Card of the Week

This week's card uses the Filigree Egg stamp by Memory Box. This is an elegant stamp that looks wonderful embossed. Below are the materials we used to create the card.

First thing we did was ink up the stamp with Versamark ink and then add white embossing powder to the image.

We heat embossed the white embossing powder with a heat gun. Embossing is an easy way to add texture to any project.

To add colour to the image, we used sponge daubers and Memento inkpads.  By making a mask of the original egg image on scrap paper, you can protect the actual image from getting any colour on it.  What you achieve is an additional colour around the egg that will complement the colour of the paper you stamped on.

And below is what the actual finished card looks like.  We simply added a narrow strip of patterned paper behind the egg image to create an interesting background.  The greeting is also stamped with versamark and embossed in white to match the egg.  We hope you like it!
