Bags of Fun part 2

Hi Bloggers.

Another card with the same sentiment as yesterday. Not sure how well this will show up for some people so apologies in advance. I did demo this one on tv so that's why I thought I'd share it.

Ok, a messy background. I used Coconut White Card. First I spritzed all over with Cosmic Shimmer Antique Green Vintage Mister. I dried it with my heat tool and then randomly inked through small areas of the Knitted Mask with Old Paper Distress Ink. Then, with the stamp in my hand I randomly stamped the Rose Background and the Plaid Stamp both with Old Paper. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Poetry Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax all over. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Old Paper. (sorry the pic below is blurry)

I stamped the handbag from the Bags Of Style Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Golden Mint Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Rectangles and inked through the die with Old Paper. I added a 5mm White Pearl to the handbag.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Golden Mint Lustre. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die and inked through the die with Old Paper.

I made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon and cut a couple of leaves out using Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

I'll be at Percy Throwers Garden Centre today demoing - from about 11am till 4pm. Pop by if you're in the area. Don't forget to tune into Sue's shows today - if there's anything left!

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love the tone on tone with a hint of green. The background looks amazing, when creating these backgrounds I think you just have to be brave and trust that it comes together in the end.
