Hi Everyone. Well, another weekend over and another week gone since I posted anything on here. I don't really know where the time has gone to, down a large black hole I think. I wonder if it's the time of year or the rather horrid weather which seems to have sapped my energy, and made me slow. Anyway this week I must try to be more productive.
This is a card which I made for a friend several weeks ago. I took pictures of it intending to post it on here, but the pictures were dreadful because of the bad light, and I decided to leave it. My friend loved the card, and so I very cheekily asked if I could borrow it back to retake the pictures, and so here we are.
This was made using a white square card. The background has been stamped on white card with Versamark ink using a little flower stamp from a set made by Hunkydory, and then heat embossed with WOW White EP. I then embossed it using a Crafts Too EF - Tropical Flowers which I inked up using several colours of DI, namely, Victorian Velvet, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Spiced Marmalade.
The main image was taken from a set of stamps by Creative Expressions - Belle of the Ball. I stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW Silver EP. I then coloured in the image with DI in Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves using a fine brush and a little water. Using S/B Decorative Elements - Labels 8, I die cut the image using the second largest die, and then inked the edges using DI in Seedless Preserves. I mounted this and the background on to snippets of lilac pearlescent cardstock.
Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the same set of stamps with a snippet of white card and die cut it with the smallest die from the Labels 8 set and inked the edges very slightly. I tied a bow from a length of grosgrain lilac ribbon and wrapped it round the middle of the background layer before attaching to the white base card, and then layered up the rest of the card.
I am entering this card over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop as I used snippets of white and lilac cardstock.
