Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Not such a bright red in real life.

For the background, I ran the Damask Mask through the Grand Calibur with a piece of Milk Card. Leaving the mask in place, I misted with Mulberry Mist Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Magnolia Vintage Labels 7 Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies and inked through the die with Raisin Ink. I cut a Justrite Vintage Tag Die and at the emboss stage added the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder.

I stamped 3 pansies from the Justrite Pansies in Spring Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut them out using scissors. I coloured the top 2 petals in using the Mulberry Mist Ink Spray Mist. I added a little Angel Gold Sparkle from the Cosmic Shimmer Precious Sparkle Sparkle Pigments Set to the Mulberry Mist and then used that to colour in the remainder of the flowers.

I made a bow using Sue's Lattice 3d Bow Die Set and also cut a border from the same set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls in the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

Heading off down south later today ahead of the demo day at Out of the Blue, Chippng Sodbury tomorrow (bookings only - see left hand sidebar of this blog).

Thanks for stopping by.
