Postcard

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of paper from the Heartfelt Creations Antiquity 12 x 12 Paper Pad. I covered it with Double-Sided Adhesive and then added Glass Micro Beads. I added an Art Deco Metal Corner to 2 of the corners and wrapped some Cream Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Postcard Stamp using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I coloured in using Pink Mallow Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Summer Shades Mica Spray Set and Apple Green from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Mica Spray Set.

I made a flower. I painted a piece of card with the Pink Mallow Mica Spray and cut the smallest flower die from the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set 3 times. I cut the largest flower die out of felt from the Vintage Felt Pack. I used the felt die cut and one of the painted die cuts to mak ea flower in the usual way. I cut 2 flowers out of another paper from the Antiquity pad using the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die Set. I stacked the layers of the flowers up as shown and added them to the postcard image.

I tied a bow out of Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Crystal Sparkler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia

  16. My favourite stamp from your recent shows Julia - love what you have done with it - so pretty. Must add to my collection soon. Just had a delivery from the postman of my very beautiful Sue Wilson card I won in the comment game. Nearly missed out by not being around at the right time but am so pleased to have it and it will be treasured. The sentiment is Hello My Friend and although I can think of several friends who would love me to send it to them - they are not having it! X
