Today I was totally inspired so came up with this! The background is inspired by the very talented Paula. I used distress inks to create the background then stamped using inks and gold embossing powder.
The main focal point was inspired by Barbara from Clarity Stamps Create and Craft show that was on on Sunday. She stamped and embossed some velum, then dry embossed the image again from the back. Well, seeing as how I have a drawer full of vellum (show me a crafter who dosent!) I thought I'd give it try!
The card itself was actually inspired by tattoo's!! I am totally addicted to the show Miami Ink (anyone else?) Infact, over the Easter hol's I got Tim Holtz's skull stamp from the Anthology set tattoed on the back of my neck. Anyhow, I digress. The stamp is one I've had for ages. I usually only use the swirly bit of the dragon but thought I would give him centre stage for a change. I totally cannot remember who makes him though!!
I added some felt ribbon at the bottom and some gems from my stash.
This card also fits in with this weeks Allsorts challenge, which is to not use ANY design papers, which is what I've done!!!
Have a fabulous day!
