Let's Dance

Hi Bloggers.

I've popped a few more card sample packs onto ebay - didn't have time to do many, sorry. This time I'm raising funds for Help for Heroes. You'll find them by clicking on the ebay link in the top menu of this blog.

The last set of sample packs raised £22.63 for The Teenage Cancer Trust. Many thanks to those of you who supported the auctions.

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 Milk Card using Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink. I then stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set a few times over the background, again using Raisin Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Raisin Ink. I rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the surface and put aside to dry for a few minutes. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Paso Doble Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lava Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Raisin Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Locking Loops die out of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lava Black Aurora. I cut it out using another A2 Curved Matting Basics A Die and inked through the die with Raisin Ink.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Curled Vines Die Set and added a White Satin Flower.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
