It's my sisters birthday today and this is the card I have made for her. All the family are going out for a meal tonight at my favourite restaurant so I am really looking forward to it and it gives me an excuse to dress up a bit. It will be nice to get out of my scruffs for a while as I have spent the last few days sorting the garage and the garden out, with several visits to the tip inbetween. How cleansing is it to get rid off all the rubbish that we hold on to?
Anyway back to my card.
I have made the card using Stampotique rubber stamp Karin and they have been colured using distress inks - Squeezed Lemonade, worn lipstick, peacock feathers and vintage photo.
|Canvas Corp cardstock pad|
This is how the background paper started off, I then coloured it with
distress inks squeezed lemonade,worn lipstick & peacock feathers. I then added further dimension by adding newsprint candi coloured with the same coloured distress inks into some of the swirls.
Behind this I have embossed cordinations pink cardstock with a cuttlebug swirly embossing folder.
I stamped the sentiments with versamark and heat embossed with Ruby Blush Blaze Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder (loving that pink). I stamped stampotique ink splat stamp onto book paper and punched out hearts to form a border. The whole card has been matted and layered using black cardstock and more of the pink cordinations which have had the edges sanded.
