Hope you have a happy day
Jane Castle has dropped by today
with a beautiful cheery project
that's sure to bring a smile or two
"I am a big fan of Lavinia Stamps so was very delighted
when this topic came up.
The card I'm sharing with you today
is fairly simple to produce but has
a girlie magic about it.
To begin with I stamped Believe onto a piece of shrink Plastic
in Brilliance Pearlescent Olive and Starlite Black.
This was then cut to size and 2 holes punched
at the top before heating to shrink.
This was then threaded with some bakers twine
and set aside whilst I continued with the card.
For this I started with a blank DL sized card
and coloured the background with Distress Inks
and a blending tool.
Then using a small sponge and a torn piece of paper
added cloud/mist hi-lights before stamping the bottom
and sides with the flower border stamp and Starlite Black ink.
Whilst the ink was still wet I brushed on some
mica powder to give the fairy dust feel.
The fairies were then stamped in black and as there are
just 3 dancing fairies on this stamp I positioned the second set
of 3 so the ribbon at the top entwined to give the appearance
of it just being one continous stamped image.
I then added detail to the ribbon with a fine black pen and tiny dots.
Lastly I stamped 2 clusters of stars each side of the Believe banner
and brushed them with perfect pearls.
The nice thing about cards like this is they are suitable
or any age group young or more mature!"
Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet, Twisted Citron and Pumice Stone
Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Olive and Starlite Black
Cosmic Shimmers Mica Powder in Black Pearl
A delightful card Jane, very many thanks.
This would be a good one to
have as a standby I feel so guess
what I'm going to do this afternoon?!
