Roses and diamonds. What more could a girl want?
The theme at the Sunday Stamper this week is diamonds, so after several false starts and lots of changing of mind about a colour theme I have made a card, though it's definitely hand delivery only as its a bit dimensional.
I've used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to lightly colour my card and then applied some more through a diamond stencil, The lines were a bit hard so I softened it all up by spraying with water and blotting with kitchen towel. Next I stamped some little diamonds going the other way from the Mini Muse stamp set. The sentiment is from the Stuff to Say set also by Tim.
Next I got out my BigShot and cut out some Tattered Pinecones and some leaves from the Autumn Gatherings strip die. I used paper from my Vintage Shabby paperstack.
The edges of everything are lightly inked with Vintage Photo, and I then curled my pink pinecones very loosly and just glued the base with hot glue, so they unfurled and looked like roses. The leaves are light green on the other side, and this is what I was going to use originally, but I liked the vintage dictionary better.
The card is finished off with some diamonds from Maya Road, and an Ideology bookplate.
Now I'm off to have a little wander around blogland as its raining and I'll just have to delay getting the lawn mower out today. Oh dear, what a shame!
