Here is my phrase clue for the GRAND PRIZE: STAMPS
The Blog Stroll continues at Sherry’s Blog
My card today starts with the newly released Flower Silhouettes set and the Flourish and screen backgrounds that were released last week. I love how the flourish background goes with the new stamp set! The technique is Faux Bleach using White Simply Smooth Prism cardstock. The background was stamped in Distress Embossing Ink and embossed with clear powder. Next comes the Alcohol inks from the new Country side collection. The colors in the set include Shell Pink, Willow and Cloudy Blue. To reveal the embossed image, place a sheet of copy paper over the top of the layer and iron off the embossing powder. (you will see it melt into the copy paper) The flourish from Flower Silhouettes was stamped in the corners using Distress Walnut Stain. The layer was sewn on to Prism Baby Pink Medium and then Spring Willow Medium. The layers of ribbon sewn on the faux bleach layer are both May Arts – 1” lt. blue woven edge satin & 5/8” variegated organdy. My little tags measure 1” x 2” and were inked up with the rock n roll technique and the screen background was stamped over the top. The words are all one long stamp. I sewed the tags onto a layer of Prism Baby Blue Medium, trimmed and then layered on the Baby Pink Medium. I accordian folded the tag and mounted it on foam dimensional tape for a little dimension. The center tag sports more May Arts ribbon including a variegated green fiber and 1/2” Blue/Brown dotted organdy. Lastly, the beautiful buttons are SEI from the Poppy collection. The pink ones were smooshed into my Distress Worn Lipstick pad and air dried. I sanded the edges of some of the buttons for a worn look. They are sewn to the card using Linen Thread.
