Well I have managed to get time this morning to put together a couple of cards using the backgrounds I showed earlier in the week.
The first one uses the Verdigris EP over heated Bondaweb for a distressed look which reminded me of old garden ornaments and in particular sundials. So I stamped a sun image by Magenta onto brown cardstock and heat embossed using a Copper EP. After trimming I rubbed a little Cosmic Copper Brilliance ink over it and also over the distressed background to tone it down.
It has been layered onto a card blank with a cut and fold front which has been stamped around the frame with a bee stamp and a paintbrush handle dipped into the copper ink pad for the dots.
The inner back of the card has been covered with a garden themed paper by K&Co.
I finished off with copper brads.
The second card has been done on the Blue Glue
and Embossing Powder background.
The paper is from a DCWV stack and the glue background has been layered onto some gold pearlised card.
The flower has been stamped twice onto smooth cream card and has been painted using Walnut Color Wash Inks from 7 Gypsies and the cream area painted with Pebeo Touch which was watered down slightly and gives a slightly waxy look when dry.
The whole image was cut for the first layer and the flower only for the second.
A ribbon embellishment and a foiled greeting finish off the card which would make a lovely Mother’s Day card.
Right………off to see what the next job is on my list.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
