A card from Monday's shows today -
I used Milk Card for this one and some Baby Blue Pearlescent Card that I had leftover from when I had a shop. For the background, I misted through the Fretwork Mask with Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Blue Vintage Mister. I dried it with my heat tool (I'm impatient!). Next, I randomly stamped the Daisy Swirl Stamp
using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I cut a Spellbinders Butterfly Corner out of Pearlescent Card.
I made a scrunched flower using the middle size curvy die from the Spellbinders Petite Labels 1 Die D-Lite adding a little Tumbled Glass to the tips of the petals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader and inked through the die with Tumbled Glass.
I cut the largest die from the Spellbinders Ornate Squares die set. At the emboss stage, I added the Funky Mask.
I cut a couple of butterflies from the Butterfly Corners Set (they're actually ribbon threaders) and inked through the die with Tumbled Glass. I shaped the wings with my fingers and added some Cream 3mm Pearls
to the bodies.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
Good morning Julia,ReplyDelete
This card is both beautiful and sophisticated. I love the color combination. A wonderful way to start the day, thanks,
Pretty card Julia, those scrunched flowers are so effective.ReplyDelete
Good morning Julia and everyone. Saw you demo the scrunchy flower and couldn't believe how a wet screwed up bit of card could look so good!ReplyDelete
Morning Julia, what a lovely card, the pearlescent blue is pretty, so often the way finding a gem amongst the leftovers! I missed you showing the scrunchy flower :-( Pretty please perhaps you will do a tutorial sometime? Maybe also on the other spellbinders label flower you mentioned and which I also missed boo hoo again!ReplyDelete
Hope your house move is going smoothly. Hugs Annie
