With Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I dusted a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped one of the images from the Woodware Little Black Dress using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut the dress only out taking care not to cut into the embossed lines - I left a little of the stand so I had something to hold.

I turned the acetate over and added Quickie Glue to the bodice. Once the glue was clear, I added CS Black Onyx Polished Silk Glitter and tapped off the excess. I added Quickie Glue to the waistband. Once the glue was clear, I added CS Sparkle Star Polished Silk Glitter.

I added Quickie Glue to the skirt. While I waited for the glue to go clear, I mixed a little Black Onyx and a little Sparkle Star Polished Silk Glitter in a separate pot. Once the glue was clear, I added Black Onyx, then my mix of glitters and then Sparkle Star.

I stamped the dress and stand onto Coconut White Card using Versafine Ink. I added a little Antique Linen Distress Crayon from Set 3 to my Craft Sheet. I picked it up with a Water Brush and painted the stand.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Deco Sayings Stamp Set using Versafine Ink. I cut out using an outer die from a Sue Wilson Striplet Die Set. I matted onto Black Card and onto a Coconut White Card black.

I trimmed off the excess acetate from the dress and glued it to the stand using Quickie Glue.
