Wow… with each round, the task is getting more difficult and very tricky as well. The theme for round 4 is ‘BORDER STAMPS‘ and I – honestly and seriously – just have one border stamp set. OMGoodness!!!

……It’s OK!! The one-and-only border stamp set is so beautiful and enough to make a good card (I believe…)

Here it is:

When you look at this card, what is the first thing that come to your mind? Passion, classy, rose, frills, and beautiful Red & Black… Let’s dance Flamenco!
I named it ‘Flamenco Fantasy‘ and You are my greatest joy!!

I wanted to express gorgeous red long dress, beautiful red rose using lace border stamps, and happy dancing moment through paper frills. It was so great moment and the greatest joy.

20140609-02I heat embossed music background stamp in clear on the black card base at first. I then blended with several reddish colours of Distress Inks on the watercolour paper. After red watercolour paper was completely dried, I carefully stamped chosen border stamps in black and added shiny effect using Clear Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. For sentiment, I aligned it along with lace borders. To make it stand out, I stamped in Frost white on the black banner.

Here is a detailed view:
