Charlotte Beauty

I used a brayer inked with pale plum ink onto the Victorian A2 embossing folder by Cuttlebug before embossing the card, then using the same ink I stamped the penny Black footnote stamp at the bottom of the card.
The Image stamp Charlotte was inked with Perfect Plum ink then I used a Koi Brush to draw the colour into the image.


recipe:~

Stamp: Charlotte by Stamp It, Penny Black Stamp, Footnote

Tools: spiral punch by Stampin Up, Embossing Folder Victorian by Cuttlebug, koi watercolour brush

Inks: Perfect Plum & Pale Plum both by Stampin Up

Card Cream By Papertrey Ink

Attention to detail...

The ribbon was a find I made in a local haberdashery, it is kind of weird, it is and open weave lace cotton and is very soft to the touch.
