My First 2015 Thank You!

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Wow, I can't believe it has taken me until January 4th to post a card in 2015.  I've been trying to organize my stamp room for a few days and every time I took a break to do some creating I wasn't feeling particularly crafty.  So I decided to just take a break and get all inky when the mood struck.

Well, the mood has struck and ordered me to combine the sketch from As You See It with the inspiration photo at Curtain Call.




I'm not entirely sure it is visible in the photo but I used a chevron stencil to lay down some embossing paste before I layered my embossed-flower-on-vellum over it.  I stamped the sentiment in PTI's Smokey Shadow which has a wonderful taupe look to it when dry so it fit the tone of the inspiration photo I think.

I'm looking forward to a crafty 2015 and I hope you are too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Hennah Elements, Label Love (Altenew)
Paper:  Classic White (Flourishes); Vellum (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink); Distress Embossing Ink (Ranger)
Accessories:  Chevron Pattern stencil (Simon Says Stamp); white embossing paste (Dreamweaver);  silver cord,  gold cord (SU); metalllic enamel dots (My Mind's Eye); gold embossing powder

Thanks for playing along with Curtain Call!!! I love your metallics on all of that clean white! And I agree with your view on Smokey Shadow - I use it very regularly when black just seems too harsh.
