Isn't it typical? I went to take photos for today's post earlier on while there was plenty of natural light and discovered my camera battery was dead. Now that the battery is charged, of course it is dark and dreary, cold and raining. Hmmmph!
Anywho, today's card is one I don't think I'll ever be able to give away because I love it so much! It's an elegant little number in black and vanilla and it goes something like this:
In the background is a new stamp from the 2011-2012 catalogue called Parlour Prints. I have stamped it with very vanilla craft ink and clear embossed it for a subtle but gorgeous background to my dramatic flower panel. The flower and stem are also stamped with (black) craft ink and clear embossed and I coloured the flower with my aquapainter and vanilla ink to give it a bit more richness.
The very vanilla cardstock isn't quite strong enough to hold all these layers, so I attached my vanilla to a basic black base but covered the front completely - so the card appears to be vanilla!
Here's a close up so you can see Parlour Prints a bit better:
GORJAMILICIOUS!!! I'll be sharing this little beauty with some stamping buddies when we have our play day next week and I know Rob will be drooling until then! LOL
Thanks for calling in.
