Love in a different colourway

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through the Moroccan Mask with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I moved the mask along to extend the design. Next I randomly stamped one of the flourishes from the Newsprint Flourishes Stamp Set using Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I edged the background with Tattered Rose.

I stamped the Damask Heart using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Red Salmon Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 9 and inked through the die with Tattered Rose.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Damask Heart using Perfect Medium and embossed with Red Salmon Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader and inked through the die with Tattered Rose. I threaded some Blue White American Seam Binding through the slits in the die cut. I tied a bow using 3 lengths of the ribbon. I spritzed it with some water, scrunched it up and dried it. I added a Pink Dazzler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Great card, my attempts at inking the edges are a bit clumsy, obviously need more practice so that they can look like your lovely examples xx

  14. Love your cards Julia. You put so much creativity into the smallest details like the ribbon threaded die cut. Like Karen i can't get the hang of inking the edges so must practice more.
