A shaped card today.
I stamped the image from the 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 Blue Lace and Blue Cotton from the Soft Velvet Set
, Umber from the Autumn Shades Set and Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set. I cut out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Stormy Sky Distress Ink
using Cut n Dry Foam
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with Spellbinders Distressed Edges from the Card Creator series and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.
I cut the largest but one of the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One out of Coconut White Card. After the emboss stage, I left the card in the die. I inked up the Rose Background Stamp (more on order!) with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and stamped through the die covering approx half of the area (I used the stamp on an acrylic block for this). I inked up the stamp again and attempted the line the pattern up to cover the other half - it doesn't matter if it's not perfect as it's covered up by the image topper. I blotted the area with kitchen roll to remove the ink from the die and to remove any excess ink. I then inked through the die with Stormy Sky using Cut n Dry Foam.
I cut the largest of the Grand Decorative Ovals out of Blue card and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.
I tied a bow using Blue/White Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler
Thanks for stopping by.

I love the way you have used the Grand Ovals as a shaped card I have had a go at this too and it makes a fab shaped card!
You are so inspirational Julia, and you don't use loads of expensive stuff either, which makes your style more accessible to everyone, just starting with a piece of white card.
See you in a week!!!
