Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you and yours. I am preparing this for scheduling earlier than usual as I'm at the dentist this afternoon (Thursday) and don't know if I will be up for blogging after having my mouth messed with.........a cracked porcelain inlay so it ain't going to be pleasant I'm guessing and I will probably be more distressed than a Tim Holtz card, but enough of my dental mishaps!!! Whilst I hopefully have your sympathy, will some kind soul please become a follower as I am on 13 currently and yes I am superstitious.
I am just testing how to link blogs so I am using Heather as guinea pig to see if you can link through to her blog by clicking here.
Now, I had done a second card using the double embossing on the background and here it is. Honestly Elaine, its not at all time consuming or tricksy. The card does have more of a greeny tinge in real life rather than the bluey tone showing on my screen but all screens seem to look slightly different.
The base card is a white 5x7 blank. I cut a slightly smaller mat from white card and stamped the rose stamp in Versamark and clear heat embossed. I then inked over the card with Broken China Distress Ink...............and this is what you get..........................
I then made sure that this was completely dry before stamping all over with another flower stamp in Versamark and clear heat embossing again. I then inked over this with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I could not get the photo of this stage to look right but you can see the effect on the close up below.
I just added a trio of strips of navy blue organza ribbon and topped them with SB Scalloped Ovals, which I inked to tone in with the background, and a sentiment from a Debbi Moore stamp set (freebie with something else).
Finished with a two finger bow made with pale blue and pale green organza ribbons.
That's me for now folks. Hopefully, by the time you read this, my tooth is sorted and I haven't been arrested for putting the dentist's drill somewhere about his person, requiring surgical removal LOL!!!
Have a good day.
