.....so today I cut out the piece that had the flowers masks on even though it has runny marks on it I think it adds to the interest. I know when I saw a demo using glimmer mists the lady blotted the paper after spritzing. I was agast what a waste.....I never do this as I love the puddle effects you get..... I stamped over the bare part of the paper with a floral outline stamp....from Papermania....got it ages ago and hadn't used it much up until now. I then stamped an additional 3 flowers the same from another srcap piece as well as 3 other style of flowers and then cut these out. Rather than placing the flowers I kinda dropped them in place and then tweeked.....hoping to create a more natural look. There are no rude words on the text paper as its a childrens book about a Princess.....do I read Italian...no but the picture on the front was a giveaway...La Piccola Principessa....the little princess, I started to study Italian for a year at college and had every intention of learning more but soon found out if you speak to someone they think you're fluent and rabbit off........stick to ordering a cappucino and an ice cream much safer.
Anyway back to the card the text paper was distressed with 4 inks and then spritzes with gold perfect pearls.....well a gal has got to try other things as well....lol. The swirl stamp is from the same set of stamps and before the ink drieds I sprinkled gold embossing powder on it.......I love the effect that you get doing this as its kinda ages it, if that makes sense. To cut a long story short the ticket is from Tim Holtz, as is the memo pin.
Mojo Monday......sketch...bit of a late entry I know!!
Creative Beli......make a B/day card using something forgotten....well I def. forgot about these stamps but not anymore.
Thanks for taking a peek
