Jill here and this week I'm going a little racy in lace...
...using the beautiful Lace background from My Favourite Things mixed up with a few other delightful pieces.
I'm a background fiend, I love em'. I see them, I fall for them, and I am absolutely powerless against snapping them up and, boy oh boy, this divine beauty from My Favourite Things was no exception, it absolutely knocked my socks off, just stunning.
I wanted to create a really luxurious card, over the top and bursting with different textures and materials, so that's what I was aiming for here.
I started by stamping out the Lace background and heat embossing in white. I then made a mask from a heart die and ink blended through it onto my background in gorgeous deep purples, lightening up towards the middle. Once I was happy with my blend, I added a few flicks of gold paint to add another layer of luxury. I then cut the awesome For You from Lawn Fawn a few times and glued them together to create a nice big substantial sentiment. I then smooshed my sentiment in Versamark ink and covered in gold sparkle embossing powder, repeating this a few times to make it very thick and molten metal like. I then finished with another couple of layers of clear embossing powder to give it a final finishing touch and I'm glad I did as it really gave then sentiment a lovely look.
At this point I was already happy with how my card looked but like I said, I wanted this card to be over the top luxurious so wanted to add another element and another texture so I cut myself a couple of the Stitched Butterflies form Lil Inkers Design in vellum and layered them up one on top of the other and tied them together with some gold thread leaving a long tail for a further flutter of fancy :)
I finished with a scattering of sequins and by mounting my piece onto a dark grey card base.
I really hope you like it.
As always, everything I used is linked below.
See you next week.
