I’m sure it’s wine o’clock somewhere in the world. Cheers and happy creating!

CARD FOUR

stamps: Time in Paris 4477E and Classy Lady 4251E both by Stamp-it

I made puddles of Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet Distress Stains on my teflon mat, then laid white card over. Stamp Paris clock in black ink. Apply fine line of tacky glue to circumference of clock. Set aside to dry, then lay silver Fab Foil over.

Stamp lady in black Archival ink onto scrap of white card. I used White Opal Liquid Pearls on her dress, applied with a paintbrush. I coloured her jewellery in with a blue texter, then added dots of Glossy Accents over. Red texter on lips and nails. Stardust Stickles for champagne bubbles. Sponged sepia ink around hair. When dry, cut her out, tearing across bottom of dress. Glue into position at right of clock stamp.

Stamp clock stamp again onto scrap of white card. Colour Eiffel tower with Victorian Velvet ink and white pencil. Apply tacky glue to swirl across base. Set aside to dry, then lay silver Fab Foil over swirls. Cut out tower and swirls only and glue over image on main card.

Cut card to size, tearing across bottom edge. Sponge all sides with sepia ink. Matt onto silver foil card which is slightly shorter to allow room for lace to be attached at bottom. Loosely fold some muslin behind and attach onto aqua card, then onto folded white backing card.

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.

Image (28) Here’s one more lady from a bygone era,  though not on the unmounted set with the  others.

 High Society Lady 3257H by Stamp-it.  Wording by Stamper’s Anonymous K4-1631.

 It’s a bit hard to see in the scan, but her dress  has a lovely shimmer to it. I coloured it with  “Sage” chalk, then spritzed  with “Perfect Pearl” PP Mist. The dress was cut  out and layered over stamped image. I used  “White Opal” liquid pearls for her pearl  necklace and to paint her gloves, and some yellow shades to add highlights in her hair.
