Hello all, I’m running a few days behind here, but thought I would share my latest showcase piece for the Sarah Hurley 365 Blog. This time I decided to do a lovely bright and cheery card, something to brighten up these dark, dull horrible days.
I restricted my self to use two sets of stamps, the Be Amazing Girl Stamps and the Hexagon Background Stamp. I was very brave and looked out the embossing powders(anyone who knows me, knows I am not a messy crafter). I used Versa Mark ink and inked up the background stamp, covered it with black embossing powder and set to work with the heat gun. I was really impressed with the finished effect and repeated it to give me a spare bit so I could make her dress match.
I stamped the Girl, coloured her face with promarkers, and fussy cut her out. I popped the wee honeycomb dress on her to match up with the background paper. As she has a beehive hairdo I just popped some wee sequins on her up do.
For some extra texture I used an embossing folder on black kraft core paper.
The sentiment is from the stamp set and I just masked the stamp off to get an extra e…how brave was I? lol
