Perfume Bottles.

Hello Everyone,

Yet another lovely day but boy has the temperature dropped tonight lol!   Hope you've all had a good day whatever you have been up too and that you  are looking forward to the weekend.   We spent yesterday in the garden, tidying up and have been out shopping all day.   So lovely to get back home this evening, put my feet up, read my new craft mags, along with a lovely cup of tea! ah heaven.

If I have not already welcomed you to my blog as a follower, I must appologise as I have lost count of who has just joined lol!   old age creeping up on me I think!     so if I have - welcome to my blog, hope you enjoy your visits and thaks for following my blog.

Tonight I have a card to share with you which was made recently and uses a beautiful Art stamp from Imagination Crafts.   I just adore this stamp, so artistic and such beautifully designed.

Fold the scalloped. white 8"x8" ready creased card in half.   Take a smaller square of white linen card and paint all four edges with the Antique Gold Starlight paint. (No need to paint the rest of the card as only the edges will be seen.)   Matt this onto the base card.

Matt a smaller piece of navy card onto the gold-edged card.   Take a smaller square of white card and using the Versamark pad, stamp the Lacy Square in the top left corner and heat emboss with the navy embossing powder.   Repeat this in the bottom right corner.

Next, lay the Mountain Stream' stencil onto the empty top right square, tape it down and spread a mixture of the Canadian Blue and Periwinkle Blue, over the design, adding a small amount of the Spearmint on top.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.   Repeat this again on the bottom left empty corner.   Matt this onto the base card.

Colour a piece of white linen card with the Antique Gold Starlight paint, using a brush or a brayer.   When dry,  stamp the perfume bottles onto it, using the Versamark pad and heat emboss with navy embossing powder.

Trim the image, leaving a tiny border of gold showing and matt this onto larger piece of navy card.   Glue this to the centre of the base card.

Die-cut the flowers using the Memory Box die and colour them with the Sax Blue and Antique Gold Starlight paints and watered down Sax Blue paint for the light blue flowers.   Die-cut one flower from white card.

Glue these to the bottom right of the perfume bottles image.   Lastly glue a light blue ribbon bow to the  centre top of the image.   Unfortunately the beautiful sheen from the Starlight paints do not show up very well on these photos.

Well, that's this card finished,  hope you  all have a lovely weekend, whatever you have planned.   I'll see you again in a day or so, until then stay safe and above all 'be happy.'

                                                                 Love and rainbows,

                                                             Crafty Hugs   Jennifer xx.
