Art Journey Challenge 5# 2011

This is No 1.
Hi all this is the card I made with art journey stamps that I should have uploaded before. zzzzzzz Are you still with me?? lol

I used the background and image stamps and my versamark pad to stamp onto white card. After dusting with leaf green embossing powder and setting with my heat gun, I sprayed the background card only with copper shimmer spray, blotting fairly quickly to retain the pattern. I stamped the text "joy" onto the background then stamped the text "you make life sweet" along one edge. I cropped the stamped image and mounted onto a square of the background after rounding the corners and inking the edges with an illuminations pad in copper. I cut a strip of beige card and taped chiffon ribbon in the centre then mounted this onto green patterned and then onto beige papers as shown inking the edges too. After adding the stamped image on top I made a beaded pin which I placed above the image then added small brads in copper to the four corners of the beige card. I made 2 more cards in a similar fashion but I used photo corners on photo 2 instead of brads. I'll post these separately.

Hope you enjoy looking and I'm entering No 1 for the Art Journey challenge no 5#.
