Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 48 - Blue for You


Blue for You

and I have to admit, I got a bit carried away, and ended up making three cards :-D  One worked out better than I'd hoped, one was pretty much what I was aiming for and the third, well it didn't turn out exactly as planned, and I'm not sure if it will survive as it is or get broken down and fiddled with!  I'll post it when I'm happer with it!!

Anyway, this might be a long one, so you can either grab yourself a cuppa and have a read, or have a quick peek at the pictures... I won't be offended !!

This is the card I am most pleased with, as it's very different from my normal style, so was quite a stretch for me, but I think I should try this more often!!.  I embossed a couple of images with clear embossing powder, and then got busy with some distress inks, stamped the chandelier and the sentiment, masked them then stamped the script stamp over the top in distress inks,  It didn't stamp prefectly as I was stamping on Bazzill and it's only one of the great value Prima stamps which don't seem to work that well with distress inks.  Normally I would have thought I'd wrecked the card, but I think it adds to the overall

The image is coloured with copics and theres a touch of sparkle with glamour dust on her gloves, bow and hem.  I'd got some bias binding from a haberdashery store recently and was itching to try it out.  The only think I might do differently would be to iron the creases out, but I kinda only thought of that after the card was assembled... duh!!  I also really like tag shaped cards, I just have't done one in AGES!!

Supplies: Image - Dancer 2 Scrapbook Sisters; Prima Scroll, Flower, Sentiment and Script stamps; Chandelier stamp - magazine freebie
Inks etc- Stone Grey Stazon; Antique Linen, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Inks; Versamark: Clear embossing Powder; Glamour Dust
Ribbon etc - Prima Lace, Blue Grosgrain, Brown Bias Binding

I'd like to enter my card into these challenges please

My second card is the one that turned out pretty much as I'd hoped, and after all the stamping, inking and embossing of the first card I kept it CAS, layering the image on a blue sqaure - handcut I might add, I don't own any square nesties!! 

I want my legs to look like these!!  Actually I want the shoes too :-D

Supplies - Blue Bazzill, Scalloped edged card blank; He Loves Me Digi , Scrapbook Sisters; Woodware Sentiment, Copics, Glamour Dust, Ribbon
