Thanks to everyone who watched the shows yesterday and to those of you who emailed in. As usual, not enough time to read them all out. I really enjoyed all the shows but the ones with Loen were an absolute hoot - she's a nutter! I'm still giggling as I type this and I have Gonna Make You a Star and Sugar Baby Love going through my head! I am scheduled to do some more shows on Tuesday at 8am, 1pm and 6pm.
I'm off to Ally Pally today to set up for the weekend. I'll be demonstrating on the Creative Expressions Stand Saturday and Sunday along with Leonie, Sam, Hels (Saturday only) and Christine (Sunday only). I'm also set to do a demo in the demo room both days - yikes! Sue will be there on her own RubberNecker stand as usual.
Here's a very simple masculine card made with Black Metal. (Please note that I have 4 x 4 in my shop. This card was made with a 5 1/4 x 5 3/4 sheet.)
I ran the black metal sheet through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Industrial M-Bossabilities Folder. I sanded it to reveal the Aluminium Core.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B. I edged with a little Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I used the 2 sizes either side of Matting Basics A to cut a frame out of black card.
I pressed a Creative Expressions Metal Decorative Corner into a Perfect Medium Ink Pad and sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder and heat set.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
