Hope you're having a good week. We've been having a great time at Whimsy getting the chance to share all the new rubber stamps and dies with you! The blog hop is ending at Noon ET today, so if you haven't hopped and would like to, you can start the hop HERE.
Today I have a card to share, similar to one that I saw on Beate Johns blog and decided to CASE the idea from. Beate's card was simply stunning! I loved her white with black and then coloring the image in grays so I needed to give it a shot. Beate used some different framing on her image which I think makes her card even more beautiful. But I didn't have those shapes and I honestly can't for the life of me get the embossing down when using nesties. But it was fun to color in a different sort of style with this card. And this is an A2 sized card which I haven't made in FOREVER! lol
Whimsy Stamps. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copics in C1,2,3,4,5 and 100. I cut the image with Nesties and then stitched the edges (pretty poorly, actually). The other paper edges were all stitched on the sewing machine as well. The white layer was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug folder Tapestry. I've decorated with ribbon, pearls and sticky gems on the corners. The lacy edging was created with Whimsy's new "Double Scallop Border Die" now available to purchase!
This card fits the challenges at:
