..... Morning all - I've a card for this week' Do You Stack Up? - DYSU101 challenge - where we have to include Gold and Silver. The challenge deadline is today, so I'm quite late submitting my card.
Stamps: Chocolate Baroque - Holly Leaves
Inks: Versamark; Distress - Evergreen Bough
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 17 (S5-025) #6
Accessories: Gold and silver embossing powder; Black card from stash; Craft Work label sentiment
This is a really quick and easy card to make and I really like the effect you get combining different embossing powders. I started by stamping the image in Versamark and adding the gold and silver powder, heating and then cutting it out with the beautifully ornate Labels 17 die. I sponged on some colour around the edge of the card base and then, using the same colour, stamped the image directly onto the card base. I finished off with the sentiment label which I coloured to match the background. This looks very dramatic but is quick and easy enough to mass produce.
Before I go I'd like to welcome Anne-Elise - thanks for joining me. That's all for now - I'm off to the hairdresser to get my hair cut - ready for Christmas and the New Year. It's only two weeks to go!!! Take care, see you soon.
