Welcome! It's been a few days, hasn't it? I've been enjoying some family time, but today I knew I need to to get back in the saddle and get a few things done. I needed a card for a friend who is very ill. Pink always helps, right? For a focal image, I chose JustRite's Antique Valentine Tags One set, cut with one of the Antique Tags One custom dies. I used a Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small die template to cut the sentiment, then matted the focal image with first a Labels Fourteen mat, and behind that a Labels Twenty Five mat.
For the lacey layer beneath the focal image, I used a JustRite Lace Background stamp, stamped on heavy vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed with vanilla embossing powder. (My vanilla embossing powder is really old; I don't know who sells it now.) I used a Copic R21 to shade the pink ribbon on the flourish stamp. and a Copic R24 to tint some white self-adhesive pearls to match the rest of the pink. I also dyed white seam binding with Copic R21 and R81 inks; the R21 was a little too warm, so I added some R81 to cool of the color a bit for a good match. Patterned papers are from a My Mind's Eye Market Street Lost and Found 6" x 6" pad. That's it for today--thanks for visiting!
