Simply Saturday

Last but definitely not least of our Stampbord Wishing Well week, a stunning card made by Gay. I was really wondering how she would get away with Stampbord and Clean and Simple, but she did. 
Before I let Gay explain how she made her card, I wanted to say that we are stopping the challenges for a while. 
They will be back in September with.... well.. I can't tell you, but we are already working on 3 amazing months back stage... Can't wait to share that with you!! 
ok, today's sample ...

Gay says... 
I used Distress inks on the Stampbord and then Memento Tuxedo black for the Andy Skinner broken heart. 
When it was dry I scratched highlights in the Stampbord and used a black Copic around the edge of the pieces. I added the text sometimes because hearts do get broken 'Sometimes'.
The background, I drew the design on the card to resemble cracks in a broken window and stamped the Gothic text over this, I layered the fabric over because I liked the way the design showed through from behind. Then placed the Stampbord as if the heart was breaking and falling away.

On her gorgeous card, Gay used
Stampbord  three 2"x1" pieces
Distress inks: Barn door, Dusty concord and Broken china.
Black Copic pen to do the edges of the Stampbord.

Thank you Gay, this is gorgeous.

See you next week with more fabulous projects.
