Dazzling Diva #63

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

I'm back with another Dazzling Diva Challenge brought to you by Add a Little Dazzle, and today we're putting a new spin on things and using a mood board as our inspiration:

Isn't it fantastic?  What a lot of inspiration to get that mojo going!!!  And here's where my mind went:

Now you're going to have to trust me on this...that embossed heart is actually silver, just like in the mood board.  After 35 or so shots, I gave up on trying to get it to photograph right...

I've stamped a background stamp diagonally across my card base, added a die cut wood look tag, complete with twine.  The heart has been die cut from the reverse side of a sheet of Add a Little Dazzle craft metal and run through an embossing folder and a simple sentiment completes the card.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Simon Says Stamp and MME Necessities - Wood
Ink:  Hero Arts Black and Versamark
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Teeny Tiny Backdrops and MFT 
All the other stuff:  Add a Little Dazzle craft metal, Big Shot Pro, Verve A Cut Above Jotted Heart die, twine, SU! embossing folder, MFT Pierced Traditional Tags STAX, foam adhesive, Glossy Accents

  4. This is really pretty, Lee-Anne. Kind of a combination of a cas and collage style card- and perfectly crafted! The neutral palette is awesome!

  5. LOVE the mix of elements. The stamped tiny hearts for the background are so sweet ... and I love the way the metal sheets take embossing ... deeply etched and gorgeous! Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. xx
