Here's today's card -
Belle of the Ball Stamp Set in each corner of a piece of Milk Card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I 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. I rubbed some Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax all over. I love the way the wax clings to the embossed Archival Ink. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
Black Crochet Ribbon around the background and glued a strip from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad on top. I added 3 x 8mm Cream Pearls as shown.
Soft Velvet Set. I stamped the image again onto some Teresa Collins Paper and cut out the 2 side sections of the dress and the waistband. I glued these in place on the original image using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
I cut a Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangle and inked through the die and around the edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.
Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl Pearlescent PVA around the edges.
Sue lauches the first ever Pick of the Weekend today at 8am on Create & Craft. Lots of Christmas Goodies to be had. You can see the full list of show times on the right-hand side of her blog. Talking of her blog, another blog has knocked her off the No. 1 spot on Crafty Blogs - be sure to visit her blog regularly so that she can perhaps move back to the No.1 spot.
Thanks for stopping by.
