Since I'm not working today I'm sewing and cardmaking in the warm. I can't tell you how excited I am about my set of Leanne Ellis stamps from Sugar Nellie! They are lovely! This is the second card I've finished with them since they came on Wednesday. This one has a slightly rosier complexion and I think she looks a little St Trinian's - the Ronald Searle drawings not the films. Isn't it the most gorgeous image?
Image stamped onto Glimmer Misted paper and onto white glossy paper. Coloured with Copics, head cut out from white paper and glued onto the background, hearts cut out, mounted onto foam pads to give dimension. I've used thin peel-off strips for the heart strings. All the red hearts and flowers have Glossy Accents on them and they have a lovely sheen to them.
The embossed sentiment is Elusive images, yes the Ds are meant to be distressed, it wasn't an accident with the embossing powder;) However the ribbon across the card under the image does cover up a slip with the gold pen :). The navy card was trimmed with a postage edge blade, same as the last Sugar Nellie card, I like the effect now I've got it out of the box. I need to get into the habit of taking it out striaght away, it's really annoying to make a cut that should have been straight and find it wavy!
