I have been waiting to try out my new Starburst spray from Lindy’s Stamp Gang called ‘Bougainvillea Fuchsia’. It’s a gorgeous deep pinky/red shade with purple shimmer through it. Delish!

CARD THREE

stamps: Inspired Key 4685F, Audrey-esq 3199F, Embrace Beauty 4507D by Stamp-it

I stamped and embossed the key collage onto white card using black ink and powder. Unfortunately my powder seems to have got some moisture in it and is not behaving itself as I would like. On a separate piece of white card, I stamped and embossed the ‘Beauty’ wording in black also. I spritzed both cards with the Bougainvillea Fuchsia Starburst ink. Dry with heatgun. Sponge around both cards with sepia and black ink. Attach wording to top right of collage with two-sided tape.

Stamp lady twice onto ivory card with black pigment ink. Emboss one with black powder and the other with Holographic. Cut out lady in black completely. Cut out dress and gloves only, from holographic one and glue over main body. Holographic powder over black ink can be quite subtle depending on how the light hits it, it can look black or sparkly gold. Colour her hair using a brown texter and apply tacky glue to shoes. When glue is dry, lay over Gold Fab Foil to colour shoes. Glue lady into position at right of collage/wording.

Attach card front to black matt. Punch three holes at bottom right and secure black brads through. Tape card to apricot folded backing card.

Apply tacky glue along lines of Eiffel Tower. When dry, lay over Gold and Silver Fab Foils to decorate. Add crystal rhinestone to center of heart. Give lady a gold earring if desired using Gold Stickles.

napkin 013A butterfly collage card by Inkadinkado (Tin Can Mail) 91619X. I stamped it in Black Archival ink over a background coloured with Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral Distress Stain Sprays which I had dribbled some Glossy Accents over whilst still wet. I stamped the main butterfly and 2 postal marks out again onto some scrap white card, coloured them with pencils, then cut them out and mounted over images on main card. The butterfly is secured flat under it’s body, but has magic mount under it’s wings to lift them. Glossy Accents was then applied over it’s wings with a paintbrush to add sheen. When completely dry, I applied a thin glue to the main body and pressed some black and brown fine Flowersoft into it to create it’s hairy texture. Sponged around the edge with Sepia ink and layered onto black card, a scrap of script paper and main aqua backing card.hairy butterfly 005 hairy butterfly 003
