Good Morning Ladies, the sun is out and the weather is dry and not so cold and we are of swimming in about 30 mins so Id better pull my finger out and get this card posted. Todays card is for the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge "Say it Flowers" and Ive used this gorgeous stamp for my card, in fact Ive used my Marvy pens to ink the design on the stamp before stamping it onto white card, I then used my brush and a little water to bleed out the colours. After which Ive cut it out with my rotatrim and then mounted it onto a piece of green pearlescent card, the sentiment was created on my computer and cut out and mounted in the same way as my image. (Can you see my deliberate mistake in my sentiment Ive now turned that weird stroke into a d, how annoying is that).
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same green card and three papers from Donna's Bearlymine "Plaids" digi papers, (dont forget that Donna has a 15% discount on all her gorgeous papers at the moment if you scroll down my blog you will find her code and the new beautiful paper sets shes now selling,) a very pretty one for the first layer has had its corners punched with a deep edged Flower corner punch, and on the two following papers which have been layered up, I have used the same design but in the border punch along the two edges, these were then stuck on top of the first layer. Across the middle I have wrapped a seam binding ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount, and created a bow from the same colour and attached a pearl brad in the centre, this was then stuck on top of the ribbon on the right hand side.
I then positioned my mounted image to the left hand side and the sentiment at the bottom to the right, and to finish of Ive stuck four green pearl gems down the front on the right hand side.
