Long time, no see. I've been a very bad blogger. After being away from my craft room for a few weeks because of holidays and various other general busyness, I then discovered that my mojo had flow away and left me. However, I had a card to make for a friend, and decided to use a fab card sketch site called Sweet Stop Sketches I have recently discovered, to get me back in the swing of things.
I had a play earlier in the week with this beautiful Stampendous ranunculus stamp, colouring it with Artquest mica paints, distressing with Distress ink, and over stamping the image again then heat embossing with gold (as the mica paints are fairly thick and covered the detail of the original stamping). Having made this rectangular focal point. I then needed to find a way to display it on a card, and here's where Sweet Stop Sketches came in. I was quickly able to find an older sketch for my card, which uses a square card-my favourite shape-as a base.
The ribbon is seam binding, dyed with Distress ink to match the image.
