|Card for my bad bad boy lol|
I made this card by folding an A4 sheet of off white card stock in half to make an A5 card blank and then I stamped over the front with A lip print stamp (no idea what brand as I found it in a drawer and it has no info with it - could be Bratz, yes the dolls Bratz at one point it was difficult to buy craft stuff cos I didn't trust internet shopping which is laughable now, so I had to improvise and Bratz had a craft set available) the OX stamp is from a Clearly Besotted stamps set called Just my Type (I think!) both images are stamped in Brilliance Crimson ink and has a slight sparkle to it. I stamped the Acid Drops & Whatnots "Bad Bad Boy" image and text onto a tall scrap of 350 gsm card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it in with ProMarkers:- Putty Gold metallic Berry Red Warm Grey 1 and 5 plus the blender (I coloured the stocking'd leg with WG5 then removed most of the colour with the blender). I stamped the Wild Rose Studios "Love Circles" sentiment onto a piece of white card, fussy cut it out and coloured over it with the Berry Red ProMarker. I layered it onto a scalloped circle punched out of gold card using a Woodware punch. I embossed a sheet of Colour Connection Red Glitter Card using a Sizzix Textured Impressions folder taken from the Love Set#2. I then cut it to size and layered the topper onto it with a generous amount of wet glue and weighted it down while it dried. I used thin foam tape to stick this layered topper onto the card blank. I added double thickness of foam tape to the circle and added it to the lower right hand side, then added a epoxy circle topper over the sentiment to magnify it slightly.

The stamp set comes with a smaller version of the main image so I stamped this at the bottom left hand side of the card using Memento London Fog ink. The sentiment is a foiled rub on which I've had for nearly 5 years now and unlike other brands still rubs off onto the project perfectly (some brands I've had in the past dry out and stick to the carrier sheet after a few years these ones only cost 50p and are fantastic - wish I'd bought more!) To make the heart pop up I punched out 6 hearts using a Woodware punch and folded them in half vertically. I stuck one half of each heart to another until I had a heart that would lay flat in the card but pop up once opened (with a bit of fluffing).
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my new creation, if you'd like to join in this week's challenge pop over to the Passion For ProMarkers blog. Until next time - keep crafting!
