Back to burgundy & black today -
I'll start with the main image for a change today. All the stamps used are from the Justrite True Friends Vintage Labels Four Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. First I stamped the sentiment using Jet Black Archival and added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I did not heat set just yet but stamped the Floral Frame around it, added powder and heat set the lot. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Scarlet Flame from the Autumn Shades Set
, Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set
and Sunflower from the Summer Fayre Set. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies.
I cut a Spellbinders Persian Motif out of Black Card, cut it in half and popped it at the back of the image panel.
For the background, I stamped the corner stamp in each corner of some Burgundy Card and embossed with Clear powder. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Hyper Magical Embossing Folder.
I tied a bow using Burgundy/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
and added a Black Dazzler
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black
around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
What a very striking card to start the week - the colour combo is always a good one.
Love the sentiment and frame.

Good morning Julia,ReplyDelete
I really like the justrite centre stamp you have used along with the grograin and dazzler. May treat myself to this stamp as it does say an awful lot that sometimes words spoken can't. I like the concept of your card but i think i might put a white background and put the burgandy as a mat showing behind. Thank you for giving us inspiration each day to try something different.
Love and crafty hugs
A very striking card, love the burgundy and black together. Hope you have a stressfree move,

Beautiful card Julia, lovely colours and stamp.ReplyDelete
What a stunning card this is, love the red and black such a bold colour scheme I find its usually used mainly for valentines day cards so nice to see it used for other card occasions.
Love the stamps you have used and so beautifully coloured in with the inks.
The Persian motifs are so pretty behind. The corners are so ornate. love also the way you've embossed the background with a lovely embossing folder. The sentiment is lovely too.
Best wishes from Katie-Louise x
