Hang in there!

Hi Bloggers.

Another card made with the Creative Expressions Frilly Things Stamp Set today.

For the background, I spritzed some Coconut White card with Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Blue Vintage Mister. I dried it with my heat tool and then inked through the Eyelet Lace Mask with Fountain Blue Paris Trunk Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask around the card so that the whole area was covered. I randomly stamped the coat hanger and 'Bra-vo!' stamps over the background using the Fountain Blue Ink.

I stamped the image using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using the Fountain Blue Ink and Tropic Blue Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Fountain Blue Ink. I cut the largest of the Romantic Rectangles dies out of blue card. At the emboss stage I added the Polka Dots Mask. I inked through the die with Fountain Blue.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Fountain Blue. I cut another Ribbon Banner out of blue card and offset it behind the sentiment panel.

I made a ribbon rose out of Sky Blue American Seam Binding and another out of Blue White. I added some leftover bits of Pearl Swirls instead of leaves.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
