For the “From the Archives” tutorial of the newsletter I picked the Ghosting technique. I created the original tutorial back in 2006. It needed a makeover bad! I started out by cutting a piece of Glossy Cardstock with the second largest of the Label 1 Nestabilities dies. Putting the die back over the cardstock, I stamped the script background panel from Unity’s Store Kit Naturally You in Versamark all over my label. After the ink dried (hit it with a heat gun), I sponged Faded Jeans Distress ink over the panel.
A piece of black cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of the http://shrsl.com/?~18ub and the image label was adhered to that. A piece of Solar White Neenah cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the Fleur De Lis Accent dies and sponged with Faded Jeans Distress ink. A sentiment from Moments in Bloom was stamped in it’s center with Jet Black Archival ink.
A strip of 1 1/4″ x 5″ piece of The Girls Paperie Kitch Paper was adhered to a 2 1/4″ x 5″ strip from the same paper line. Both were adhered to a 5″ square of the same paper line and stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock. Gold Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers. The bow was topped with a Recollection rhinestone brad. The layers were adhered to a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of of Neenah Solar White cardstock, that had been folded in half.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
P.S.: I got my sewing machine back. It was so worth to get it serviced. It purrs like a kitten again and sews like a new machine! My stamp room is now complete!
