Weekly-Favorite

Congrats to Gloria (GloriousGreetings) , the Featured Stamper today at Splitcoast.  I picked a couple that I want to case and this is the first one. I chose her Heartfelt Sympathy for this one. I kept the brayered background, silhouette images and big main panel, but I changed the colors, the images and added another layer.

All images, embossing powder, adhesives and glitters are from Sparkle N Sprinkle. After doing a brayered bg on a 1/4 sheet of white glossy c/s, I used the static pad and stamped this great Art Deco image in the center of the panel  w/ black pigment ink and embossed it w/ black ep. Sometimes I’m asked why I don’t use clear ep w/ the black ink or black ep w/ a clear ink. Almost exclusively, I use an ink very close to the color of the ep I want to use because it gives me a much deeper color. It also hides any flaws like when a tiny portion doesn’t get the ep. I stamped the lady portion of the image again on a scrap of  matte white c/s using black permanent ink. On this image, I used markers to color her, cut her out and applied glue and black glitter to her dress. Then I attached her to the base image w/ a little card board under her to give her just a little lift.

I used a craft knife to cut the base image along the straight sides because I used the rest of the bg for my big layer. Some highlights were added w/ a white gel pen and  lavender and black layers were added underneath before attaching it over the main bg. Another black layer was added then everything was attached to a 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) white card. I used a Cuttlebug ornamental border die to cut the black scroll element, brushed glue over it and coated it w/ black glitter before attaching it below the image. I made 3 faux brads and coated them w/ glitter as well.  If you’d like to see just how I make these nice rounded brads, I just finished a new Faux Brad Tutorial. I’d love for you to check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always read and much appreciated!
