Good morning to you! How are you today? I'm feeling good - I had a fasting day yesterday and feel so much the better for it - its hard but I find its great to do every now and again - just gives the old digestive system a rest!
Today I've got a card to show you made using stamps from Sheena's Oriental Range. I used an acetate overlay too - here it is.
I stamped the fish first of all in black archival and added clear embossing power and heat set - then I stamped the water ripples in the same way. I painted the fish using distress inks -fired brink, spiced marmalade and scattered straw. Then I painted the water using distress inks - chipped sapphire, pine needles, tumbled glass and faded jeans. Next I left this to dry and made the acetate overlay - I stamped the two lilies in black staz-on - then painted on the reverse with silkies from imagination crafts and left this to dry. Meanwhile I added some UTEE into my meltpot and when melted I poured it onto my craft sheet then stamped with the coin stamp inked up with archival ink.
Once everything was dry i assembled the card using some black card that I embossed with sheenas maple leaf folder and also some garden twine and brads.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
