I would like to extend a welcome to my newest follower, Barb Finnical of
Stamping For Beginners and Beyond. Do pop over and visit, she has some wonderful work on display
Today's card features the Gina K Majestic Peony stamp, Stamped in Memento London Fog ink and coloured with Polychromo pencils.
I trimmed the image out, coloured the area at the rear that I did not trim, and attached it to the back of a standard fold card that opens from the left... I tried the technique here as taught by Jennifer McGuire - Don't know that I did it quite right, but it 'worked'
Here it is partially opened.
The base of the card was painted with some Cosmic Shimmer mousse in metallic blue. I cannot give your the exact colour as I am currently not at home... I am staying with a friend who had surgery this week.
I embossed the sentiment in silver onto the blue, and also added some silver sequins around the focal image, some of which are on the panel, and some on the blue background
The inside is a double spread that I layered over the base for added stability - I also stamped part of the image in the grey, splitting it over the two sides. The panels were edged with the blue, and an encouraging verse stamped in the grey on the left.
