of glitter glue, but I must admit I have become a little bit addicted to this particular technique. It was also a great way to use up a bottle of glitter glue that came out of the bottle in long strings instead of  nice little drops.
I was loathe to throw it away, you know what us crafters are like, and now I'm so glad that I didn't.
Once that panel had been allowed to dry I then stamped over it with one of Jane Gill's fabulous floral stamps JGS333 Cow Parsley Flower Heads.
I'm going to have to come back and amend the post with some codes and links, but if I try and do that now I might fall asleep and you would get a half finished scheduled post.
I added some extra ink to the edges of the main panel along with some faux stitching, which I also added to the sentiment panel from JGS379 Everyday Verse.
I would like to thank the lovely Jean from BJCrafts for sharing her technique with me, even if I have used totally different products.
Isn't that the lovely thing about crafting, trying out an idea and putting your spin on it.
Don't forget to stop by the Woodware blog to check out what the rest of the team have been up to this week.
And here is the sketch that I have used, I forgot to add it to the original post.

Bye for now.
Happy Crafting and hugs
