Love & Kisses

Hi Bloggers.

Back from a busy One Day Special. Today I'm hoping to get on with some chores that I haven't been able to do for the last few weeks including sorting out the website stock that is sat in my lounge! Wish me luck!

Here's today's card -

The background is a Sue Wilson technique - I think it's called Mother of Pearl technique. I used a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I added some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer and then some CS Phill Martin Titanium Mica Powder. I mixed it together, spreading it all over the Acetate. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, added it to my background and put aside to dry.

I cut the Spellbinders Renaissance Border Two Die out of Coconut White Card 4 times and added it to the front of my background once dry, offsetting them as shown.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Stitched Lattice Frame Die Set and added it to my background using 3d Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Spring Wishes Vintage Labels Eight Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the smaller dies in the Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Tag Die Set and also cut the corresponding larger tag die out of Steel Pearl Card.
