Crickey , what a nightmare I had trying to get a decent picture of this card this afternoon!
Still not sure I've managed it but anyhow...
I made this yesterday for my husband for Crimbo. The stamp is a clear one from a pack by Habico which I fell in love with 2 years ago in rubber when they were going for silly money on ebay. I'm not sure but I don't think Habico done the original (???) . By the time I managed to find this set at a more realistic price, it was too late to use it and then last year I forgot about it (Shame on me) so this is it's first outing into the big wide world!! This card is very loosely based on the tag on the front of last months Craft Stamper magazine, I decided it would be good for me to do something challenging...Halfway through I began to think I was mad but after another cup of tea I got there and I'm pleased with how it turned out:
Hope you can see this!!
The image was heat embossed with silver embossing powder and then inked over with distress ink. The kraft coloured corrugated card is from some packaging. It was dry brushed with white acrylic paint and then the edges were inked and torn. The pale blue paper was dry embossed through the cuttlebug using a papermania folder and then dry brushed with paint, followed by tearing and inking the edges. Then added a couple of lines of stitching to add interest.
Mounted onto a piece of very precious Basic Grey Blitzen paper which I have been hoarding and added a ribbon knot and charm to the bottom. The tag at the top says Believe and has been inked over with a promarker because it was a bit too shiny!!
