ABSC011 - Champagne anyone?



Well I'm thinking these flutes contain champagne..... the real french kind!!!

This is my card for the Annabella Stamp sketch challenge this week #011. I've used the beautiful dp from Grace Taylor for Grant Archival....... It's the one with the beautiful gold glimmer that is hard to catch in the camera! I've layered this onto some gold card which is attached to a layer of Bazzill Black.
The image is embossed in gold and lightly coloured with Copic markers. This stamp is a cheap one from Riot ..... I picked up two during the week..... couldn't quite believe that they would stamp so well. I'll post the second one later this week, it's a sweet kiddies stamp.
I've stamped onto GKD heavy weight pure luxury, pure white card which is also the base card. The bottom has been punched with a Martha Stewart border punch 'garden trellis' allowing the gold card to show through.
Three tabs of gold ribbon and two gold brads are the only embellishments on this card.
Hope you like this one!

We've had the strangest weather here, Saturday was just over 40 degrees c with a hot wind blowing most of the day, ending with a storm. Today, it's been 19 degrees and very grey......so hard to pick at the moment.
I spent hours today playing with my new light tent............. so far not too impressed. The lights that came with it don't seem that bright. In the end I took some pictures outside even though it was quite dull. This picture uses one of the coloured back cloths but was taken with just my sewing daylight light. Anyone with any tips I'd love to hear them.

I'm typing this and watching the tennis so excuse me if I'm all over the place.... Andy is winning yeah.

I'll be back tomorrow evening (our time) with my card for TMITA/PCC. Hope you can drop by.

Till then..........

Hi Sue, this is beautiful - very elegant, and I love the border punch! I have a light tent as well, but I never trusted the lamps they got way too hot and didn't really do the job...sorry I can't help.
Thanks for taking the time to play along with us this week, I love seeing your creations.

It has a simple elegance about it even though the champagne glasses are a bit whimsical. I think it came out great, Sue!

I love this card and every single detail of it. All the gold and gold embellishments make it so special. Love it! As for the lighting, I've given up. . .I've used halogen, bright day bulbs, multiple bulbs, 200 wt bulbs, nothing seems to be the perfect solution. Drives me nuts! Best, Curt
