Hi everyone. This card uses a Creative Expressions set of stamps which hasn't seen the light of day for a very long time and features some lovely handbags with frames and sentiments. I also used a stencil from a set by Craft Sensations which I bought from The Range, and this particular set is Art Deco, with five designs and this is one of them.
I started with a piece of cream card and using a brush I added the design very softly using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I then stamped the handbag onto another piece of cream card using Versafine Majestic Blue ink and heat embossed it using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and fussy cut it out. I finished the bag with a very watery soft wash of Adirondack Sunshine Yellow ink onto the piece across the front of the bag and also on the stone in the centre of the ornate badge, and then added some Glossy Accents over this central stone.
To finish it I also stamped the sentiment and two little flowers from a set of florals which came with a magazine sometime last year I think, using the same blue ink and with a little wash of the yellow ink to the petals, and also fussy cut them out, and added theme to the stencilled layer after I had stamped the sentiment.
I finished by adding the handbag using some silicone gel to give it a bit of dimension.
Thank you for visiting here today and I hope you will visit again soon.
