Hope you are all having a good weekend. I want to Thank you all for being here with me still, I really do appreciate it and You have really helped me beyond words and I have made real and lasting friends that feel like family now too.
That said today I have a nice little card with the gorgeous Visible Image stamps I had just done my inspiration piece for July 1st and which has some really rich colours in it so I wanted to go opposite with this one and went all pastel and shabby chiq colours so here it is see what you think ?
polka dot background stamp and the Harlequin background stamp and stamped in opposite corners, I kept it fairly neat for this one but I know These backgrounds look just as amazing if you turn them and stamp randomly off the page and create a frame to pull the eye into the centre etc. I used versamark and clear embossing powder for both these stamps for the background. I then chose some distress colours to work with and thought Id use ones I haven't mixed before so I chose these two.
The wedding day set. I stamped it in brown as I thought black would just be too harsh with these lovely ice cream buttery colours. I cut it out with a simple die and then layered it up onto aqua card to match the hearts and the double mat in the background.
I did add a small strip of seam binding in the middle for decoration and also to cover the gap between the two die sets.
Here are the stamps I used on today's project .
So there it is today's little card, very simple techniques but I am sure you will agree it came out very pretty in the end.
Would you like to see a couple of tutorials this week on some techniques like the utee one and the above crackles etc rather than full cards on the days I don't have the usual cards, sort of an extra?
let me know in your comments below if you will .
Have a wonderful Sunday and I hope the rain isn't your way and you are ok, I am thinking of those lovely ladies that have a few problems right now and if you ever need an ear please feel you can email me privately anytime, I will always answer you as soon as I can.
Lots of hugs to you all
