Borders and Frames - Diamonds and Dress


Diamonds and Dress




This card proved to be a little trickier than usual but I am always up for a challenge and won't be beaten if I can help it !! 
This was my 3rd attempt at getting the frame to look the way I wanted it.

Products used in this card are available from Oak House Studio.

Stamps used:

Valentine
Black
Plus a Black permanent ink pad. 

Emerald
Garnet

Other things needed are embossing powder, antistatic pad or talc and Red glitter glue.

Firstly stamp the border in place with a permanent ink pad also stamp onto a post it pad and make four masks, I do this by stamping once and then pull off four post its and cut once through all of the pieces - this makes short work of making masks. Cover the half diamonds with the masks and stamp the top of the diamond in the centre. Remove masks and save for another time.

Take the solid Dress Form stamp from the duo set and ink up in Valentine, line up and stamp in place, leave to dry or use a heat gun. Dust with the antistatic pad or talc, then take the decorative Outline Dress part of the duo and ink up using the Black pigment ink pad and cover with embossing powder whilst still wet, remove excess powder and heat set.

Stamp scrolls randomly around the form  and using ' Style ' out of the Creativity never goes out of Style place where ever you feel happy with, taking care when inking up the stamp not to get any ink on the rest of the stamp or alternatively mask off the area leaving a space where you want stamp the word.

Using the Acrylic inks paint the border and the scrolls.
Finally use the glitter glue on the dress to add sparkle.

Thank You for Looking 
Love Doreen
