Monochrome Bauble

Hi Bloggers.

Back to monochrome again today. I always come back to this colour scheme - one of my favourites.

For the background, I dusted a piece of milk card with my anti-static bag. I inked all over the Holly Mask with Perfect Medium, popped it onto my milk card and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern in the card. I sprinkled some Cosmic Shimmer Black Sparkle Embossing Powder over and heat set.

I stamped the bauble from the Creative Expressions Christmas Bauble Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I sprinkled some Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing Powder over it and heat set. I cut it out using the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament die set. I threaded an Idea-ology Bauble onto some Baker's Twine from the Primary Set, tied a bow and added it to my bauble. I looped some of the twine around the back of the card and then added the bauble to the background using 3d foam pads.

I put some 8mm and 5mm Cream Pearls in the corners.

I finished the card off with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
