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.
I 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:
It was so much fun and I did my best!! Yay~~ :D
