No greater feeling

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demonstrating at the Stables Card Emporium in Habrough today. If you're in the area, please stop by.

Here's today's 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 Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink. I repeated the process with Phill Martin's Vintage Script Background using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Chipped Sapphire. I 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 added Cosmic Shimmer Sky Blush Twinkles around the edges and out aside to dry.

I stamped the Senorita Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Steel Blue Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire. I cut a Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader Die out of Navy Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Steel Blue Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire.

I tied a bow using Sheer Iridescent Ribbon, added some Silver Tulle and a Black Crystal Sparkler.

I made some flowers out of the same ribbon and cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Summer Blue Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
