Good evening to all my lovely followers and hello and welcome to Lavinia, I hope you have all had a great day crafting.
What a day it has been here very grey and chilly for most of the day so what better way to spend the time making a card with the Indigo Blue free stamps from Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine they are lush, and in between I had to do the mundane job of H.......k.
For this I just had to do a monochrome card as it was just perfect for the stamp I used.
1. 7x7 white card.
2. Indigo Blue stamps
3. stamped image with Versamark then heat embossed with Heat it Up Black Sparkle, layered it onto black card then white card and once more onto black.
4. Stamped border strip with flourish from same stamp set in Memento Ink.
5. Diecut the flower with Britannia medium flower die
6. Added ribbon and jem from stash
I would like to enter this into:-
