Silver Beauty

Hi fellow friends. I am sharing my take on the latest Waltzingmouse Sketch.
This week, I decided to tackle silver. After going through my stash, I pulled out some vellum papers and discovered things I had forgotten I had!!

My background paper is a vellum with a subtle silver design going through it (you can't really tell in my photos). I stamped the sentiment and focal images from the  Waltzingmouse Victorian Frippery stamp set with Versamark ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder.

I used some silver vellum to add borders to my images. I die cut a border strip with the silver and love how it looks in the centre of the card.

To complete the card, I added ribbon, lace and a trinket pin. I also used the silver filigree heart brad to add a final silver touch to the card.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Victorian Frippery

Other: White card stock, Silver Vellum and patterned vellum, Spellbinders Nestabilities standard circles large, classic squares large and classic scalloped squares large, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fleur De Lis Accents, Versamark, American Crafts Zing silver embossing powder, Hooked on Craft trinket pin, Autumn Leaves scrap metal, ribbon, lace, Bow Easy.
