Wednesday already so its time for another great recipe from Cooking it up with Katie and this weeks fabulous sponsor GingerLoft. I chose this beautiful romantic silhouette image from GingerLoft for my DT card this week and of course our recipe ingredients which are 'TEXTURE, SKETCH, PUNCHING'
I've used this weeks sketch from 'Sketch'n'Stash', I love this sketch and thought it would be perfect for the image. I've used black card and made an 8x8 base card, red bp from K&Co stamped with some HOTP swirls and embossed with black EP. The main image is coloured with promarkers and triple embossed, matted on some red glitter card. The glitter card has been in my stash for years, its gorgeous in real life as the glitter is under a layer of shimmery film but it doesn't seem to like having its photo taken lol.
I made a frame using black mirri card and and little swirl stamps embossed with firework red EP. The red and black glittery layer adds the texture and punching for this weeks recipe. I made it using the glittered lace technique - really easy and fun but pretty messy. I stuck double sided film to some card and laid a strip of broad lace over the top and then tipped a load of black glitter over the top and brayered it with an old hard rubber brayer. The lace acts as a resist so when you remove the lace you are left with the pattern in glitter. Next you cover the card with a contrasting colour glitter, I used red and when you tip off the excess the lace pattern is all sparkly and glittered!!
I punched the bottom of the glittered lace card with an EK success scallop punch. A word of warning though, I nearly broke one of my Martha Steward punches trying to use it so if you have a try make sure you use a strong punch. To finish off I added some dots of ranger black enamel accents, some black velvet ribbon and some rose from Wild Orchid Crafts
