All the single ladies.. all the married ladies... all the happy ladies... all the moody ladies...! 'Tis another Monday morning and I'm here with my new piece for Simon Says Stamp & Show where it's a HEY GIRL thing! Girl power, femme fatale or delectable damsel... Take your pick!
Bubbly Circle background stamp from Wendy, it all came together!
Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper a test run to see how it took to a good dose of embossing and inkiness! I started out with a whole sheet of the paper and clear embossed the circle background over the whole surface.
Dylusions inks on top. I dried the surface and then went in again with the same colours but this time I sprayed through punchinella. I got a really nice kind of water mark effect! I wanted to bring out the clear embossing so I lightly buffed the surface which also blended the colours slightly too. I cut three large circles and stuck them to corrugated cardboard.
Wrought Iron Border in Jet Black Archival Ink. I heat set it all well to prevent smudges as the ink does stay a little wet due to the paper's special coating. It's a great paper and can take a lot of action! I stuck old dictionary pages to card, stamped three of Wendy's Art Rules girls and cut them out, adding a touch of colour to their features.
Same idea with the starry eye - except I embossed it with black powder for a glossy look!
Alcohol Inks in the same tones. The circles also have a washer base to help them stand and are joined together with a small cardboard hinge. Voila! An alternative greeting card!
Thanks calling by and taking a look - stay inspired!
See you soon,
