Simply Fabulous

Hi Bloggers.

I wish you a 'Simply Fabulous' New Year!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Blue Vintage Mister. I then inked through the Floral Vines Mask with Paris Trunk Fountain Blue Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask around so that the whole area was covered.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions You Look Scent'sational' Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in with the Fountain Blue ink and Golden Malachite Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and inked through the die with Fountain Blue. I cut another larger Floral Oval out and again inked through the die with Fountain Blue. I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Sky Blue American Seam Binding and added a Teal Dazzler.

I stamped the sentiment using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Fountain Blue.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
