Using scraps and old stuff!
My card was made using an old brass stencil that I've had for ages and scraps of card that were all lying on my desktop.
I got out my little lightbox to emboss the stencil. I've hardly used it since I got my Cuttlebug. After embossing I kept the stencil in place and coloured the raised areas with Distress ink then added a little chalk to the cup.
I coloured round the outside circle with Distress ink too but it looked rather pale and uninteresting so I replaced the stencil and drew round the raised design with a fine black Micron pen and added the dots round the flower centres.
I cut the piece of pink card, which was already embossed, to size, and mounted onto a scrap of black card then mounted the image onto another scrap of black which already had the fancy edge and trimmed it down to size. I added the gems for sparkle and rounded the top corner of the card.
I would like to enter this card into the Challenge on That's Crafty Challenge blog. and the
613 Avenue Challenge Blog.
