With Love Always

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through the Floral Frame Mask using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I also inked around the edges with Scattered Straw.

I stamped the Regal Iris onto Custard Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I coloured in using Distress Markers - Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Gathered Twigs, pulling the colour out using a Tim Holtz Water Brush.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Rose Entwined Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon. I cut a couple of leaves out of Custard Card using Sue's Curled Vines Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lemon PVA around the edges.

Phill Martin has shows on Create & Craft today at 11am and 5pm. Hope you can tune in.

Don't forget that I have lots of goodies up for grabs on ebay here including the Couture Creations Lacy 8 Die!
