Its been some time since I used the Altenew Dodecagram stamp set. Altenew is one of my favorite stamp companies – I would buy every stamp they have, if I had the money! But, I’ll do with the ones I have first! 🙂
I must have tried a hundred color combinations before deciding on this set. I even debated between making it a solid color or a gradient. For this card especially, I think the ‘preparation’ took a hell of a time than the actual card!
So, coming to the card- I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I then trimmed the piece, going around the images stamped on the right. I then wrapper a thin gold embroidery thread around this piece and stamped the sentiment from the same set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. For the card base, I used Simon Says Stamp Seeing Spots stencil with Fossilzed Amber distress ink. I then mounted the panel on top.
Now, for the embellishment – I wanted to use enamel dots, but I don’t have any. I have never bought any. I feel that they are not a good investment for me, since they cost a lot (when calculated in Rupees) and I don’t get many in one set. So, I usually try to come up with an alternative. I’ve used nail polish and acrylic paint, with some success. This time, I used acrylic paint on some pearls. What do you think?
Thank s for stopping by! 🙂
