Today I have shows on Create & Craft at 8am, 10am, 2pm and 7pm. I shall be driving to the studios when this post goes live and won't be back home again till about 9.30pm. Long Day! Looks like I have Martyn at 8am, Andy at 10am, Lee at 2pm and Paul at 7pm.
Here's today's card -
For the background. I ran some blue card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. Watch out for these as they may not be shown on the TV but they are on the show. They're from the brand new Elegance Collection. I have ordered some for my Amazon Store but as yet they haven't arrived. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax all over.
I stamped the Pure Elegance Single Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using some Matt Drawing Inks - Blue Cotton (Soft Velver Set), Umber (Autumn Shades Set), Cosmic Tone (Skin Tones Set) and Tropic Blue Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set.
I placed the largest of the Nobel Rectangles over the image and then a Gold Ovals One within it (I secured it with low tack tape). I cut and embossed as normal then removed the oval die and inked through the Nobel Tectangle with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
Delightful Lily Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Superellipse die and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.
White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Hope you can join me today - lots of emails please!
Thanks for stopping by.
