I knew when I saw the latest stamps from Sheena Douglas, that I had to have them. As it was my Birthday last weekend my Son brought them for me, so once cut out I had to use them. I loved the cards on the recent show, on C and C, that were stamped onto blue backgrounds and embossed with white embossing powder, this was my first attempt at recreating something similar. First I made a background by using Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress stains onto my glass cutting board and spritzing with plenty of water, I placed the card face down onto the ink and moved around a little to make sure it was all covered. I dried with a heat gun and then over sprayed with some tattered angel spray to give it a bit of a shimmer. I left it to dry overnight and then this morning I stamped with the new stamps, using perfect medium and WOW bright white embossing powder. I then mounted onto some Silver mirri card, and a 6x6 navy blue card base. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque from an old sheet of Christmas sentiments, which I think have been discontinued, but there are plenty more available form the website. I think the combination of the blue and white are perfect for Christmas cards.
Thank you for taking the time to look. Your kind comments are always appreciated.
