This week's challenge over at Bah Humbug is "Elegance".
Although I have already used the "Peace" stamp from Clarity Stamps I hadn't had a chance to use the Noel Stamp I got in the same order. So - elegance - I suppose it is up to each person to decide what is elegant to them but I hope I have achieved it in this card. I started off stamping the word with Versamark onto white card and embossing in silver. From a sheet of handmade paper in my stash I then cut out four ovals that would fit inside the O of Noel. I then folded them in half and stuck each half to the next one to make a sort of paper bauble effect. This was then stuck on top of the letter.
The image was then inked in silver and mounted onto silver mirri with each edge notched with a SU punch. The remainder of the handmade paper was matted onto silver mirri and placed on a square white card blank. A strip of silver ribbon was placed near the bottom of the card with a white organza bow placed on top. With some scraps of the handmade paper I punched out some flower shapes which I used with some Prima flowers. Finishing touches were some gems.
Thanks for stopping by.
