A close shave?...
Today's card is anther using the new stamps to die for and the shaving foam technique which quite a few of my blog family asked to see in close up!
For more details on the shaving foam technique then click HERE for a pictorial tutorial on Sue Wilson's Particraft blog. For this project I used the garden meadow set of Acrylic Drawing inks, using these you get a softer colour look and the shaving foam does not get muddy as it can with alcohol ink.
For the stamped element I used the Heritage Flourish stamp to die for from the new range. I stamped this in black archival ink then heat embossed it with clear detail embossing powder. I cut this out with the matching Hamilton die designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.
Next I cut another of the Hamilton dies in black card, cut this in 2, and mounted this behind the stamped image to give a shadow.
Finally I inked the trailing Ivy die with a brayer and archival jet black ink to make a letter pressed die cut of the ivy. I cut this out and added it around the main image along with a bow made of black and jute twine finished with a small black dazzler.
