Today's step by step, is a card I made for Leonie's Typography show. The shows will still be available on 'Rewind' via the Hochanda website.
To start I took the 'Antique Frames' from Sara's Shabby Chic collection, using the second die in the set I cut it 3 times. I then stuck them over the images I wanted to use for this project. The sheet I used here is from The 'Gilded Lily' from Graphic 45. I roughly cut them out before carefully trimming them in line with the frame.
The 'Classic Lily' dies from the same Shabby Chic collection were cut from a script design in the Graphic 45 pad. I added more tone and colour to the leaves using Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.
For the background paper, I cut my card to 7 3/4'' square. I stamped the top of the tree from Leonie's 'Funky Tree' stamp set. The colours I used were Antique Linen,Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet. I used the same colours over the card and concentrated the colour around the edges of the card. The Lily flowers were also coloured using these inks. When finished I layered my background onto black card, leaving a very narrow border
I added dots of the Mixtion Relief from Pebeo on the embossed areas of the frame and the ends of the lily stamens. Once this was dry I gilded them with the Pebeo Gold leaf sheets.
I cut a border strip from the same Graphic 45 pad and backed it with black card. I then cut out 'A La Mode' from Leonie's Typography die collection before assembling the card as shown.
