Get Well Soon - Sneak Peak

Hi Bloggers.

As promised here's a card from tomorrow's shows. The time of the first show is now 8am, the other is still at 2pm. Looks like I have a double dose of Leonie - yay!

I've left this un-embellished at the moment. It may have some pearls in the corners by the time it arrives at the studios.

For the background, I placed the Patchwork Quilt Mask in the centre of a piece of Coconut White Card and inked through it with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I also inked around the outide of the mask with the Distress Ink. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Floral Flourishes Background using Victorian Velvet. I repeated the process with the Justrite Autumn Damask Background and Milled Lavender Distress Ink. Finally I stamped the 'GERANIUM' stamp from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set a few times using Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the Geranium image from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Pear Green, Pink Ultra and Enchanted Gold Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Captivating Squares (on Sue's shows on Sunday) and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Diamond Effects and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
