Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Journey Collection - Thoughtful Dress

Good Morning All and apologies for not posting last month.  I have been busy with various projects and also getting ready for Easter, decorating Pysanky.  A Pysanka is an egg that is decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method.  I will share photos with you all when finished. 

This month Heartfelt Creations launched  'Celebrate The Journey' a classic, travel themed collection.  It is full of papers, stamps and dies to document your life's adventures.

My card today the beautiful dress stamp. I have simply stamped and embossed the image, a favourite technique of mine,  then used distress inks with water to colour it in.

Card Size : 18cm x 14 1/2 cm (7" x 5 6/8").
Create a mask to cover the clock when stamping the dress collage onto white card .  Emboss using clear powder.  Using the distress inks and your waterbrush, colour the image as shown.  Stamp the image again and colour a few more flowers, cut these out.  Using your circle die, create the aperture.  Using the next size die down, create another aperture from aqua green card.  Adhere underneath using double sided tape. I then cut my card to measure 17cm x 14cm (6 5/8" x 5 1/2"). Stamp the sentiment onto white card using black ink and heat emboss. Position under the main image and adhere in place using foam pads.  Add tumbled glass distress ink around the edges and emboss with clear powder.  Adhere onto the main card using foam pads. Create a triple bow using white organza ribbon on the bow maker, add the brad around the centre and hot glue into place.  Add the pearls to complete. 

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for visiting me today,
