Happy Wednesday! Well we are half way through another week. Today I have not one but two cards to share with you.
I'm using an image from Penny Black called - Melange. The first one worked up fairly quickly so I ended up making 5.
I started by embossing the image with white EP onto some Canson 140lb watercolour paper. I then added some oxide distress inks. The first one I used twisted citron, cracked pistachio and peacock feathers. After I added the inks I took an old rag and buffed the image - this makes the white embossing pop.
I trimmed down the image but die cutting a stitched rectangle (MFT), then I used Penny Black curved stitch die to cut my piece two. For the leaves along the top, I used Penny Black leaf edger die. I cut it from the same c/s as my base. For the sentiment I used the curved happy birthday from PTI - Fly away stamp set. I then added sequins to finish this off.
For my second card I used oxide ink colours - wild honey, worn lipstick and picked raspberry. The sentiment is from PTI - banner sentiments.
I made 2 of the first, 2 of the second - one was thinking of you and one thank you, and then I made another in lime green and purple, but don't have that one finished yet.
Have a wonderful day!
