Simple Sunday

Happy Sunday,

Today's simple offering comes with an added extra, I have simply die cut the centre filigree sections form the Sue Wilson Innsbruck die in white hammered card.  This is then foam mounted over a CE Teal foundation card.

The added extra is the small panel at the end of the woven ribbon strip.  I have used the same technique as I did on Fridays card however I only stamped the image once onto shrink plastic and this time heated it in the oven which gives a nice flat finish.  I then coloured the reverse with oil pints to highlight the design.

The option today is to add the stamped 'tile' or not a simple card without a little more detailed with.  The choice is your.

  2. Lovely John. Must have a go at the tile effect-it look fantastic.
    Have a good Sunday.
    Have a good holiday Sam.
    Love Val x

  3. Eh up John
    Sorry, not keen on how you've done the ribbon. It reminds me of a belt. The painted tile on the other hand is lovely but needs to be shown off a bit more.
    Have a great day.

  4. Morning John,
    A clean classic card, would be suitable for all sorts of occasions and I can see in lots of colours. Love the little tile.

  5. Love the card-very Art Deco. I think the shrink plastic tile is lost on the card which seems a shame. Use it on another project maybe?


  6. Most inventive. Not sure what the out of focus pic was about though.

  7. Hi John,
    Clean and classy but I do think the pretty little tile looks a little bit lost.

    Love Sheila xx

  8. Hi John. Beautiful card, not too sure about the ribbon and I think the gorgeous tile is lost. Or is the effect different in the flesh? I think it is so hard to tell sometimes as we all know how different cards look in photos(and I don't men just yours, but everyones) I have got my shrink plastic out ready to have another go at colouring it, hadn't thought of using paints after shrinking it so thanks for that. Take care.

  9. Hi John, beautiful card, love the shrink plastic tile, and the hammered card looks great. Would have chosen a better ribbon I think but that's me, this ribbon looks quite masculine with a feminine tile!

    Love & Hugs

  10. Sorry, but just feel it doesn't all gell. Individual parts are lovely, but not together.
    Hate to be critical, but it's your own fault for setting such a high standard.

  14. Love it! Because of the beautiful simplicity of it all it could easily be used for a man's card In the flesh I think the little embellishment would "pop"
