Good afternoon! I'm catching up with admin and other boring behind the scenes stuff - Last week's release was a goodie - we are already sold out of Ocean Bound, although more had beem quickly ordered when we saw how fast they were going!
I have a wee sample today for you, one that I should have had up before the release, and it's a really simple card, it's a one layer if you don't count the card base....
I am particularly in love with the knot based set - Tying the knot and one of the things a I drew for that set was a corner knot - in the card above I have stamped it 4 times to create a square frame, how cool is that going to look on a gingerbread card this Christmas! Can't wait!
Anyhow, this card is all sponge and stamping, nothing too strenuous here, and I have a couple of little how-to pics:
After stamping the frame in red ink SU - Cherry Cobbler, I sponged with a little Antique linen ink. Now a lot of SU inks will bleed when you sponge over them and I picked Cherry Cobbler for that purpose. The Red and Antique linen mix well together to give a nice sort of glow.
Next I stamped the sentiment, from Safe Harbour sentiments, in black. Versamark Fine is my black of choice for detail.
Next thing was to trim out a fancy square shape from scratch paper with a Spellbinders Labels 15 die. I set the fancy square shape over the sentiment area on my card, held it down really tightly, and really went to town with the cherry cobbler and a sponge.
When I take it off I have a nice glowing panel that softly tones with the deep red of the frame. Mounted it on a Black card base and that was that....
hope it tickles....oh, btw, are you planning to play along with our Next Pajama Party? We'd love to see you!
