As promised, New Art!

When I first got my Bigz Scallop Card die (Sizzix) from Terryfic Times, I knew it was really a banner in disguise. I have been wanting to make this ever since! I already have several backgrounds ready to go for new sayings. They will go to a craft bazaar.

As you can see, I didn't have much luck at photographing it. But the scanner didn't do too bad. You still can't really see just how much this pops, or the glitter from the Stardust pen adding just the right touch but you should get an idea.....

These are cut from cardboard and white glossy card stock, then glued together for stability.

Once the backgrounds are created, I stamp the flourishes and main images in White, dry, then off stamp again in black.

I dry the inks then seal first with a U.V. sealer, then with a couple of coats of glossy.

Now to add the details, lots of Souffle pen work, Stardust pen work, adding the eyelets and "jump rings" (which are really tiny slinky type rings)!

Add the flowers, and ribbons, and anything else that suits your fancy, and what a gift! Well, at least I think so. :-)

By the way, the letters are Indulgence by Spellbinders.

So, do please leave a comment, share the URL, and if you make some, let me see!
