Verve Week 2

DSC04993

I have a card and a new to me technique to show you today. I used VLV sketch for week 2 this time.

Can you see my colourful background? I applied Versamark on an embossing folder and stamped it on to a white CS, applied clear embossing powder on it and then heat set it. After the CS cooled down I inked it with distress inks and removed the excess off with a damp tissue.

Close up what the background looks like:

Can you see the Cuttlebug embossing folder’s design? I didn’t apply a lot of pressure otherwise I would have gotten a solid damask design, but I like how delicate this one looks.

The flower is handmade, I used the Verve stamps gorgeous tissue wrapping paper to make this and some tulle.

A big chunk of ribbon that I added in place of a CS layer by adding ruffles just to give the card more texture.

That’s all for today.

Ciao!

The background is beautiful. I've heard about (and tried) stamping/embossing with ink in a folder but never thought of using VM. Can't wait to try it myself!
