Another day, another card!
I have used lots of different techniques on this one.
Firstly I have embossed the background with a large dots papermania embossing folder, I didnt want anything too fancy as I wanted the ribbon and plaque to be the main focal point.
This house been mounted onto a lovely shade of lilac cardstock from stash.
I have used spellbinders labels for the plaques and finished the edge with a silver leaf pen, I have tried a few over the last few weeks but this is one of the brightest ones I have found, I particularly like the krylon 18ct gold one that is fantastic and is not dull at all I cant recommend these enough!!
The ribbon was from my stash which is the 38mm width, this was a little fiddly but I think it has turned out fine.
The roses were made with the 5 petal punch, which were cut and layered, then finally finished with glamour dust and edged with a lilac cats eyes pigment pad.
The Rose leaves were with the Xcut cut and emboss range.
The flourishes were of course marianne's her dies are superb and when cut tend to look like metal I really am liking these at the moment.
I have to mention the diamontes, I get this from ebay and will only ever buy these from her! I have had lots in the past but some are either too big or quite dull, hers are full of colour and so shiny they actually do look like diamontes
If you would like any details of where I purchase my stash from please do drop me a email.
Well thats it from me for today, Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
