Lots of Love

January 23, 2009

Now this card I have made for someone special, and have managed to use 3 challenges to complete it. Firstly I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and it was a wonderful sketch to work with. The theme on Charisma Cardz is ‘Love’, and the ABC challenge this week is to have an ‘X’ somewhere on your card. I also had a try at a new technique that i had not tried before and had seen somewhere in blogland while blog hopping but not sure who’s blog it was because i closed the window before taking note, so I appologise If you are reading this and I have not given you the acknowledgement.

The Technique is ebmossing velvet and wow does it give a fantastic finish. I was lucky enough to find some black velvety material in my scraps box so tried it out and it works wonderful. I used the stamp free with papercraft inspirations. The technique was :
stamp right way up. lay velvet top side down on the stamp. Spritz with water to wet the velvet, then hold an iron on cotton setting onto the stamp and velvet for 10-20 seconds or until the velvet is dry.

I will definitely be trying this technique again and am now going to search for scraps of velvet in all the charity shops so that i can do more of it
