Victorian Collage



I have this stamp set forever and pulled it out because I wanted to make a card to go with this embellishment!  The stamp set is Eloise Cottage from Red Rubber Designs, papers KI Vintage Charm.  The embellishment is made from a used dryer sheet.  I saw this on Pintrest (gabriellepllacco.blogspot.com) and had to try it, I did make several changes to personalize it.  You can hand cut circles, I used my scallop die cut, cut two of each size, placed them on waxed paper, misted lightly with Walnut ink, patted with paper towels to dry most of the way, then put glitter glue on the edges.  You are supposed to wait for it to dry but of course I went ahead and put my brad in the center right away and put it on my card, what is crafting without a little mess.   Let me know if you try this embellishment, I'd like to see your cards. I would like to enter this in Sketch Saturday: Sketch 348

Oh love this - and love the embellishment - I never had this stamp in my collection (kind of wishing I had it now) but I have several that this would work with. Great job on the sketch.
