Wow! I really have had no time this week. I am in "hot demand":) So my post today will be brief. I really still would love to share some stories but I can't swing it today. Here is my project using Kristina's color inspiration. Black is just a great "color". I'm so glad we are getting back to using it more in the crafting world.
I wanted to tell you that I DID iron my sheet. It just goes to show why they will never employ me at the dry cleaners for pressing pants:) You should be focusing on the card anyways.
I used Whisper white as my base. I then used some really cool DP from My Mind's Eye, I think. I used a Martha Stewart border punch along the edge and tied this with gray taffetta ribbon. I used a hat pin from the Pretties Kit. I still haven't quite got the hang of these. My image is from Abundant Blessings (Verve) and was stamped using Brilliance Black and then quickly embossed with Iridescent Ice. I had to go over some areas with my versamarker and and the iridescent ice. Handy thing to have, that versamarker. The "vase" is made by punching out a black oval using the largest SU oval punch. I then lopped off the top and bottom. This was then "smooshed " onto my versamark pad and embossed with Ultra Thick EP several times. I put it in my freezer for about 5 minutes and then bent it. This is called cracked glass. I love this technique. Here is a close up of the details.
A few other details that I did were paper piercing and I cut out some of the flowers and applied them to the main image with small slivers of dimensionals. I also used the retired SAB set called SO VERY for the blessed sentiment and used the other 2 SU oval punches.
I ended up smearing a bit of black when I was all done. BLEK! My daughter assured me that it was still beautiful. She's so supportive of my "work". Love her!
Hope you have a great Friday. I will hopefully have more time to post tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
