Stamp is by Stampabilities, embossed with Top Boss Gold embossing powder by Clearsnap.
The insert is cuttlebugged with the divine swirls folder.
I've been away from home, and from my creative space, for seven weeks. It is just so GOOD to be home, and to "nest" with my artsy things.
This is my submission for Nancy's Gothic Arch Challenge this week. I’ve used an Inkadinkado arches stamp with India Black Ink and a sentiment stamp from Quiet Fire Design, embossed with Top Boss Gold EP, paired with this beautiful image Nancy shared with me (THANK YOU Nancy!)
The bottom strip on this card is pop-dotted. This could be better seen if I'd taken a photo rather than scanning, but my camera is not cooperating these days, and is scheduled to be replaced...SOON I hope! (lol)
I really enjoy creating “no-occasion-just-because-I-like-you” cards.
Thanks for this challenge Nancy, for this theme Jacqueline, and for stopping by my blog.
This card used Leigh's Impression Obsession heart filigree stamp and a calligraphy sentiment stamp from Quiet Fire Design.
The stamp is initially stamped with the tinted Top Boss Embossing Pad on watercolour paper, then heat set with clear embossing powder. Then I wet the cardstock with a wide brush , and drizzle Ecoline Watercolour Inks in little "blobs" all over the image, moving the cardstock around in my hand to allow them to move freely all around the paper. After it's dry, I press the image between a couple of pieces of clean scrap paper and iron off the embossing powder (hot dry setting on the iron), leaving this "faux batik" look, which I really like.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment with Ancient Page Archival Dye Ink (Coal Black), and put the card together.
Earrings with Flora Hugabundos stamp on Twinkling H2O watercoloured background, and Anna Griffin Clear Glass coating over top.
Transparency Christmas card with the JJ border stamp. I added Tulip Fashion Bead Paint pearl drops to the border, and painted parts of it with Twinkling H2O's
