Winged Beauty

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by. Once everyone goes to bed it is not uncommon for me to head down to The Studio - as much as I get deadlines met and other projects completed - I do like to spend the time doing something for 'ARTS' sake - I am sure you know what I mean!  I often try to create using my 'proiffial' vision rather than be exact and keeping within the lines I do find it very freeing.  For today's card I have used a Penny Black Inc. cling stamp set.

I have inked the images from the Penny Black inc. Winged Beauty cling stamp set using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal, Rhubarb Stalk and Bamboo Leaves with a sponge dauber.  Next they have been stamped onto white card stock.  Once the ink is dry I have created a sky background using the edge of torn card stock and Imagine Memento Ink in Summer Sky, this has also been applied using a Sponge Dauber.

The card front has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and popped up onto slightly larger black card stock using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape. The layered image is then adhered to the pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra

The top sentiment has been stamped using black ink, trimmed and adhered to the top right corner of the card front, some sponging has been added o make it blend rather than stand out.  The lower sentiment has been computer generated, trimmed and adhered to the lower right corner also using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

Love the die you use to cut your focal image panel - very free flowing with the deckle edge and yet defined with the embossed feature along the border. I really like that look!
