You Are Loved

 Good morning all!  I have spent all weekend and the last few days getting everything ready for our upcoming Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at the Alexandra Palace in London.  I am so looking forward to meeting some of my blog followers there so please stop by and say hi so I may put a face with the names that I see please.  I will be on my own stand called Rubbernecker which is right inside the door just to your right as you enter.  I will be demoing all weekend with my clear micro beads as I was able to get a small shipment in time for the show.  Now for todays post, I just loved the way this card came out but it was a total experiment!  I wanted the flowers to look like porcelain and I usually will dip them in ultra thick embossing powder to achieve that sort of look, but I didn't have any with me while I was staying at my Moms.  I decided to experiment with clear crystal lacquer to see if I could get them to look similar.  I made my flowers with the bitty blossoms die and dripped crystal lacquer on them.  It got a bit thick by the time I had coated the first flower so I turned it upside down to drip the excess off onto the second flower (no waste).  I let them dry overnight and I was pleasantly surprised with the results in the morning!  My close up pic doesn' t do any real justice but I think it was a suitable alternative to the ultra thick technique.
I cut the layered elegant swirl die twice so I had a cut out decorative circle for my focal element.  I used the extra scalloped die piece to cut a matching black mat to mount behind it and help accent it.  I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out with the square swatch die and mounted it in a diamond orientation using a slightly larger one cut in black as a mat.  I did a slight inking with antique linen to highlight the phrase.  I added some guipur lace in black next to my striped grosgrain ribbon and bow on the side of the card.  I also used a few of the stunning swirl die underneath my flowers and leaves.  I finished the card with some piercing all the way around the edge and a mat of black for balance.  What do you think of this monochromatic floral card, song or no song for you?  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, the card is singing a song of inspiration. Love the flower idea, colours look stunning, don't know what it is, but black always tends to look very sophisticated. Thanks for the ideas, as I have time off this week, will give it a go (after I have tidied my very untidy craft room). Bx

Hi Sue
Shame Alli Palli wasn't at the end of April, as i am down south then grrrrrr. Bet the beads don't last very long. I can hear the harmonizing choir again (never mind a song lol).You always seem to get the pattern just right for it not to take attention away from the important things on your cards. Richness and opulence on this card. Cracking card.Well done Sue.

Christine Hussey said...

Hi Sue, another great song and a definite number one hit, just stunning! Why do my flowers never look like yours, will keep practicing. Sue, would love to know which/what pricking tool you use for the decorative edge. I have a one needle pergamano tool (too small) and a pokey tool (too big to go through the holes of TH ruler) so cannot get the same effect. I too would love to meet you one day (top of my wish list). Good luck at Alley Pally. Hugs Christine H x

Hey Sue

Love this card, the colours are great.

I wish I was able to make it to London for your show, it would be so good to meet you in person and see some live demos.

I really hope it all goes well for you :)
