I am so excited to show you my card! I made the background for it and I used mica for the first time! Ok so let's take care of business first and then I can show you my card! :)
I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Inspiration Francaise-Eiffel Tower stamp from Hero Arts
Our Creative Corner: Make Your Own Background-inks and stamps
Moxie Fab World: Alphabet Stickers Challenge-Greeting on the card
So here's my card. I bought a new little easel to hold my cards. Yay! :) I guess I will figure out if I will crop it out but for now there it is. I also bought in that same little shopping trip some mica bits. They are from Stampendous and have 5 different colors. I have seen mica forever-but now I have some. So I applied glue to the edges of the black cardstock to get it to stick. I did this after I gold embossed the Eiffel Tower. Then I sprayed gold Pearls Mist onto it.
Here is my background. I love this background-so it must be one of the prettiest ones I have made. LOL! I used spiced marmalade and bronze distress stain and mustard seed and rusty hinge distress ink. I applied them to my mat and spritzed a little water. The result is just awesome! Then I stamped the script on top. But that wasn't enough. So after this picture I went back and added swirls and polka dots using stamps by Stephanie Barnard (I got them a loooong time ago at CKU).
Here's a close up of my card. The title is made from Making Memories sticker letters.
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...Bonsoir!
