A Stamped Card With More Swirls and Curls
Linda's alphabet challenge this week is S for stamping, how could I resist especially as Moth Fab (stampotique) arrived on my doorstep a few days ago! I've been waiting for her to come back into stock for ages so when she arrived I was keen to introduce her to ink and paper! I stamped her in Black Soot and coloured her with Copic markers, then I used distress inks to ink around her and to stamp swirls around the edges of the card. I layered her up with some olive green, spray inked, card and stitched around the layers twice. I distress inked the base of the base card with Milled Lavender and stamped more swirls again in Milled Lavender. Then I stuck the stitched panels into place.
I cut a tag out (Spellbinders die), stamped it and then coloured it before running it through the swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. Then I distress inked it again to pick out the embossing. The flowers were punched from card that I had distress inked and stamped with swirls. The layers of the large flower were embossed in the same way as the tag. The leaves were punched out of a piece of spray inked card. I only saw this punch on Wednesday and thought how nice it was, so much so that I had to go back to the shop and get it yesterday. I'm really glad I did, as I can already see that it is going to be very versatile, even it I did have to stand on it to get it to punch!
Having made the card I realised that it would fit the "Tuesday Taggers" Swirls and Curls challenge and hopefully give me the chance to take part in the competition to win some goodies from "Crafty Individuals"
Oh I almost forgot....just remembered that I used a little bit of Sakura pen to add a tiny bit of subtle glitz...just saw it on the close up while I was previewing this post!
