When we moved here were thought it would be the usual 2 year posting but 7 years later we're still here! This means we've missed out on 3 moving clear-outs. I now know that our moving date will be around May 2017 so I'm starting to think about how much stuff we've accumulated here. This year I want to go through every drawer and cupboard and my craft room clear-out is just the start of that.
Anyway, back to cards. I thought I'd blog this one today. It uses the same stencil as my last card but has a very different look - this time I used copper embossing powder for the frame. I hope you can see it but it's a nightmare to photograph.
I didn't want to get any stray Versamark ink through the oval centre so I taped it in place. I could then press the pad through the stencil without having to be careful.
Once I had the copper frame done I started work on the central panel, inking in the vase and oval....
............before adding the grasses.
I just wanted three of this one so I masked off one before I inked it again. Don't forget to remove the tape before you stamp!!!!!!!!
To finish it off I stamped and embossed part of one of the other grass stamps on the vase.
