Hope you are having a good weekend. I'm combining challenges again this week with Lili of the Valley where there is a sketch to follow,
and also Stamp Something where they are looking for distressing. I managed to use bits and pieces I haven't used for ages, such as the cherub stamp (PB) and a 'lace' backing paper which came from a Joanna Sheen pad.
The image was stamped on watercolour paper and cut out with a circular nestie. I left the paper in the nestie and inked inside it with Antique Linen D.I. I coloured the cherub with a combination of D.I.'s, watercolour pencils and a felt tip pen. The embossed border strips were a Christmas present (I don't know who makes them) and these were inked with Tattered Rose D.I. Both the mats were distressed around the edges and I used dimension tape to raise them off the card slightly. Next I inked and stickled some Prima flowers and one punched out flower, and added buttons and dewdrops. An inked up sentiment from Craftwork Cards and more inking round the edges of the card blank finished it off. I gave this card a liberal dose of Stardust Stickles, so fed up am I that it never shows up in my photo's, and STILL you can hardly see it and I took this photo outdoors!
Must get back to the kitchen now as I have friends coming for dinner this evening and a Gratin Daupinois needs prepping.
Thanks for stopping by,
