As I expected, yesterday's card didn't go down too well. I still like the card myself. Today's card is one I have prepped for a demo in the 7pm show. Incidentally, I have also prepped a demo using the out of the box technique featured in Monday's post for the same show.
I started with the background and a piece of Milk Card. I love these types of backgrounds as they're quick and easy, fun and inexpensive (once you have the stamps, of course!). I used the Justrite Harlequin Script Background stamp (I didn't put it on a block) and inked a bit of it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then randomly stamped repeating until I was happy. Next I inked up the Bubblewrap stamp in the same way using Pumice Stone Distress Ink and stamped filling in some of the gaps. The I added some splats of Vintage Photo Distress Stain. I distressed the edges of the piece using my scissors and then inked all around with Pumice Stone using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the Harlequin background onto a separate piece of Milk Card using Vintage Photo. I dried it with my heat tool and then cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six. I inked through the die with Vintage Photo.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Dream Cars Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Marigold from the Autumn Shades Set and Black Night from the Summer Fayre Set.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using the Coffee Archival and embossed with clear powder. I distressed the edges of the panel with my scissors and edged with Pumice Stone.
I tied a Key Charm and a Tassel to some Black & White Baker's Twine and added it to the card using Cosmic Shimmer Glue (I didn't notice the tassel had gathered at the top of the key for the photo).
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre around the edges.
Hope you can join me today at 11am with Debbie and 7pm with Martyn.
Thanks for stopping by.
