G'Day, just another hot day in Aussie Land, a lovely 40 deg cel, yuky.
Created a card recently using my new embossing folder called basket weave.
I first started with a tag, used my new distress paints (dusty concord, broken china) and created a background, then I ran it through the basket weave embossing folder. I decided to coordinate the colours with further design.
I stamped with StazOn (jet black) a lovely bird (that has feathers) on a branch using the KaiserCraft (bonjour) stamp set. I wanted a simple sentiment that would fit on the tag, so I went with A Day to Remember by Cloud9Designs (simple thoughts - memory). Which I heat embossed with lavender (opaque finish by Zing). Did not turn out as clear as I thought, so I stamped over with jet black.
I wanted to add a bit of dimension, so I thought flowers and dragonfly would suit nicely with some silver glitter and rhinestones.
I thought the basket weave was not showing too well, just lightly in the background, so I wanted to show it of and highlight the tag.
Thus I created another background and ran it through the embossing folder and sponged with dusty concord around a masked tagged to give glow effect and then sponged the rest with broken china. Now that is what basket weave looks like.
I wanted to show off my new fancy scissors with a Victorian cut and it looked so much better. I then stuck the tag onto that. It was a bit too big so I trimmed and lost some of the broken china I sponged earlier. I then sponged dusty concord around the edges. I then attached to a horizontal base card.
