Hi there everybody. Another anniversary card today, not many more on my list though now we are getting into September, and I decided to use this new stamp set acquired recently from Art Journey Stamps called, unsurprisingly, Dance, and as the tango is considered to be quite a passionate dance, especially the Argentinian variety, I thought this image would be something just a bit different for an anniversary.
I stamped the image using Versafine Ink in Deep Lagoon and as it is a silhouette and quite a large stamp I used my Misti so that I could ink it several times. I noticed that inking it more heavily the bit of script across the bodies of the dancers got filled in rather which is shame but I did want a good heavy coverage. I then heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
I then decided to make a heart pattern in the background which I did with a heart stencil made from a piece of acetate using a heart die, and which I have kept and used many times. I inked blended with Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks using the Cracked Pistachio around the edges. I did four to form a sort of flower in the background.
I finished with the sentiment stamped and embossed with the Deep Lagoon Ink and then Clear Gloss EP, and I used the Clear Gloss on the clock faces too using the Versamark Pen.
Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope to see you again soon.
