Hi everyone. I loaded up lots of photos over the weekend so that I could blog regularly this week, but as you can see, that hasn't' happened. I'm quickly popping in tonight to share with you, a card that I made for my friend Tracy, whose birthday was yesterday.
I cut and folded a card that measured 12cm x 12cm, from the Midnight Muse card stock. Then I used one of the Mixed Bunch stamps and stamped all over the front of the card with a Versamark ink pad. I haven't used this technique for a long time, but the watermark effect is one of my favourites. I used one of the Window Frames Collection Framelits to cut an aperture. Then, with one of the piercing templates, I pricked a pattern around the outside of the frame.
I stamped the same flower from the Mixed Bunch set, onto some Very Vanilla card stock, using Midnight Muse. I pricked a pattern around this using one of the other templates, and then mounted this panel behind the aperture.
I stamped another flower in the MM ink onto the VV card stock and cut it out using the co-ordinating punch. I curled the petals slightly and stuck this onto the other stamped image. I added a little gem in the middle of the flower to add a little bit of bling.
Hopefully, I will be back soon with some more cards - I've certainly been rather busy recently. Also I am really pleased to report that we are all finally getting back to normal, the coughs are starting to disappear and normal sleep has been resumed - hurrah!
Thanks for dropping by. Be back soon.
