What Defines Us

Hi Bloggers.

A dinky little card from yesterday's shows -

For the background, I stamped one of the corners from the Justrite Ornate Corners Clear Stamp Set into all 4 corners of a piece of Coconut White Card using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry, ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite What Defines Us Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Graceful Blue Embossing Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Colours by Phill Martin Collection. I cut it out using Justrite Nested Cloud & Tag Dies and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I cut the largest die in the set out of Cobalt Card.

I stamped the flower from the What Defines Us Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I coloured it in using Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Markers pulling the colours out using a Tim Holtz Water Brush.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Graceful Blue PVA around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Sneak Peek from Tuesday's shows!

Thanks for stopping by.
