Miss You/ Sneak Peek

 Morning all!  Today's card showcases one of the backgrounds in the shows.  I used the Dotted Fronds stamp by JustRite, which is another design from the talented Becca Feeken.  You can find her gorgeous work on her blog (AmazingPaperGrace.com)
 and stamped it on blush card using a clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed it with white powder.  Using some Victorian Velvet distress ink, I went over the background a bit to help pop the white embossing a bit.  I used the new Majestic Labels 25 die to cut an aperture.  I added mounting foam and centred it over my stamped background.  I stamped my sentiment on coconut white card using the Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I cut it out with Vintage labels three and inked it lightly while still in the die.  I wanted to put a pretty filigree piece behind it so I cut two of the fancy tags two die and crossed them behind my sentiment.  Using some of our new vintage felt in dusty rose, I cut several spiral three flowers.  I cut a bit off the ends on two of them to make them smaller and added flatback pearls to all three.  I seated my flowers around my sentiment with a piece of white tulle.   I added a few leaves cut from the Bitty Blossoms set too. I matted the entire piece with a piece of dusty rose card from my stash before adding double white pierced mats to finish the card.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 8" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Another beautiful card Sue. Welcome back.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
A very elegant gift today. Unfortunately on my laptop the colouring seems to have faded and all I can see is very very pale natural colour for the background which looks beautiful and the flowers are a faded brown.
I can imagine that in the correct colours it looks very gentle and very very elegant.
I am ready for tomorrow - for the first time I will be able to record the shows so I will be able to watch Sue Wilson in action whenever I want!!!!

Hi Sue. A stunning card, again. It is so beautiful. Love it all. (I don't have mauve flowers either on my screen.)I think this range of stamps and dies are some of the best yet!
