Lumas Thorn and Card for Donna

Todays card has been created from the Lumas Thorn Stamp set, they are some of the Bearly Mine Designs, if you are interested in any of Donna's beautiful cds or even one of the last sets of the Lumas Thorn Stamps you had better go and visit her blogspot.

Ive used all three of the Elf stamps, their names are Egbert, Trump and Elvin, and with a Flower stamp from the Magnolia designs I have created a scene, masking where I needed to and creating more leaves around the stem. Ive coloured it with my Karisma Pencils and then because the design was to big to use one of the Nestabilitie dies I have cut it out with my Rotratrim, then mounted the stamped design onto a blue pearlescent card, but I have used a blue inkpad around the edge first.

The base card is again an 8"x 8" size and onto this I have layered up 3 of the papers that come with the stamps, using 3 different colours of pearlescent card to stick it to, then Ive layed the first layer straight and the other two at different angles.

Ive then stuck the stamped image into the centre of the card, and stamped a greeting from my Just-Rite stamps onto white card and cut it out with the circle Nestabilitie die and used a scalloped one for the mount and Ive stuck it on with a piece of foam. This has been positioned to the right of the stamped image, and then Ive found a butterfly and a couple of net flowers and attached them to the card, the flowers to the bottom left hand side and the butterfly on the actual stamped image.

Wow Shirley, you've certainly risen to the challenge my dear, this is probably one of the best usages of the elf stamps I've seen, using all three so close together, and your coloring is wonderful. I really like how you've used the papers, layering them at angles, it's a great layout. You've created a wonderful scene and a beautiful card......I love it.
Sending you lots of hugs
