I got a bit sidetracked this week so now I have a dozen cards to post for challenges so will start off tonight with three.
My first one is using a Hero Art background stamp that I have used before.
I have stamped then gold embossed onto vellum. I painted the
flowers with Zigs only using two colours for the flowers and the same for the leaves
using the lighter colour to blend the darker in without using water.
I then decided to layer the vellum on a piece of gold mirror card, die cut
with a stitched rectangle. I felt it showed the depth of the stamped
image up better.
Aren't the flowers beautiful. I finished them off with a few
little clear gems to give the illusion of water drops.
After I attached the vellum across the top with vellum tape which is meant to be
less visible, all I could see was the tape mark so I decided to attach the
die cut 'celebrate' up the top to cover it up.
this next card I have used Hero Art again, this time a
geometric background stamp. I stamped and white embossed
then blended some blue and green Distress inks.
After blending the colours I sprayed with a shimmer mist but it doesn't
show up as well here.
I finished off with a die cut 'Thanks' in silver mirror cardstock
and a few scattered enamel dots.
My final card has only a wee bit of stamping on it.
I have used this Candy Strip die from Gina Maria Designs. another of her
fantastic bargains at $10.00. I die cut three times, black, orange
Added a piece of double sided sheet to the front of the card, then attached
the black from and start adding the colours. After I had put it together
and looked at my cut out feet they sort of disappeared with the background.
So I cut out a wonky stitched square in green for contrast.
Stamped the sentiment and then just used one pair of feet, adding
Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer and a couple of sparkly
enamel dots and it was finished.
