This is the card that I have made for my sisters' birthday at the weekend, she doesn't read my blog so I am safe to show it to you today. I started by stamping this rather lovely stamp from Just Rite Stamps onto white card with Memento London Fog ink. I then coloured it with mainly Coloursoft pencils blending with Sansoda and a paper stump. For the pink flowers I used two water colour pencils and blended with a water brush. I also went over the scroll work with a Sakura silver sparkle pen. I trimmed close to the image and found a snippet of gunmetal mirri card to mount it on. When I first got this card in a mixed pack of metallics I wasn't sure about it, ( it is quite a dark silvery colour ), but it has been very useful when a contrast matting is required but with the nice shine of metallic. Alas it is all gone now as this was the last bit and I just had enough to die cut the greeting with a Britania die. Having fixed the image to the mat I wrapped some yellow satin edged organza ribbon around it an fastened it at the back and then tied a bow onto the front. I cut a piece of thin yellow card to fit the front of a 5" x 7" card blank and trimmed the bottom edge with a Fiskars border punch and used a scoring board to emboss a line across. When all was fixed together I glued the greeting in place.
