The sky's the limit!

Hi Bloggers.

Hopefully this isn't too pale for you to see!

This card is made from Milk Card only with colour from Pool Adirondack Dye Ink.

The background was embossed through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Spellbinders Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Pool Ink using a Smoothie.

I cut the large die from the Spellbinders Victorian Medallion One Die Set and inked through the die with Pool Ink. I inked a piece of card with Pool Ink and then cut the middle size die from the Spellbinders Floral Burst Cut, Fold & Tuck Die Set. I folded & tucked, added an 8mm Cream Pearl to the centre and popped it in the centre of the Medallion die cut.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Tatty's Text using Watering Can Archival - I used the 2nd generation. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Victorian Tags Die Set, inking through the die with Pool Ink. I cut the corresponding fancy die from the set as a mat, again inking through the die with Pool Ink.

I cut a Spellbinders Moroccan Accent and made a flower out of Cream Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more 8mm Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
