Well, life is back to normal again after the Bank Holiday. Hope you all had a good time. I would like to share a card with you tonight I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts. The stamp I have used is one of their new Art Stamps, the Lily. I just love this stamp, it is such an elegant design and would be very appropriate for a sympathy card. I have used Imagination's new Mixed Media Inks for this card.
I used a 7"x7" ready creased white card for this design. Matt a grey card onto the white base card, then blue onto the grey and then lavender onto the blue, leaving small borders of the previous matts showing.
Colour a piece of white card with the spray inks, Fuchsia, yellow & blue. If I remember rightly, I think I sprayed a little gold mica powder, mixed with a little water on top of the colours, using a spritzer, to give a slight golden sheen to the image.
Stamp the lily image onto the coloured card, using a well used black ink pad (this gives a more subtle look to the image, allowing some of the colours to shine through, giving a slightly 'shabby' look to it.)
Trim this down, then matt onto a larger square of metallic gold card and then onto some blue card. Fix this to the centre of the lilac card.
Stamp 'Best Wishes' at the bottom, using a black ink pad. Glue three gemstones to the top right and a blue organza ribbon bow to the top left of the card.
Well that's it finished, I do hope you like it. Thank you for visiting my blog and please feel free to leave me a comment, I would love to hear what you think, I read each and every one and I will in return, visit your blog too. I will back back in a day or so with another creation.
Love and rainbows,
