Subtle Shimmery Love :)

Hi Friends!

Today at ICR, our Hostess, Gopi has come up with new challenge for Coaster ride this month, Tic Tac Toe, a fun challenge, of course with a twist :) And we have come with first set of inspirations!

I took the left top diagonal Sparkle/Bling -  Love Sentiment/Quote - Stitching

Now onto card :)

Took fog cs, stamped doilies in Frost white, Pigment ink from colorbox.

Stamped the doilies on the kraft cs with black archival ink and punched the centres with 1 inch circle punch. (For Mandala twist --any repeated patterns in concentric fashion -- Medallion, doily, Mandala can be stamped, stencilled, hand drawn)

Popped these centres on the doilies with foam tapes to bring about some dimension...to otherwise plain card. A big black rhinestone for the centres and generous wink of stella clear for all the subtle shimmery highlights.

Added a stitched black ribbon, which notched at one end for added interest.
IBS Sentiment stamped using Archival ink and added on top of the ribbon. A wood veneer heart is sponged at edges with rich cocoa momento ink and peach rhinestone added to it for all the final touch.

Mounted this on the A2 top fold black card using double sided tape. Am in love with fog, white, black with a pop of kraft color...Never used such color combos before, purely a sweet experiment :)

(Tip: Here haven't used liquid glue to stick vellum on ribbon, as its always a failure. Rather i used a tacky tape twine just under the vellum banner and made it as unnoticeable. Its simple, take a double sided tape, take off the backing liner paper and simultaneously roll it tight to the needed length. This twine can be used just under those much needed non paper/fabric - vellum adhesive times..Important is to have non inky fingers when rolling, as the twine would be stained during rolling. )

Hope you like the card!

Do play along and this time our Sponsor is Meetu Agarwal's Krafter's cart store and its offering Rs 500 GC as winner's prize.

Happy Crafting!
