Hope you're enjoying your bank holiday weekend. Here's today's card -
Hexagon Script Stamp using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Using the same method, I stamped the Rose Background using Tea Dye Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then edged with Gathered Twigs using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Elegant Ladies Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Umber and Dark Spice from the Autumn Shades Set, Sunflower from the Summer Fayre Set and Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Gathered Twigs. I cut the second smallest size of the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals 1 out of Black Card. At the emboss stage I added the Exotic Embossing Folder.
Light Brown Dazzler.
Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Easter to you. Beautiful card today, I love the colours you have used. Take care.
