AquaBlend shavings


I was inspired by this tutorial by Nicky Hayden to try making tiny shavings of AquaBlend pencils and then spritz with water to make the color appear in tiny confetti like bursts. I did get the idea to put a stencil on top to make a pattern of bursts and I was very excited when I saw the results. I had big trouble making it into a card because the background turned out so pretty. In the end I just silver embossed a sentiment and a made a vellum leaf to attach on top to let some of the color shine through it. 

Colors of AquaBlend pencils used: Papaya, Iris and Rosé

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards and coloring. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
