I hope your weekend has got off to a good start.
We have had a good old thunder storm this evening with masses and masses of rain. It was coming down so fast it was bouncing off the greenhouse and creating what looked like a halo around it. A lovely sight to see.
Back in the olden days when we went out whenever we wanted, and stayed as long as we wanted because we felt comfortable, Mr Heart and I spent some time in The Range. I had raided the craft section, as always, and then as Mr Heart hadn't retired at that point, I suggested we have a quick look at the wallpaper for some ideas ready for starting our decorating.
I always take swatches home and stick them on the wall to see if I still like them further down the line.
Whilst choosing a few swatches I also picked a few metallic ones and a fun glitter swatch too .. .. .. not for sticking on my walls but for using on my cards.
The blue glitter paper on my card below was the sample I took and I have added embossing paste through a stencil to create the stars.
It doesn't smell of wallpaper and didn't shed glitter everywhere. I am very tempted to go back and buy a roll of it. I can't imagine it on any of the walls in my home but as stash in my craft pod .. .. yes indeedy!! I wonder what other colours they do it in? LOL!!! I could make zillions of cards with a roll of wallpaper LOL!!
I haven't used the metallic samples yet .. .. but they will make an appearance at some point.
So here is my card:
