Diva Babe

Hello fellow crafters and followers, hope you are all well today.
Tuesday is usually my day off and I usually can be found crafting with my Skype chums Kathy and Sheila. (sheila's blog link if you would like to view her project card).  You can see Kathy's card here. Today was no exception and today we had decided to do a project together.  Sheila chose three backing papers and two layouts.  This card is my first.  The image is from Saturated Canary stable and was a freebie, isn't she lovely.  A definite little Diva.
I started with a C5 plain white card, did some matting and layering with navy card and then one of the backing papers Sheila has chosen.  Because I have taken this card into Serif Craft Artist to display it you cannot actually see the navy.  I then coloured my digi stamp with a mixture of spectrum noirs and copics, die cut it and inked around the edges with antique linen distress ink.  I then matted that onto some more navy card.  The brick wall behind is a piece of white card, embossed with a brick embossing folder but I also inked the raised side with Fired Brick distress ink, placed my die cut card in and embossed.  I matted that onto some more navy card.  I am really pleased with the effect.  I then finished it all off with some gems, flourishs and a diva stamp onto another little die cut.  I do hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by and viewing my blog.  You take care and see you soon.
