Another blue card today. I really like the Adirondack Aqua Dye Ink Pad.
I cut a border from white card using the Spellbinders Octagon Strips and Accents die set (I just used the backing die and not the Cut, Fold & Tuck insert). At the emboss stage, I added the Small Polka Dots Mask. I then inked through the die with the Aqua ink.
I cut the dressmakers dummy from the French Frills die set twice - once out of white card and once out of Foundations paper. I inked through the die with Aqua on both of them. I used the stand cut from white card and the bodice cut from Foundations Paper for this card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Thoughtful Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Labels 28 and inked through the die with Aqua.
Pearl Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
