It's the last day of November
Such a quick month
Our theme this week is Red and Gold
and Jane Castle is here today
with a beautiful card:
I started this card with a piece of 300gsm white card which was coloured with Fresco Chalk paints in Plum, Very Berry and Claret. Once these were completely dry I added some Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick with a blending tool.
Next I stamped the leaves from PaperArtsy EDY12
and the trellis from Jofy 12 in Fired Brick and whilst wet
lightly brushed over some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder in Antique Red.
Once trimmed to size the centre was then die cut
with a Spellbinders die and embossed.
The top was stamped with ‘How Does Your Garden Grow’
from ELB03 and heat embossed using gold embossing powder.
The bottom section was then stamped with the flowers from Jofy 12
in versaMark ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.
Next I made the centre piece for the aperture,
for this I used some Core’dinations sand it, tear it in dark burgundy
and lightly sanded before stamping with a text stamp
in Brilliance Crimson Copper ink and also
brushing with the mica powder.
The honeycomb was cut from gold card
using a Tim Holtz Thinlits die.
The lace was coloured with Distress Stain in Antique Bronze
and attached to the back of the aperture with double sided tape,
adding the pleats in as it was secured.
The flower came from a Tando Grab Bag
This was coloured with the Antique Bronze Distress Stain
and the texture on the petals came from liberally applying
Distress Stain through the sponge top.
The centre was decorated by applying Grunge Paste
through the stencil, then when dry
adding some Treasure Gold in Ruby.
The edges of the petals were hi-lighted with Aged Mahogany ink
The swirl was cut from some darker gold card
using a Crafty Individuals die.
This was then cut into 2 and stuck behind
the aperture to secure
The dragonfly brad was coloured with Renaissance Treasure Gold.
A lovely card with lots of texture
Thank you Jane
Well I'm off to make some cards
see you all again tomorrow
