Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another proper card! This was was from my shows 22nd/23rd December with the lovely Tim Holtz stamps and CS Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals.

I have lots of pierced pieces of Coconut White Card from cutting frames and I used one on this card. I stamped the main image from the Tim Holtz Classics 8 Stamp Collection using Jet Black Archival. I stamped the sentiment from the Tim Holtz Classics 4 Stamp Collection, again using Jet Black Archival.

I matted onto Black Card and then onto Coconut White Card that I spritzed with Phill Martin's CS Chic Magenta Ink Spray Mist. I popped these onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I covered a Mini MDF Tag with CS White Gesso. I misted a little Chic Magenta Ink Spray Mist onto my Craft Sheet and then mixed in a little CS Warm White Chalk Paint. I used this to paint my tag. Once dry, I stamped the image from the Tim Holtz Classics 8 Stamp Collection onto my tag using Jet Black Archival. I added Clear Perfect Medium then CS Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals and heat set. I added more ink, more Crystals and heat set again.

I lit the tea lights in the EFCO Enamel Pot. I added some Clear and some Black Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals to a pie dish and popped it on the hot plate. Once moulten, I poured it into a mould made from a Wendy Vecchi embellishment. After a couple of minutes, I removed it from the mould and added it to my tag using CS Glue.

I completed my card by adding White 5mm Pearl to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
