I made this card for my niece who is turning 21 and thought the Penny Black Ginger stamp looked perfect for the occasion. I have been waiting for an excuse to ink Ginger up! Have tried to follow thru the laceyness of her dress with the rest of the card.
CB a square of rusty brown-burgundy cs (it's not burgundy, but it's not rust either, so this is the only way I can describe it!) with the Textile ef and attach to square of mustard cs. Using scrap of mustard cs, punch one side with Fiskars Lace Border punch (isn't it gorgeous?!) and attach to dp. Tie ric-rac ribbon around it and mount onto card base with 1mm mounts.
Stamp Ginger with Versafine Onyx Black onto WC paper; colour with Prismas and Gamsol. Glue gems in her hair and add a little bit of gold glitter to her handbag (can't see in photo, but it IS there!) Attach Ginger to brown-burgundy cs, then mustard cs, punching corners of each layer with Corner punch. Mount image with 2mm mounts.
Stamp sentiment onto WC paper with mix of Versacolor Burgundy + Paprika pigment ink; emboss with clear ep. Glue gem to flower centre; ink edges. Run oval of brown-burgundy cs thru Textile ef before attaching to sentiment, lastly mounting onto scalloped oval of mustard cs. Attach to card base with 2mm mounts.
Using scrap of mustard cs, diecut corner with CB Vintage Die; attach to card base with 1mm mounts. Glue 3 gems to corner, one teardrop gem in top rh corner, the other 2 circle gems to ends (peer closely at the photo and all will be revealed!!).
Thanks for having a peek!
