As promised yesterday, I'm back today to show you another of my cards for the Elusive Images Design Team application. I particularly wanted to use a set of stamps which was only released just before our applications had to be in but they were something a bit different for me so presented a bit of a challenge as to what to do with them. I do hope you like the end result.
I decided to create what could perhaps be part of a lady's dressing room with the table holding my lady's perfume bottles and a mirror and with shelves either side on the 'wall'.
To keep everything in proportion, I wanted the perfume bottles smaller so I stamped and coloured them onto shrink plastic and was really pleased when they shrank to the perfect size.
I stamped one of the bottles onto card and deliberately cut the stopper off when I cut it out so that I could use it as a vase on the floor and I took a peacock feather stamp from one of the peacock sets and cut the image out to place in the vase. I attached some of the images with foam pads to give some added dimension. The partial quote in the mirror is from another Elusive Images set of stamps. One of the things I like about EI stamps is their ability to mix from one set to another. I used 'wallpaper' from my Graphicus Guild pack (but it's also on the Artylicious Peacock Summer Party cds).
I had used an 8" x 8" card base but folded the front back before fixing the actual front of the card. I then needed a lady for the dressing room and the perfect one is to be found on another of the EI Peacock range of stamp sets. I coloured her in tones to match the lovely Artylicious paper and layered her onto matching card before fixing her on the inside of the card.
I hope you like this card and as always, thankyou for visiting. Please leave a comment if you have time as I really appreciate them and love to visit everyone back.
