Well it's time again for another fabulous High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by Niki and she has chosen "NO CORNERS".
I couldn't resist using Crissy's beautiful "Big Flower" image again. This time instead of painting it, I have done some Pergamano with it.
It is quite easy to use rubber stamps for Pergamano, all you have to do is stamp the image in black on a piece of photo copy paper and voila...you have a pattern to trace. I also used some pieces of different patterns I have to design the rest of the card. This card is done in 3 pieces. The card itself is made from a piece of brown velvet paper. The next layer is traced with copper ink and a mapping pen, the flowers are pierced with a 1 needle tool and the centers are embossed. I stippled the border between the outer 2 copper lines. The 3rd layer, the flower is traced with white Tinta ink and the center and dots is traced in copper. The flower is embossed with a medium embossing tool and both layers are cut out using a 2 split tool. The center of the flower is also stippled...its hard to see but stippling is piercing from the back and on the front areas that are stippled it is rough to the touch. I added some copper beads to the velvet card.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week, there are some fab High Hopes stamps just waiting to be won.
Before I go, I just have to share a pic with you. Yesterday was my birthday and as some of you know my daughter Chelle has quite a knack for making cakes. This is the cake she made for her Momma. How cute is this!! The lady bug is a cake in itself and all the icing is marshmallow fondant. The main cake was white with seedless raspberry jam in the middle.....I must tell you it was delicious!!
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by. Your wonderful comments are truly appreciated....
