My Wish For You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my anti-static bag and popped it on top of my tan mat which was on my base plate. I inked all over the Squared Mask with Perfect Medium and placed it inked side down on top of the card. I added the pink embossing plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern. I added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Powder and heat set. I inked all over with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I used a piece of kitchen roll to remove any distress ink that may have been sitting on the embossed design.

 I stamped the image from the Hearfelt Creations Dahlia Bouquet Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Splendid Circles and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. The sentiment is from the centre of one of the images from the Heartfelt Creations Floral Keys & Locket Stamp Set, stamped with Jet Black Archival, embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and cut out using the Heartfelt Creations Burnished Key Die.

I made a flower from 6 cuts from the 2nd smallest of the Spellbinders Labels 24 dies and added a little Dusty Concord to the edges. I cut a couple of leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Pearl PVA in Crystal around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  7. Morning Julia, Magnificent !! I can't believe that the background started life as a piece of coconut white card, and emerged as this gorgeous lilac and silver 'creation'. A fabulous technique, one that I will be trying, and Thank You for the 'sandwich' used.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    love the background on this card. Also love the stamp. Must have another try at this kind of background. as I tried this technique with the snowflake mask, but failed to get a crisp image as I was trying to emboss it with detail white powder,
