Curly Sue

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I would share this card from the last Woodware One Day Special that I did as the Curly Sue Stamp is currently back in stock on my website. Good news to those of you waiting for some of the other stamps that were on that show - they are back in stock, have been ordered and should be here on Monday/Tuesday. I have already added the stock to my website and those of you who requested an email when back in stock should have been notified already. Please note that the email will say that the stamps are £4.99 - this is the ex-VAT price, they are £5.99 once the VAT is added. You can find the stamps I had on that show here.

I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Woodware Curly Sue Stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder.

Using a Smoothie, I applied CS Colour Cloud in Chic Aubergine, Chic Magenta and Chic Pumpkin. I left it a couple of minutes to dry and then rubbed over with Kitchen Roll to remove the excess ink. I misted some water into my hands and clapped over the piece creating splats. I left for a minute or so and then blotted with Kitchen Roll. Using a Water Brush, I removed the colour from the leaves - simply paint with water and blot with Kitchen Roll. I added 8mm Dazzlers from the Pink and Purple Collections to the bubbles on the flowers.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Classic Adorned Rectangles. I added it to may image piece using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess. I matted onto another piece of Coconut White Card and then onto a plain paper from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad which co-ordinates with the Chic Magenta Colour Cloud I used. I popped onto a Coconut White Card blank and added 8mm White Pearls to the corners.
