Its back to my design team spot for Creative expressions and there have been a few changes on the blog as we have now launched a challenge with prizes. Click HERE to see the challenge and to enter. It would be great to see you enter your cards and this months theme is Easter so get your egg shapes out and give it a go. It';s a great way to win a prize and also showcase your work to Creative Expressions!
Back to today and I thought i could, kinda, get into the Easter theme by using the main element from the scribble rose elements stamp set as its a little egg shaped (can I hear clutching at straws here!)
I have teamed this up with the brand new paper pack from Couture Creations Vintage rose garden. Now as you know I am a lover of paper and this set is just stunning!
I allowed the paper to make all the backing for what is a simple stamping project. I stamped the central element form the stamp set using perfect medium onto milk foundation card and embossed it with Detail gold embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer. I then repeated the process using the rose striplet stamp, hand cut them out and inked around the edges using Victorian Velvet distress ink (a one of the new smoothies)
I foam mounted the pieces and added a satin edged bow, a dazzler setting with a pearl embellishment in the centre (secured with cosmic pearl PVA) and a couple of pearl sprays to finish.
It would be great to see your cards up on the CE Challenge and you never know maybe win a prize!
