Confirmation Card

Well, my weekend's sample making had mixed results. One of my ideas just didn't work and I decided that I didn't like one of the other cards when I was about half way through it.  However I now have 7 cards made, so that's a good start.

I used the Sun Arch stencil with Alcohol Inks to create the look of a stained glass window on this card. I did this on heat resistant acetate so that I could heat emboss the rays on top. I used Jeweled Gold powder by Stampendous for this - it's a beautiful sparkly yellowy gold.

I traced around the arch and cut it out to create an aperture in my base card. My original idea was to place the acetate behind this so that you could see through it like a window. However as the colours I'd used were quite pale it just didn't look right.

So I had the idea of placing white card behind it with the design inked in black Archival.

I stuck the layers together and it looked much better as the colours were much stronger.

A matching bow and some gems finish it off.
