Every month our team, the “Inkaholics” have a get together where we have time to talk business and then time to play afterwards! As part of our get together we do card swaps which is great as we come away with several different ideas that could be used as make and takes for our home workshops.
I forgot to take a picture of my swap but I have a very similar one to show you, the only difference being the two roses on either side were replaced with leaves.
The rose buds were created using the new “Two-step Bird” punch from the Mini. This is the “wing” punched out three times then adhered to look like a rose bud (or tulip if you added a straight stem). I used the new “Frost White” Shimmer Paint, which I have to say is just gorgeous, to add a glimmer to the rose buds and inked around the edges using a dauber with Rose Red ink. To get a better view of the lovely background on the Pretty in Pink layer, click on the photo to enlarge the image. This is the new jumbo wheel called “Very Vintage” and I used the Versa Mark stamp to gived a subtle effect.
The greeting is the new “Elegant Thank You” stamp from the “a la carte” stamp range, this is a group of stamps that are sold as single stamps which is great. I punched out three circles using the 1/4″ Circle Punch and added Crystal Effects to make them shine.
