This is a sister card to the one in yesterday's post -
The background is some leftover from yesterday's card (please see yesterday's post for details).
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Autumn Blessings Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25. I used a couple of dies from the Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 die set to create the backer for the sentiment out of Black Card.
I stamped a couple of leaves from the same stamp set onto some Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Clear Powder. I rubbed some Cast Bronze Gilding Wax over them and then cut them out using scissors. If you buff them up with a dry wet wipe when dry the wax becomes shinier. I made a flower out of Black Crochet Ribbon.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
morning Julia, a great card you say it is a black flower it looks blueReplyDelete
on my screen did you just get a little mixed up?
No, not mixed up. Definately black as we don't do blue crochet ribbon. It looks black on my screen. Julia.Delete

Hi Julia, beautiful card, does look blue and not black, but I have found that when taking pics of black card sometimes. Am planning on trying a background like this over the weekend, hope it turns out as good as yours. BxReplyDelete

I though your colour choice was a bit unusual until I read the write up and saw it was black so I'll use my imagination. Love the overall effect of your card and the beautiful background colours. I have the label 25 die it's very pretty.
Love the card after realising it was black and not the blue that shows up. X
Stunning background Julia, such a shame the black is showing up as blue! The flower is so pretty- a fab card. Pat xReplyDelete
