Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised here's a sneak peek from tomorrow's shows on Create & Craft. I have some new floral stamp sets from Taylored Expressions on the shows.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by spritzing with Purple Orchid Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. I popped a little Violet Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet and picked some up with a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used this to 'ink' through one of the designs in the Ornate Elements Mask in each corner. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Paradise Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I stamped the image from the Taylored Expressions Lavender Bouquet Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Arctic Blue and Evergreen Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mists, Violet and Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints and a little Antique Linen Distress Ink. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Devine Eleoquence Die Set and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with another die from the Spellbinders A2 Devine Eleoquence Die Set and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I made some flowers from Sue's Quilled Flowers Die Set and cut some leaves using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set.


I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
