I hope you all have a lovely Halloween.
Well this week I have decided to do some crafting for me!!!! I have spent the last month doing work for DT commitments and samples for some British Companies so this week I have decided to play with my stamps.
This is what I have created this morning and couldn't wait to share it with you all!
For my base card I have taken 2 A4 black pieces of card and cut it down to 23 cms. At 5 cms I have scored both pieces and joined together but I added my ribbon before joining them using double sided tape, I then added the knots and the buttons. The base layer which is white pearlescent card is cut out using Spellbinder Die Labels 23, this is a fairly new die and I love it and use it nearly all the time! I have used WOW embossing glitters in Silver Bells around the edge of the card.
I then took a piece of parchment and drew around a smaller die using my embossing tool to give an embossed edge. I have stamped using Versamark and WOW powder's in Black Glint and then heated this dry. The sentiment I stamped using white VersaColour ink pad and embossed the wording. I turned my parchment over and using my chalks I have chalked in blues, greens and a combination of peach and sand. I have embossed certain area of this stamp using my embossing tool. The stamps are from Sheena Douglass' A little bit Sketchy Range called Milestones and Moments and this is one of my favourites!!!!! Around the edge of the embossed area I have taken a 2 pin parchment tool and pricked all around the shape then using my scissors cut this out to give a fluted edge. You can't see it very well on the white pearlescent background card but it looks beautiful. I then layered this onto the white card using brads from my stash and mounted this onto the black card.
