Best Friends Forever.
These, Ombre Dreams papers, by Blue Fern Studio's, are so amazingly BEAUTIFUL!!!!! And fitting for almost every theme.
On my back ground I added a light coat of Gesso in various spots. I stenciled the diamond pattern using, Shimmerz - Texturez paint  (in ARTIE-CHOKED)  that comes in the
Mediums AddOn.
I also used the Texturez to stamp the vines. (the stamp came in a previous Swirlydoos Kit)
Then, using the Izink that came in previous Medium AddOns, I made some various shades of lilac mists, and I masked the doily pattern in the bottom right corner.
With the Faber Castel, Tropical Gelato set, that comes in the Medium AddOn, I colored some more on the background and around the edges. 

On this picture, you can see how much dimension is on this page.
The picture, literly lays about 1/2 an inch deeper. I used the little doilies that came
in the Main Kit, and cut them into liitle pieces to create a scalloped, lace looking edge around my cut out circle. Then I glued a lot of Mesh around my circle and some iridescent strand. To glue it down, I used Beacon Fabri-Tac. (Krissy has this in store.)

This Petaloo vine, that comes in the Main Kit, is just so gorgeous.
I added a few tiny roses (from the Swirlydoos BOUTIQUE)  Also the bigger one, which is by Kaisercraft and the white one at the top, which is by Petaloo.

 This flower.... Oh my gosh.... I treasured it for years....
came also in a previous Swirlydoos Kit.
It was time to use it I guess, and I only added a little of the Gelato in the center and I lightly tipped the petals using Iridescent medium, by Windsor&Newton.
Thinking of you
Don't you just LOVE that little Fairy??? We got a FULL PACKAGE of those
in the Main Kit..... How awesome is that?!!!!!
I love them so much! The one on this card has a thin coat of Iridescent medium.

All I can say is, that I just LOVE THIS KIT. I wished that I didn't have to go to work,
so that I could play till I used up the last piece of scrap.
