Monday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today, I'd like to share a card made using the gorgeous new Justrite Blooming Vines Background Stamp -

I've stamped the background onto a piece of Black Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I've coloured in using Mica Powders mostly (adding water to a little powder to make a paint) - I also used Peacock Green Pixie Powder to paint the lower section of the leaves. The Mica Powders I used were Phill Martin CS Graceful Peach, Chic Moss and Chic Aubergine.

I trimmed the background and matted it onto Antique Gold Pearl Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Clear Stamp Set onto Black Card and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies and cut a mat out of Antique Gold Pearl Card using the next sized die.

I added a Vintage Black Button and a Dazzler Setting.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Black Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

The winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 12th August is .....................................
