Ooooooh those girls at Daring cardmakers are in sooooooo much trouble. The work I was supposed to do tonight went right out the window when I saw the 'Little Extra' dare. Just had to have a go at it as a couple of ideas popped into my head.
The first card is totally inspired by Godelieve http://www.stampingmathilda.blogspot.com/
who does the most awesome work stamping in white onto vellum. It's something I have never done because I don't actually like the feel of vellum....kind of a finger nails down a chalk board thing with me....lol!!! Anyway, I used the new Flourish set from TandaStamps and stamped and embossed the flourishes using Versamark and white embossing powder onto the black card. I then did the same onto a piece of vellum and cut out the flowers which were then attached with a spot of Glossy Accents and decorated with a tiny crystal.
Using a black Stazon pad I stamped the image once more onto vellum and cut out the flowers attaching them again with Glossy Accents and decorating with a crystal. The dots and writing are done by hand.
The second card..........well I don't know where that came from I really don't.....lol!!!
I have this huge pile of nasty pink card which looked lovely in the bright lights of the Paper Mill outlet..........didn't look so nice in the daylight though. So I thought I'd see if I could use a couple of pieces up and the rest they say is history......more like a mystery if you ask me.
It's all dye ink stamping using the spiders web from the new Tandastamps Set of Backgrounds. Grunged over with a black Stazon pad adding more to the edges to give a bit of definition.
The wording is done with my Dymo and set out onto a spare piece of card. I outlined it in black pen and then cut it out as a whole piece.
I feel so naughty because I spent all evening doing this..........but I didn't half enjoy it.
Apologies to anyone who has sent me an e mail. I can't access my mail box. It keeps telling me that I am not connected to the internet......which I most obviously am. I've tried everything I know to get into it and no joy so will have to wait for DD to have a look tomorrow.
Oh blimey it's half past two.........where on earth did the time go? Best go get some shuteye.
