Bloghop for the New Mini Catalogue

Hi ya, and a warm welcome to my blog. If you're following the ILWS blog hop then you will have come from the lovely Beckie http://www.bextiesandstickytape.blogspot.com/ , and here is my project;

I felt that the flower stamp in the Marry Me set had an art deco style to it, which gave the inspiration for the card. I coloured the stamp in with markers and used to decorate the white panel using first and second generation stamping to give dimension. The black background was stamped with versamark using the tops of the flowers and embossed with clear powder and I daubed around the white panel with rich razzleberry ink to soften the edges. I used a torn strip (still find it so hard to tear such lovely new paper!!) to accent the side of the card.

Cardstock - basic black, rich razzleberry and whisper white

Ink - basic black and versamark

Markers - Rich razzleberry and always artichoke

DSP - Pocket full of posies

Stamp sets - Marry me and Create a cupcake

Accessories - Sponge daubers, snail, grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals and clear embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my project (apologies for the rubbish photo!) and the blog hop continues with the lovely Julie http://www.the-crafty-bug.blogspot.com/
