I'm going to mix it up a bit as I still have some samples to share from the shows on 11th Jan. So, I'll alternate it a bit with the samples from 21st Jan and then at the weekend I'll start sharing samples from my next shows on 4th Feb. I'm having to keep un-blogged cards in a separate box so I can keep track!
Anyway, here's today's card - simple but quite dramatic, I think.
Couture Creations Alora Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern (doesn't match up exactly but you don't notice).
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ruby Blush Blaze Embossing Powder from the Brights Set. I cut it out using the second largest Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles but did not bother to emboss it as the edge would be hidden. I inked around the edges and towards the centre with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut a frame out of black card using the largest and the next but one of the Resplendent Rectangles die set.
Black Crochet Ribbon. I made a flower using Red Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon (see Sue's tutorial here) and added it to my bow.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
