|Black Tag Card by Jane Gill, friend and guest artist from the UK.|
This past two weeks Pam Hornschu and I were traveling in the UK. My distributor Woodware Craft Collection was exhibiting at a trade show in Birmingham and we demonstrated at their booth there. It was wonderful to renew old friendships with their stamp designers and demonstrators. Today I am sharing with you a card made by guest Jane Gill, who has her own stamp collection with Woodware in the UK. She is starting to sell her stamps here in the USA as well, so stay tuned in the future for a heads up where those stamps may be purchased.
This wonderful tag card was made by using our three small vase stencils (LM194, 195 and 196). Jane very simply shaded them onto yellow ochre colored cardstock with brown ink and then cut them out with scissors. She then stamped them with a small branch stamp and paste-embossed our multi butterfly stencil design (LL513) using matte black embossing paste (DMBP). When the butterflies dried she stenciled them with a glue stamp pad and metallic f/x powders. The black tag card was stenciled with our plum blossom stencil (LL535) and white ink. The love kanji character is a a class apeal sticker. The details are lovely...she made little black paper shelves for the vases to sit on by folding a small piece of paper into a square tube and gluing them into place under the vases. Metallic gold ribbons finished off the look. Although it looks difficult every step is simply done. One of my favorite types of cards for simple elements...thank you Jane for sharing your lovely work with us! So appreciate visiting again while in the UK ...hopefully we will see more of your work and stamps here in the USA. And Jane if you are reading along and I didn't get something correct, please add a comment below. A very big thanks for sharing your beautiful card this week!
Now take a moment to visit the team's sites listed below. This month's challenge continues on with our CAS love and friendship theme. Our random winners will be selected on the weekend coming up. If you are playing along please post your card HERE on mr. linky. Pam Hornschu is still traveling in Ireland and will be back soon. She is staying connected with us via Facebook. She and I had one day in London together before we had to go to work and we had an unbelievable jaunt in the Victoria and Albert museum. They were showcasing a wonderful display of furniture and of course their regular exhibits are fabulous as well, so you may see some of her pix on Facebook if you visit.
