Hello and thanks for stopping along on the WMS blog hop ! If you stumbled upon my blog, please make sure to start at the beginning (with a big mug of tea!) over at Claires blog http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/2010/02/welcome-to-our-first-blog-hop.html
Today's card started off with the beautiful Cross stamp from Celtic Heritage. I stamped it in Paris Dusk memento ink - LOVE that colour !! If anyone knows where I can find the perfect blue-purple paper to match that ink let me know!
I also love to stamp intricate images like this in memento so I can colour - I used BV00 and BV02 for colouring in the detail on the stamp. Made a little frame for the cross to pop out of (got that straight from Claire's bog) with stamps from Very Vintage labels #1, and used the same stamp set for the scrolly background. Tied some organza and satin ribbon behind the cross (I'm hoarding this ribbon like no tomorrow, you should have seen how long it took me to tie this bow as I cut the organza too short, but refused to cut another piece I was determined to make it work !!) Popped out an initial on the bottom..this is a baptism card.
As for the cross, I smooshed it in versamark and embossed it in SU iridescent ice embossing powder, then added a dollop of glitter with some Crystal Effects...LOVE the sparkle !!
