Bright And Shiny!!!

Today I am sharing a card made with some of the inky backgrounds I was playing with the other day.
I used the StazOn and Isopropyl Alchol technique to colour some white gloss card. The red background is a mixture of Cherry Pink and Black Cherry which I then stamped over with a Stamps Happen harlequin background stamp.
After cutting around the image it was wrapped with gold thread and embellished with Woodware gold nail heads.
The musician image (Judikins) was stamped onto three different coloured backgrounds of the same StazOn technique then cut and pieced. He is layered onto an experimental background of pigment ink with Isopropyl Alcohol.
For the card blank I stamped the Crafty Individuals flourish stamp using alabaster chalk ink and once it was dry I went over it with a soft gold metallic crayon.
I don't think this image is actually a harlequin but I just like the way the word looked stamped in the tiny peg stamp alphabet.

Back to work tomorrow.......that came round I am off to tidy up my pit of a workroom before I sort out my clothes and bag ready.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. This is lovely Sheila. I especially like the diamond background and winding the gold thread round is an ace idea. Love it!
