Good evening bloggers it has been a while since my last post, but yesterday was my sister Kate's birthday and here is the card that I made for her. I used part of a Chocolate Baroque border stamp for the image. The stamp is almost 6" wide but I used this part of it to make an ATC recently and I liked the result so much and enjoyed colouring it too, that I decided to use it again for this card. I stamped onto a snippet of ivory card with black Memento ink and coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils, using a paper stump, and Sansodor to blend the colours. The word Autumn is an Inkylicious stamp. The base card is an ivory 15cm square and I cut a piece of pearlised purple card to cover the front leaving just a narrow edge. The faded leafy background paper was in a bundle given to me by a friend and I think it is from a Hunkydory set. I cut this slightly smaller than the purple layer and stuck it in place. I inked the edge of the approximately ATC sized image with Milled Lavender and Tea Dye distress inks, and then cut a mat from a snippet of the purple card. After sticking the image in place I stamped the Chocolate Baroque birthday greeting below it and added three graduated lilac gems. The lovely orange and purple organza ribbon has been in my ribbon box for quite some time waiting for the right project and I felt this was it.
