The First Time

August 13, 2008

Here is a card made for the Tuesday challenge over at the Crafty Secret Forum in SCS. Challenge was to bend the polymer stamps and to use a different shape for the card, other than square or rectangle.

Image of mother with child from the Baby Girl Stamp set Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps was stamped on white cs with Onyx Black Versafine. Image was colored with Tombow markers, then topped with Clear Liquid Embossing. This was set aside to dry completely. Traced a circle on the Pink DP from Two Scoops BasicGrey and used this circle as a guide to stamp the border. Place a clear acrylic block on top of the paper and curved the border just a little above the circle. Inked up the stamp with black ink and careful stamped around the circle. It really doesn't matter if you do not complete a full circle as one side will be cut for the fold. Used Tombow markers to color in the edges and the rose and added some clear sparkle with a Spica pen. Used scissors to cut around the border of the circle. Added the sentiment from the Mother and child image at the center top of the circle. Used 3 sizes of the round scallop nestabilities to die cut the pink circle scallops. The smallest one was used to mat the image of mother and child. The other 2 sizes were used together to cut the outer scallop. The pink scallops were sponged with Rose Romance to better match the rest of the color scheme. Used the single rose stamp on every other scallop and colored them with Tombow markers and topped with clear liquid embossing. This was set aside to dry completely, then tied with a pink ribbon. Stamped the booties on with cs then colored with tombow markers and topped with clear liquid embossing. Once everything was dried completely, assembled the different layers on the scalloped piece. Bootie was raised with double sided foam for dimension. The scalloped piece was glued on to the base circle card.
