.. I finally made some today. I had planned on getting into my craft room first thing this morning, but after looking at my daughter's bedroom I decided that she really needed my help to get it sorted out. There was so much mess on the floor that she didn't know where to start!! To be fair neither did I! However, we finished it between us, and the place looks lovely now - a bedroom fit for a princess!!!
So I got to sit down this evening and had a play. I decided that I'd have a go at the last challenge posted on Cooking It Up With Katie - the recipe this time being to use a favourite technique, and include some ribbon and brads. Now most of you know that I love stamping - so of course that's the technique I opted to use.
I stamped the image in versamark and embossed it with gold detail powder. I coloured the image using pearlescent chalks - in real-life they have a lovely shimmer, but it doesn't really show up much in the photo!! I used the beaded ovals from Spellbinders to make a matte, which I coloured with Tattered Rose Distress ink. I threaded a pale green ribbon through the holes. I thought the greeting was just right for the card, but I can't remember which company it's from. I inked the edge of the card with Bundled Sage Distress ink. Finally I added some brads - but they looked awful, so I cheated a bit and added some pastel green gems!!
Stamps: Aqualegia - borrowed from a friend; Greeting from set (don't know company)
Spellbinders: Beaded ovals
Inks: Distress - Bundled Sage, Tattered Rose
Accessories: Ribbon and gems from stash
I'd like to take this opportunity to say Hi to Julie and Sam - the latest folk to join my band of followers. Welcome!!
And that's all for this evening, it's been a long day, but I was pleased to get into my craft room - eventually!!! Please drop by again - I have more to show you tomorrow.
