Good afternoon my lovely Followers, Crafty Friends and Visitors,
Hope everyone is fit and well at the beginning of another new week The older I get, the faster they seem to go lols !!! they should be slowing down as I get older, not speeding up lols!!. Well an early blog from me today. Housework all done, lunch over and no distractions, so onto today's card. This card was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts in June 2012 ready for the Christmas shows, hope you like it.
Now this is one of my favourite Christmas stamps, I know, I have lots of favourites lols ! but it is such a lovely dove isn't it? I chose not to use the traditional colours for this project but to use pastel shades and if I say so myself, it has worked quite well. I hope you think so too. Ok off we go, let's get started shall we?
Make a base card from pink card stock. Matt some navy card onto the pink, leaving a small border of pink showing. Take a piece of white card again slightly smaller than the navy and stamp the words 'Joy' and 'Peace' plus the olive branch, using the Versamark pad, around the edges of the white card. Then heat emboss using silver embossing powder. Fix this to the navy card.
Take another piece of white card and stamp the main image of the dove onto it using the Versamark pad and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Using a paintbrush, a little water and the Chalkies, colour over the white embossing. Stamp 'Love' onto the top of the dove image with the Versamark pad and heat emboss with silver powder. Cut out the stamped image and matt onto some silver mirror card, then matt onto some navy card, leaving small borders each time.
Take more white card and stamp the image a further four times, again using the Versamark pad and heat emboss with silver powder. Cut out and 3D the dove and the branch and fix to the original image with silicone glue. Do the same with the small image of the dove but do not 3D this. Fix it to the top of the main image with a sticky foam pad. Add four square holographic mosaics to the white border. Well that's all folks, card is finished. Must go now, have to meet my beautiful Grandson from the school bus. Take good care of yourselves until my next blog. Remember! crafting is fun, so.....have some fun !
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx
