So have you all noticed something different about my blog???? I changed my blog banner..and I am so proud because I created this all by myself...I am loving that I have learnt something new about software etc...this morning I have been sitting here on a cold Autumn day by the fire with my Roly boy and tweaking the banner just slightly...let me know what you all think?
Before I went down hill quickly with the flu I did manage to create a card based upon Autumn and these photos that I took last year...I was in awe of the depth of colour that Mother Nature could produce, so hence found the inspiration to create a card based upon the colours I saw in the photos.
Taking Hero Arts water color paper and the Luscious Ledger stamp, inking it with Versamark Ink and stamping over the trimmed piece of paper, I heat embossed some white embossing powder over the top and once cool, I took distress inks, Brushed Corduroy, Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge and applied heavily over the top of the embossing, giving the emboss resist technique...I flicked water over the top to add some interest and quickly heat zapped it once more to dry. Staying with the distress inks, I took a Hero Arts white flower and applied Wild Honey and a dab of Rusty Hinge, then filling one of my mini misters with water and Perfect Pearl, Pearl, adding a few scoops of this into the mini mister, spraying over the flower to give it a pearlised look, heat setting it and adding some twine to the back of the flower. Next, trimming some white card stock and stamping a sentiment from the Lauderdale Floral stamp set, adhering the white card stock to the front of the ledger stamped paper, adding lace at the top of the white card stock and then the flower using foam dimensionals. Finally adding gems and pearls and adhering this to a trimmed white card to complete.
I had a lot of fun creating this card with lots of techniques and fabulous inky fingers by the end....
Here is a close up of the flower, you can see the pearlised look.
