Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Lorraine's turn to host and she would like to see 'Embellish It'
So I'll explain about this weeks make, it's not a morbid card, it is a very sentimental card to me. It is for my Son's Birthday on the 24th October, he would have been 26 years old. We still celebrate his Birthday as if we would have if he was still here with us. So he was really into Game Of Thrones, and loved crows which featured in the series too. Every day we go to the cemetery and we always see Crows, we joke when there is a cheeky one that comes quite close to us, we say I bet that's our Scott.
So to create this I started with the background, using various sprays, particularly my new Distress Mica sprays from the Tim Holtz Halloween collection. I created an arch from a piece of card and used it as a stencil to ink around. Then using a brick stencil I inked through it around the outside of the archway. I stamped my main image the Crow and embossed him in clear embossing powder so he stood out a bit more. Then in the arch I stamped in chipped Sapphire ink the Crafty Individuals Inky script. I added some branches. I die cut a wrought iron fence and added that after I rubbed it with a bit of gilding wax. I also added gilding wax to the stone cross. I took some plain white flowers and sprayed them with the same inks, and added a brad to the centre of each. It's a real shame you can't see the mica on the picture, it looks fabulous.
I also stamped on the envelope to go with the card.
