I am sorry for the lack of posts, I have been very busy. But I am back now and have this weeks card for the Tuesday Taggers challenge. The theme is Diamonds are forever chosen by my teamie Pat.
You need to go and have a look at what they have all done to see what diverse samples the design team have come up with.
I have chosen to used Diamonds in the form of gems and ink.
I have used retiring colours Lavender Lace and Almost Amethyst. I have used the Medallion background stamp and inked it up with Platinum shimmer paint using a dauber and then stamped it out. I have chosen to use just part of the image and not the whole image because it sat better with this projects. I have used rhinestone brads, using a whole one in the middle of the image and the smaller ones around the outside have been taken out of the casing and stuck on with tombo multipurpose glue.
I have used Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon, which is also retiring, and have cut into the ribbon and taken a strand of the ribbon and then pulled after taping one end so it didn't just unravel using sticky strip. I have used the Oval All, which is NOT retiring and the oval scallop and large oval punches, which are being reconfigured.
Once again I am sorry for my absence and I will be back very very soon.
Until next time, happy crafting
