I have shows on Create & Craft today at 10am and 2pm - looks like they're with Joanne and Martyn respectively. Hope you can join me.
As promised, here's a card from the Belle of the Ball Stamp Set -
The background is from the lovely Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad specially made for Creative Expressions. To make it a little more interesting, I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Large Hepburn Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then rubbed some Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax all over. When the Gilding Wax was dry, I inked around the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the image from the Belle of the Ball Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks - Cosmic Skin from the Skin Tones Set and Umber from the Autumn Shades Set. I also added a little Dark Bronze Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
Cream Crochet Ribbon following Sue's Tutorial and cut a couple of leaves out of Soft Gold Card using Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.
8mm Cream Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.
See you later. Thanks for stopping by.
