Humble Artist's Swap

I am slow in posting this card I made for my Humble Artist's Swap group. So I thought I would start 2011 off with it since my Christmas cards are done!

We were required to create a clear card with 3 embellishments. Unfortunately, since I can't access my old e-mail, I can not tell you what else was in the requirements. But here is what was included in mine.

I inked a Dimensional Element with Sorbet ink, then stamped with Blooming Flourishes. Once that was dry, I painted a light coat of Pearl Paint...this must have been what got my paint frenzy started for December! I took one of CTMH's bigger brads, dipped it in Liquid Glass then into Prisma Glitter. I secured a piece of organdy ribbon with the brad, through the Dimensional Element.

I used Noted Backgrounds to stamp the bracketed note on the front of the card and Spot On Backgrounds for the polka dot piece, inside the card. All of the black ink was Staz On and for the flourish border, I stamped on the inside and outside edges for the effect. The stamp set is the stamp set that came with the Olivia Workshop On The Go kit.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
