Fleur de Lis

Hi Everybody,

This card has a mixture of techniques on it and the Fleur de Lis die is from Crafti Potential and is the Stitched Rectangle set

I added some Stick It sheet to my card and die cut the word and then removed the "S" from thanks and added Gilding Flakes to it.

The "YOU" is from another set and all I did with that was stamp and emboss it in gold powder.

So the background has been ink blended with dark colours and then splattered with clean water and dry with a paper towel to prooduce the blotchy look.

I used a stencil and bronze Nuvo wax to get the pattern down the sides of the panel and then cut out the Fleur de Lis.
 I added the panel with foam tape to raise it up onto a white base card.
Dotted it with some green sequins and there is the card finished and ready to send .

Quick and easy and looks much better in the hand 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Hi Christina
    Love the card. Another technique I will have to try. Wouldn't have thought of using wax through a stencil. Thanks
    Best wishes
