A night of Romance

I have a beautiful new silhouette stamp from Crafty Individuals to show you today. A Night of Romance.


This tag was quite easily made (that sounds as if this didn't take me long to do, but in fact it took me hours of thinking and designing time again!!!), anyway to achieve this effect I blended antique linen over the tag and some peacock feathers DIs. The image was stamped fairly centrally and then I cut a mask to cover the whole design, that then allowed me to continue with the collage theme and I stamped the CIs music, crackle and a text stamp around the edges.


The corner flourish is a new vintage Joy die and I added a few gems to it. The flat backed pearls were alcohol inked to achieve the black finish and my flower is a mixture of Prima and die-cut petals. 

A black gem strip and black ribbon and it's done.


When this post goes live I will be travelling back from my holiday, so catch ya later and have a great weekend.

Stunning! I am a huge fan of collage stamping and you have achieved it here brilliantly. So classy with that black against the muted colours and I love the addition of the pearls along the side and on that beautiful corner die!!
