Can I just say a huge thanks to followers old and new who visit my blog regularly and leave lovely comments. They are truly appreciated as I know it is a busy time for everyone.
Below is a birthday card I recently made. The stamp is from Inkylicious, unfortunately I don't know whose background paper I have used as they were purchased in a pack that I must have discarded. I have certainly had them for some time !!. The flowers are Prima and were again purchased many years ago, so its great to use them. They are all white and I have inked them with vintage photo and tumbled glass DI's.
I used a flourish stamp inked with Archival Sepia on the actual card, which is 7" by 7". The same flourish was used on the background paper. Here I used Versamark and copper embossing powder, which was heat set. I used TH distressing tool on the edges then aged with vintage photo DI.
The edges of the main image were torn and inked with tumbled glass over vintage photo. The eyes and mouth were inked with TH Distress Markers.
Best wishes was inked with DI then spritzed with water as you can see below.
When piecing together I matted the background paper on to some light brown card and swiped some DI along the edges to give an aged look.
I am entering this project in the following challenges
Lots of crafting to do over the next few weeks as I am not organised at all..... but I always get there. My craft room is an absolute disaster, however, this year I can close the door instead of using the dining table and the cats wont get covered in glitter like they normally do.
Take care and keep warm. Catch up soon x
