The main background for this card was and SGV template downloaded from.http://dan99.blogspot.com/. He has some fantastic ideas!!! I inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress ink and put a few feux white stitches here and there, added a few button, a stamped image on some accetate and a few other bits and bobs.
I have been experimenting with my camera. I have found I have not been able to take a good photo without daylight. These were taken this evening... I think a bit more playing with the settings and I will be there.
I stamped the large background medallion stamp in whisper white ink onto chocolate chip card stock and cut out the centre and placed a brad in the middle. I used the 1" circle punch and punched it out of the other bit!
There is a very sad story behind this little album. I took photos of it before I stuck my pictures in and then I was going to take pictures again after I had completed it by adding the photos and the journalling. Well I did complete it BUT I found it on the drive this morning, it had dropped out of the book it was in and must have been ther all night in the pouring rain. I made a few observations from this accident. I discovered that Stampin' Up Whisper white ink does not run, that the kraft card stock dries to a lovely rough texture when dried out on a radiator and the Stampin' Up Snail Adhesive still sticks even after it has been soaked!
A slight variation on the previous two days, a normal gate fold card. I scalloped the edges and the made them meet in the middle with Tempting turquoise card stock. I used the standard index wheel from the hostess Solitude Bundle and ran it down either side using whisper white ink, the little bird also came from the same set.
Another card with the same design as yesterday but a differnt colour scheme. This time I used colours from the Bold Bright colour family ( YoYo Yellow and Real Red) I Stamped the front of the card with the background stamp Polka Dot in Whisper white ink. The Stamps come from the set Tart and Tangy. The ribbon is the Real Red 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
