After a dull wet start this morning, the afternoon turned out to be quite nice with some sunshine ! Thought it had gone forever lol! The card I would like to share with you, was the last of the cards made for the Create & Craft T.V. show, last Friday. I am really a stamper at heart, although I do enjoy using all kinds of techniques, stamping is still my passion, so I have used Imagination Craft's 'Lilies' decoupage stamp set.
Fold the ready creased white card down the centre crease line, making a 7"x7" base card.
Put some orange oxidation Starlight paint onto a work mat and paint a piece of white card with the paint, or use a brayer to spread the paint (if using a brayer, you will have to work quite quickly, as this paint dries almost instantly).
When this is dry, stamp the main lily image onto it, using a black ink Matt this onto a square of white card, then onto a square of black card, each time leaving a small border showing.
Take the main white base card and stamp the scroll stamp from the lilies set, across the card, leaving a border of white card showing around all the edges. Spread some of the orange oxidation paint onto a work matt and dab the scroll stamp into it, then stamp onto the card.
Using a black pen, draw a square around the stamped images, using squiggly lines and zig zags. Die-cut the contempo circles strip from black card and glue down the inside left-hand of the square.
Die-cut another strip and from this, cut out two triangles and glue inside the top and bottom right-hand corners of the square.
Fix the main lily image on an angle, to the centre of the base card. Glue three small black circles to the top and bottom borders, ( left over after die-cutting the contempo circles).
Stamp the lily again onto black card using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Cut out the lilies only and glue to the original stamped image.
This photograph shows the effect of light on this fabulous Starlight paint, just gorgeous. Finally, glue a gold bow to the right of the main image.
That's this card finished. I'm off to do a little commenting, then it's the land of nod for me, as it is going on for midnight again lol! Catch you all soon. Have a good Friday all.
Love and rainbows,
Big hugs, Jennifer xx
