ESAD March 2019 Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Welcome to ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop where we are the 
'Extra Special Australiasian Demonstators'  from Australia and New Zealand
who create beautiful samples to inspire you <3

This month seen as it is the last month of Sale-A-Bration we want to show you
when you purchase products from the Occasions catalogue or Annual catalogue,
over $90/$180 you can earn some FREE Sale-A-Brations (SAB) products.
The more you spend the more you earn...Different products - Different levels

I have used 2 products from the Occasions catalogue to create my project today
Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle, Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Bundle

BUT have purchased the combination of several products
so I could earn myself 3 different SAB products.
Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets

You may have started the Hop with me -  Sharon Dalton -
or just joined me from Jackie Aitken's AMAZING creation...
She is one talented lady who is 2019 Artisans of the Year.

Firstly I started with a piece of Watercolour paper
(Sorry forgot to photograph the process and technique)
I used 3 different inks on a piece of acetate and sprayed with water
and layed my card in the pool of colour to create my background.
Then as it was drying I wet my hands and sprinkled droplets of water
over the entire background to create the distinct pattern.
Such a cool technique!!!

Then I started adding spots from Beauty Abounds with Poppy Parade 
(stamped off, 2nd generation ink) over the background...Then added Pumpkin Pie spots as well...

Next I added the floral image to the side of the front panel with Poppy Parade Ink
and then a sentiment from Beauty Abounds Stamp Set

Next was to create a focal point on the inside of the card to add some interest

Next I added some of the SAB products to the outside of the card...
Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets for the butterflies.
Botancial Butterfly Designer Series Paper as a fussy cut butterfly
Butterfly Elements as a wood butterfly.
See how the foil just shimmers different colours under different light.

Using products such as the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
from the Annual catalogue you can also a
dd to your total to reach your $90 SAB rewards.
These add another eye catching element to your card.

Finally you get the see the finished product - Inside out first LOL

Up next is Maree McIntosh a fellow Aussie Demo who I am sure has created something
rather special too...So many beautiful products to choose from.
