Simply Fabulous

Hi Bloggers.

Once again, I'm doing this post on the other half's ipad so the photo isn't brilliant and there's only one - but at least I'm able to post a card.

I cheated a bit with this card and used the background of a demo I didn't get to finish on an earlier show.

To recap - for the background, I spritzed a piece of Coconut White card with Marigold Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mister. I then inked through the Floral Vines Mask with Wild Honey Distress Ink, moving the mask around so that the whole area was covered.

I stamped the image from the Stylish Ladies Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I also used some of the Pearl Shine from the Metallics Set to colour in the feather headress, the gloves and the dog's lead. I cut the image out using Labels 28 and inked through the die with Wild Honey.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Wild Honey.

I tied a messy bow using Blue White American Seam Binding and added the flower I had made in the earlier show using the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I also added a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
