Best of Luck

Hi Bloggers.

I'm off to Ally Pally this afternoon. Do come and say Hi if you're visiting over the weekend.

Today's card is another demo card from last month.

For the background, I laid the Music Border Mask across some Coconut White Card and inked through it with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I moved the border down the card and inked through twice more. I then stamped the Elemental Swirl along the top and the bottom using Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the Classic Rose Stem using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in with Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Mallow (Summer Fayre) and Soft Moss (Garden Twist). I cut out using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles. I cut a larger Timeless Rectangles out of Black card.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the rose stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with another of the Timeless Rectangles.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Morning Julia, loving your background, using the mask and stamp. I have these dies and they are absolutely stunning. Not sure if the rose is appropriate for the good luck or the good luck with the rose, I no they come together. However, I am loving the rose stamp, wish my coloring in was as so neat. Sadly, I'm unable to go to AP this time, but I'm sure all that do will have a fab time. Have a great weekend, crafty hugs Debbie R xx

  21. A lovely card Julia, enjoy your weekend.

  22. Hi Julia, Lovely card again today. I had a disappointment yesterday when I found out the multibuy stamps, chicken wire, etc that I ordered had been lost in the post and C & C have no more stock. I have been dying to try out your wonderful background stamp in hand technique. Oh well, I guess I will just have to wait a little longer to try it. Have fun at AP. SueL
