Hello again. It seems like ages since my last post. However my laptop decided not to let me load my profile and though I tried to use my husband's iPad I didn't manage to post anything. Me and technology are not best mates.....
So here I started with a square piece of white card which i spritzed with water. I stamped the rose blush stamp, by IndigoBlu, which i had inked with cracked pistachio onto damp card and held it there for a few seconds so the ink reacts with the water.
Once I was happy with the way the ink had run, I dried it with a heat gun. Next I over stamped it with black archival ink and dried it again. Then I went outer edges with stamp and cracked pistachio, creating a border all around.
Then I decided to jazz the picture up a bit so i went round central image with a quickie glue pen and once cured, I added gilding flakes. for the central image i used variegated green and chocolate flakes.
I also went round the outer edges with the glue and added flakes there as well.
I also stamped a border along right hand side of base card with cracked pistachio and inked around outer edges.
I then stamped sentiment in black archival ink and clear embossed with detail powder.
Now it was time to stain the ribbon and for this I used white seam binding which I stained with the same distress stain so everything matches. I added ribbon along 2 corners of the topper and on the base card on left hand side. I edged the ribbon on base card with some lace.
I really hope you like my offering, I certainly enjoyed making it, Theresa xx
