Purple Demo Card

Hi Bloggers.

This card was a demo from last Saturday.

For the background, I used a piece of Milk Card and randomly stamped (with the stamp in my hand) the Hexagon Script Stamp using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I repeated the process with the Rose Background Stamp using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I made sure it was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. You can't really see the embossed design but it does add some texture. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Elegant Ladies Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing powder. I coloured her in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Clover and Summer Haze from the Soft Velvet Set, Umber from the Autumn Shades Set and Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set. I cut her out using the smallest of the Grand Decorative Ovals One Dies and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut the second smallest Grand Decorative Circles One out of Blackcurrant Pearlescent card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Cream Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Lavender Dazzler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

    The way you use the background stamps is great and i have them on my wish list, with colour change and sentiments to fit the mood i would never need to purchase backing papers again would be creating my own.
