I took an hour today to play – I have a few deadlines that are looming, but I needed a break from a project I'm working on!….I saw this picture a few days ago, and thought – Hmmmmm, I bet I can do that in ink
I needed a solid leaf stamp, so I decided this one in GREAT FRIEND STAMP SET (page 122) #113792 $17.95 would do the trick.
I stamped the image with Versmark and embossed it with clear embossing powder
Then I sponged Old Olive and Marina Mist onto it.
I stamped the leaf again with Versamark and covered it with Clear Embossing powder and heat set it again,
Then I sponged Night of Navy onto it – can you see how the layers of the clear embossing are protecting the different colors of sponging as I'm working my way through it.
HMMMM – some rubber gloves might have been a good idea here!, LOL….
Ok, are you ready to see the finished card?
I did the card in Night of Navy, 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2
the art piece is Whisper White, 3-1/2 x 4-3/4,
matted with Whisper White, 3-5/8 x 4-7/8
and Pear Pizzazz 3-3/4 x 5
I stamped and embossed the dove with White Embossing powder on a piece of Shimmer Gold,in real life, it is really really pretty. The Dove Stamp is from the PEACEFUL SEASON HOSTESS LEVEL 2 STAMP SET in the Holiday Mini Catalog
Well, that was a great creative break, I enjoyed that, sure hope you did too. The whole card took about 20 minutes to do.
Ok, I'm back to my other project, which would be the Project for tomorrow's Countdown to Christmas. It is done, I'm just finishing the PDF file for you. see you then.
