Here's the card I was trying to finish - had the image colored (with Chromatix markers), but couldn't get it diecut, matted & on a card in time for DD's anniversary. So one for the stash. I deliberately left off a sentiment - which will go in the lower right corner.
Just at the moment I can't locate this cling stamp - purchased at my delightful day at Betty's Scrapbook Room. I can't remember if it is a Penny Black or Hero Arts. I stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with Ranger Seafoam white. Since there was a lot of embossing, I didn't want to ruin copic marker nibs, so I used Chromatix markers (they are cheaper!). I haven't done a lot with these markers, and found that for me, they didn't blend as well as the Copics. However, once the piece dried, I was ok with the look. I think next time, I'll try this with just stamping in Memento, coloring with copics. The stamp is probably buried under something, and when I find it, I'll edit this post as to the company name.
- Memory Box Sonora Rose diecut using snippets on the pile, and added some shading with copics.
- diecut focal image with S/Binders Adorning Square. Used same die to faux cut a mat in blue pearly paper - (another snippet), sponged edges of both pieces with DI Stormy Sky, China Blue.*(sorry should read Broken China)
- green textured Bazzill cardbase
More jewels to enjoy:
Tomorrow, I'll try to show some of the Mt. Vernon pictures & then go back to the jewelry. I do hope you're enjoying this little pictorial trip through the jewel collection. It was fascinating to see these beautiful jewels and read the history.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, and thanks for joining me this afternoon. Hugs.
