Friends are like

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed through the Flower Mask with Cosmic Shimmer Tarnished Gold Vintage Mister on to some Milk Card. Then I randomly stamped a rose from the Creative Expressions If the Shoe Fits ... Stamp Set using Sepia Paris Trunk Dye Ink. I made sure that the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Intrinsic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern - here I have used ribbon to hide the join. I inked around the edges with Yellow Damasque Paris Trunk Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam before adding the ribbon.

I stamped the bra and knickers from the Creative Expressions Frilly Things Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Sepia Ink and Enchanted Gold Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut them out with scissors and went around the edges with a black marker pen to hide any white bits.

I stamped the sentiment from the Frilly Things Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and inked through the die with Yellow Damasque.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of London Tan American Seam Binding and added a Light Brown Dazzler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
