Let Them Eat Cake

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm back to purple again and I'm sharing this card with you -

The image is from Sugar Nellie and it's called 'Let Them Eat Cake'. I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured using Promarkers. I added some Sakura Stardust Clear Star to the wings to make them sparkle. I cut the image out using an oval nestie and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I inked through That Special Touch Small Polka Dots Mask with Dusty Concord Distress Ink onto white card and then went around the edges with the same ink.

I cut a piece of Whitewash Colorcore with a lilac core and embossed it using the That Special Touch Polka Dots Mask. I sanded it to make the polka dots stand out more. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord.

I matted the small polka dots background onto some purple card and then ran a strip of Hi-Tack Tape across the card and ruffled some Violet Vintage Ribbon along it leaving it un-ruffled where the Whitewash backing paper was to go.

I added the Whitewash backing paper to the card and mounted the image on top using foam pads.

I tied a messy bow using 2 lengths of Violet Vintage Ribbon and added it to my ruffled border using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I tied some Baker's Twine through a Lavender Button and glued it to my bow.

I added a brad to each of the corners and then added my design to a Craftwork Cards 6" x 6" card.
