Darling Of Course....
I'm really sorry that I am hit and miss at the moment but its the house move that's taking up every spare minute we seem to get – opps just told you all a little white lie – the sun was yelling at me yesterday so I just had to laze around in the garden!!! Got a lovely start to the suntan though.
A few days ago I mentioned I had a couple of stamped cards to share so this is the first.
I used some amazing stamps from a new company http://www.aciddropsandwhatnots.co.uk/
The stamps are so different – really quirky – great fun...
And as you can see they work well when simply matted and layered in basic colours!!!
I have just been back on the website and ordered another couple of stamps for when I manage to get my new craft room set up again!!!
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
6x6 scalloped card blank
sheet of grey backing paper by Papermania
Stamp AD20 Lost 14 stone
Oddments of black card
flat back pearls in natural and metallic grey
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
The scalloped card blank was folded in half then I trimmed a piece of grey patterned paper to fit the front leaving the scallops clear – the corners of the paper were nipped with a corner punch then paper stuck in place with double sided tape.
I stamped the lady using Black Memento ink pad, trimmed it down, nipped the corners then matted onto a piece of black card – nipped those corners then stuck to the left hand side of the card front again with double sided tape.
Next I stamped 2 of the sayings – the Darling at the top with the lovely shaped divider across the bottom and then the 2nd part of the verse.
Like the main image I nipped the corners, matted onto black with nipped corners then added to the card at an angle with double sided tape.
All that was left was to decorate and that was quick and easy..
I used natural coloured flat backed pearls in the 4 corners of the lady and in the centre of the black flowers of the backing paper.The metallic grey pearls were stuck in each corner of the sayings and also in the centre of the white flowers of the back ground.
I may when I find my crafty things – add a dot or two of colour to the lady – or even a sprinkling of glitter – but for now she is as she is!!!
And that's the card completed.
I did have someone in mind to send it off to but did something different so this is in the to use or to sell box
Catch you again “sometime soon”– same place folks
