Well Hello Bloggers
Here is my Simon Says Stamp and show some embossing, even while we are still on Monday! Well only just as it is nearly 11pm here in South Africa as I post this.
Today was Nelson Mandela's 93rd Birthday and the whole nation celebrated with him! He is such an inspiration to us all in our rainbow nation.
So here is my card made in his honor!
I started with the Blue Bird Cage which I embossed by putting a lazer cut through my Vagabond with my paper.
To enhance it further, I covered it with Distress ink and clear embossing powder. I then sprayed the whole thing with perfect pearls mist and left it to dry before punching the edge with a MS punch. I die cut the bird and cage from Tim Holtz's Sizzix range on shiny card stock which I then used alcohol inks on to make them bright and interesting.
Our flag I stamped on Shrink plastic, colored with alcohol inks and shrank it to look like a waving flag. To make the background more textured I used my music stamp with clear embossing ink to create a watermark on the paper.
I hope you enjoyed my tribute to an amazing man! Please let me know what you think of it by leaving a comment below.
Have a great week.
