Cameo and paper ruffle
Monday, September 26, 2011
Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a great day Saturday teaching some lovely ladies card making techniques at a workshop at The Crafty Alley Shop in Killarney. I showed them the paper ruffle technique and how to make some flower embellishments. They did a great job! Ok, I thought I'd just share this card with you, it is technically a 'reject'! but that's ok because I had two other cards accepted for that submission! I did like this one though but I guess you never know which one they'll pick! (if any!)
Here I used Ovals - Classic Frames by Waltzingmouse Stamps and Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large. The silhouette from Cameo Creations is stamped in Coffee Archival ink and I distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The background paper and ruffle I stamped using one of the motif stamps from Ovals -Classic Frames in VersaMagic Tea Leaves.
The sentiment is from Frame-it by Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped again in Coffee ink onto a Spellbinders Double Ended Tag. See previous post for paper ruffle tutorial.
The green paper I die-cut with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen is from the Margarita Collection by American Crafts, I embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The green patterned paper I used to cover the base is from the same collection. Lots to do this week, better make a start! Enjoy your week!
