Before I share today's card, I'd just like to say thank you to everyone who has clicked 'like' on my Julia Watts Crafts page. A few people of sent me friend requests - my personal facebook is only for friends and family - sorry. All my news goes on my Julia Watts Crafts page and here on the blog.
Here's today's card -
This is one of the rare occasions when I used a backing paper. It's from the Heartfelt Creations Burst of Splendour Paper Pad which I had been given. It seemed rude not to use it even though the pad was not included in the show.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Natures Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival in the top left hand corner. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.
I stamped the Blooming Dahlia using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using scissors and coloured using Milled Lavender Distress Marker. There's only one layer on this card, you could decoupage this flower into lots of layers. I stamped some leaves from the Bold Leaf stamp set using Crushed Olive Distress Marker. I cut them out with the Classic Leaf Die Set.
Just to show how well other dies work with set, I cut aHeartfelt Creations Decorative Lattice Swirl out of Coconut White Card.
I assembled tha card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Plum around the edges.
I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peak from Friday's shows - mmm what to share first?
Thanks for stopping by.
