You are the Best

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for the emails and comments yesterday. Glad you enjoyed the show. I have uploaded photos of the samples to my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page here.

I'm having another clearout. Please click on the ebay link in the menu above to go and have a look.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by stamping one of the little flower stamps from the Justrite Floral Fan Elements Stamp Set over a piece of Coconut White Card using Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Ink and then added some Sky Blush Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles and put aside to dry.

I cut the largest die from Sue's Granada Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the largest 2 dies from the same die set out of Perwinkle Card. I glued the 2 die cuts together using CS Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the floral fan piece from the Justrite Floral Fan Elements Stamp Set 5 times using Jet Black Archival. I added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder but did not heat set until I added the sentiments (from the same stamp set).

I coloured in using Marine Aqua and Apple Green Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Mica Spray Set.

I assembled the fan as shown securing with a Black Brad and then glueing together with CS Dries Clear Glue.

I tied a bow using Blue/White Striped Grosgrain and added a Black Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
