Heres a picture of her card - thankfully, she likes the distressed effect!
A mat of Newsprint DSP (lined paper) was stamped with the Sanded background stamp and the edges darkened using Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber. Then I inked the large image from Notably Ornate in Stazon ink and stamped onto the mat.
Then I used the Texture Wheel with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder to heat emboss some texture onto the mat. Once this cooled I inked the edges more with Early Espresso do give a bit more contrast.
The flower was cut from the Sizzix Fun Flowers die and the edges curled before mounting with dimentinals and a button added to the centre. The little tags attached to the button are from the Tiny Tags set and punched out with the Medium Jewelery tag punch.
To finish off I stamped the bird from Notably Ornate on the top corner of the mat, punched a thin strip of Very Vanilla card with the Eyelet Border punch, attaching it to the opposite side and then secured the flower.
Well, thats all from me today. Sorry, but I have to prepare for a large workshop tomorrow in Sheffield in the morning. But I will bob back to update you with things again soon.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend
