Cooking it up with Katie challenge # 19
Well I have managed to get a bit if crafting done - while the children were in bed and hubby was reclining on the sofa comfortably with the aid of a load of pain killers ! (he had an op this week).
So here it is - I LOVE this stamp. My sister bought it for me years ago for christmas and it is still one of my fav's.
For this easel card I have stamped the image with versamark and then coloured with chalk which I think gives a really romantic feel - I wish I could take better photos - some things just get lost in translation.
The flourish stamp is one from a HOTP kit and the sentiment stamp is a Kelly Panacci. I stamped the flourish with a 3 colour brilliance inkpad then added some embossing with my embossing pen and some sparkle gold emb' powder - this is again lost in the photo but looks fab.
I have the lovely Katie over at Cooking it up with Katie to thank for the embossing - I rarely get out my embossing powders and heat gun but for this weeks challenge she has asked us to include the colour green, embossing and ribbon - so thanks Katie for making me dust of some old stash x
The pearls, from stash, were the wrong colour so I used my copics to match them up - simples !
As well as the challenge over at cooking it up with Katie I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Crafty Creations - Stitching - added by hand - don't have a fancy machine :-(
For Fun Challenges - Chalk popping
Stamp Something - Something summer (summer colours and summer flowers)
Paper Play Challenges - Something old (stamp and embossing stuff !)
Thanks for looking - I hope you like it - it was a joy to make x
((hugs)) Suzie xx
