Make Art

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by selecting a paper from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad and cutting a square using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares. I stamped the text border from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Live & Make Art Stamp Set using Olive Archival. I cut a mat out of Black Card using Sue's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I cut the mask from Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set out of Bright White Card. I pressed the die cut into Clear Perfect Medium, added CS Black Mirage Embossing Powder and heat set. I added more ink, more powder and heat set again.

I cut a panel from the same patterned paper and added a Black Card mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Wildflower Art Stamp Set onto a piece of Bright White Card using Jet Black Archival.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  4. Morning Julia, gorgeous card today, I bought that set of Spellbinders when they first came out, when I saw it on your show I thought that I must get it out again and have a play, will do that later today. It is lovely to see both you and John using some of the older dies, it brings them to the front of our minds again.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    Love this card, at first I didn't realise that you'd literally used a mask, I just thought what a nice die!

  19. Great card. Love the Wendy Vecchi touches. Perfect card for anyone arty or for a drama queen! The mask coated in the Black Mirage embossing powder really pops on Phil's paper and the olive text background. Thanks.
