Hi again, today's card was made for 4 challenges! They are Our Creative Corner "cut it out" , The MoxieFabWorld's Stamping with Shimmer Sprays for the Stamp It! Techniques Week, The Cupcake Inspirations #98 pic above and I have based the card on the Waltzing Mouse SC #34, also shown above. It is quite rare for me to be able to combine challenges, at least usually not more than two!
~For the card base, I took two green velum panels and before sandwiching together to place in an embossing folder, I laid one of the panels in white craft ink. I like the effect that the craft ink gives to the plain area of the velum, like a parchment.
~I stamped the Lockheart orchid in PTI black ink and clear embossed. This gave me the little "walls" that I wanted to contain the glaze and shimmer mist in place.
~I used a Claudine Helmuth white glaze on the orchid petals and painted the leaves with a green shimmer mist from Tattered Angels. The pot was coloured with a few Copic markers.
~I used a lavender coloured thread to stitch around the edges to a BG Kioshi patterned paper larger panel.
~I stamped this ornate frame from PTI's Mat Stack II stamp set and painted the same glimmer mist into the open work of the flourished frame. It looks like a different colour on the purple BG paper, but it is the same shimmery green. Fussy cut this out.
~I stitched this narrow hand dyed ribbon with the same thread, using a straight stitch and cinched up to form the teeny ruffling effect, laid across the front panel and wrapped around the card front before adhering the panel to a white card base.
That's it :)
Thanks for taking a peek today, your kind comments are always appreciated !
