cameo - simon says stamp challenge

Well over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge they have a new challenge that this week is entitled cameo appearance. 


So I decided to join this challenge as I remembered that I had the stamps that I could use. 
Again I have turned to to the set of stamps that came with issue 14 of Creative Stamper magazine and the Kaisercraft papers. I stamped the cameo outline in versamark and embossed in black. I stamped the lady silhouette in versamark and again black embossed. I cut it out and giving it some dimension stuck it on cameo frame.


I created an easel card from a 6x6 card and layered it with kaiser craft papers and a lacy border that came with papers. I attached the cameo to the panel and added some pearl flourishes and an organza bow from some aqua ribbon that I had in my stash. I embellished the bow with a brad.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment from same set and die cut it with a spellbinder die. I created a mat by drawing around die and cutting it out with scissors. I added a couple of pearls and stuck it down with foam pads. Sorry the pic is lopsided but it turned during transfer and i couldn't change it.




Hope you like my make and if you don't mind leaving a comment to tell me what you think I'd be very pleased, Theresa xx
