Good morning folks, hope you're having a good week so far. My card this morning features the beautiful new 'Indian Elephant' stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I just love these stamps, they shout out for lots of rich vibrant colours!
I began by creating a frame from black card with a border punch. I stamped the flower with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Inside the frame I used a piece of card covered with layers of chiffon, I used a pokey tool to fray the layers to add a little interest. I used the same stamp but this time I used gold stazon, I stamped the smaller motif with black stazon. I wasn't sure if the stazon would work but I didn't have any fabric ink pads so I just had a play and I was really pleased with the effect.
The topper is a stampboard ATC, I created the background with clayboard inks and embossed the delicate image with black embossing powder.
To finish off I added a little ribbon and a gold metal corner from my stash.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: trees
Get Inky: Bling
Sweet Stamps: use 3 of any item (3 pieces of chiffon)
Through the craft room door: anything goes

Well its time to go to work again, don't you feel like a little hamster in a wheel sometimes?

Very striking combination of colours & I love the gold on black stamping echoed by your metal corner embellishments. I'm completely out of my depth when it comes to fabric but this looks stunning.ReplyDelete
