Eat Sleep Salsa

Hi Bloggers.

Here's todays card -

For the background, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped Phill Martin's Vintage Sheet Music Background onto Coconut White Card using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I repeated the process with Phill Martin's Vintage Script Background using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Seedless Preserves and rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the embossed surface. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Salsa Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 8 and inked through the die with Seedless Preserves. I cut a Spellbinders Locking Loops Die out of Rich Plum Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two Dies and inked through the die with Seedless Preserves. I cut a Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader Die out of Rich Plum Card.

I tied a bow using Sheer Iridescent Ribbon, added some Black Tulle, a Black Crystal Sparkler and a couple of Black Pearl Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
