My regular visitors will know that every wednesday I spotlight one of my projects on the Whimsical Ink Sorority (WIS) blog for Queen Kat Designs. I also like to show the project here on my blog too, that way my regular visitors and those who visit the WIS blog both get to see my projects each week.
QKD Store with a massive 40% off the price! How good is that? If you want to take a look and maybe slip her into your shopping cart here's the direct link.
I used a C6 cello bag to hold the chocolates and created a closure for the top with a piece of aqua coloured card which I punched along the bottom with a Martha Stewart border punch. On top of this I added a strip of paper from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies pad, which again I edged with the same border punch. Over the two layers of card, I wrapped a length of dark blue organza ribbon and tied it in a bow offset to the right. Before I tied the bow I incorporated a couple of lengths of fine pearl beading, just to add a little contrasting colour over the ribbon. Either side of the bow, I attached some small blue paper roses.
I cut out the image with a nestabilities deckle edge oval die and attached this over a layer cut from dark blue metallic card, with a slightly larger die from the same set. I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers, adding a little Spica glitter pen in dark blue and clear to parts of the image. I decided to use different shades of blue for the shells and plants which surround her rather than introducing too many different colours. I really love this stamp as it can be used in so many different ways.
I hope you've enjoyed viewing my project today and that you'll visit again soon as I will have more projects on here to share with you. Although I do put my WIS projects on here, it is well worth a visit to the WIS Blog as every day there are new and exciting projects displayed to inspire you.
Just before you go, I'd just like to remind you again of the fabulous sale running over in the QKD Store right now, 40% off most of the stamps in the Store - an offer too good to miss if you ask me!! There are also new stamps being released today, so well worth a visit to the Store to see what's available.
Thanks again for visiting and if you'd care to leave me feedback I would be so happy - I love reading all your comments!
