I'm afraid that today's card is another the doesn't photo well! IN real life the centre panel of this one looks like a baked clay tile and does have a lovely shine however in all the pictures I took (I took quite a lot of this one) looked quite dull.
I started by stamping the Dandelion meadow stamp to die for form Creative Expressions in black archival ink. I then cut it out with the matching die from the Sue Wilson Austrian Collection Innsbruck die and rubbed the ice cut piece all over with perfect medium. Next I added a heap of clear embossing powder and heated the piece from underneath. I repeated this twice more to build up a thick enamel layer, making a glazed tile effect.
I then made up the card to hold this piece starting with the largest die from the Innsbruck collection however I didn't cut the die I simply embossed it. I shaded the piece using tea dye distress ink to bring out the embossed design.
To make the card base I embossed some khaki foundation card with the creative Expressions checker board pinpoint embossing folder and layers it with chocolate card in 2 layers. I made the front panel by inking through the that special touch mask, counterpane, and adding this to another piece of the chocolate.
Finally I added a strip of brown seem binding balanced with a messy bow, a pearl dazzler and a couple of matching hatpins.
