Recently Cath over at Moxie Fab World set fun challenges that I’m going to have lots of fun trying. Also Hero Arts has interactive cards, something I’ve never tried before, as part of the May challenge. So today I had some time and decided to get inky!
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Newspaper Eiffel Tower & Starburst Lace
I love the Newspaper Eiffel Tower stamp which I received recently. For my first time inking it up, I thought I’d flounce everything up on the embellishment side, as I was thinking of can can dancing/the Moulin Rouge as I was making the card. So I just stamped the background and added some lace which I had removed from a blouse I don’t wear anymore. Over that went some very pretty ribbon which my good friend Linda (thanks again, Linda) had sent me and I topped things off with pearls.
I made a mini envelope (it took me several attempts to get it right!) out of cream pearlescent card and embossed the flap with the Starburst Lace stamp. Inside the envelope is a little love note and lots of punched hearts. I put a little flap inside the flap of the envelope and placed some hearts in between the flaps so that hearts sprinkle out when the envelope is opened. The feathers behind the envelope are another little salute to the can can.
I’m submitting the card into the Postage Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and the current Hero Arts Challenge.
