Good morning, today's card features the new Gothic Fragments stamps available from Chocolate Baroque, this is a lovely stamp sheet which lends itself to so many different projects.
The background was made using a Crafters Workshop mask and distress inks to create a brick effect, I thought this would echo the bricks around the window image. I coloured the window image with promarkers and carefully cut out the 'glass' using a craft knife and die cut the image using nesties. I stamped the image again on acetate and embossed with black embossing powder and then used adhesive film to attach gilding flakes to the reverse of the image before attaching it behind the window. The sentiment is from 'Words of Comfort and Cheer' stamped with versamaemark and embossed an with an antique gold embossing powder. To finish off I added a bow andtwo delicate borders, die cut from white card using Crealies dies.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Bloggers: anything goes
Hiding in my Craft Room: die cuts
Its all about the vintage: embossing
My time to craft: just sepia
One Crazy Stamper: Clear or acetate
Squirrel and the fox: use a ribbon
Stamptacular Sunday: No rules
Well I'd better get organised and go to work, its really grey and miserable here at the minute, just the weather for bunkering up in my craft room but I suppose I'll have to get wrapped up and go earn some pennies.
Thanks for popping by today
