Ed - I have a wee tutorial up my sleeve for anyone interested - prob be posting it after tomorrows card - there's a couple of neat effects you can get with a metal stencil and a cuttlebug - tomorrows card shows another look using the same stencil as today.
Took a few moments to make a Mojo Monday card yesterday - this is for the week 83 sketch. I love these sketches and I love trying to put my own spin on them but I can't claim the bow in the hole!! I saw that done on Becca Feeken's blog here - isn't that just divine - had to have a go!!
I found an adorable little metal quilt stencil at the craft show the other day, I'm so sorry I didn't buy more...anyhow - ran it through the cuttlebug with slightly dampened cardstock (PapertreyInk, vintage cream) to get a decent emboss and then rubbed over it with Distress ink - (Antique linen, Tim Holtz) I am so loving how this turns out. Matted it onto some beigy fawny cardstock that was languishing in the back of the drawer and pinked around it.
The sentiment and needle stamps are from PapertreyInk, Quilters sampler stamp set - and I curved the sentiment slightly (love those clear stamps for that reason) to follow the curve of the bottom panel. Background was swiss dotted in the cuttlebug.
To get the curve I drew round a plate and cut it with a scalpel. Same thing on the beige card, but i then cut it with pinking shears.
Click on the pic to see deets, it's pale in the photo but stands out good IRL.
