More Spring Candy!

Barb Hardeman, a fellow Technique Junkie, posted a card using Dry Embossed Wash from the 12/07-01/08 Newsletter. I fell in love with her creation and had to try the technique myself. Take a look at Barb's here. It is breathtaking. Below is my attempt.

The Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl was used with the background technique. The main image is Truffle Tree by Impression-Obsession. It was stamped with Brilliance Gold Galaxy and painted with Twinkling H2O's. The words are from Word Plate I from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. They were stamped with Stazon Saddle Brown . The color is not as intense as it looks here.
The edge around the tree was done with Fiskars Scallop Scissors . The holes were punched with a paper piercer. The gold on the bottom and top of the scallop trim was done with a Gold Krylon Pen , using the Taped Edges technique described in the tutorial I posted yesterday. I used Gold Mirror Board underneath the scallops on the right and left of the scalloped trim. Up close the edge differences really look great and add interest. I used 1/4" pieces on each side. It goes a lot further that way. Mirror board is expensive.
The ribbon is from Michaels $1 bin. The Faux Pearls embellishment are from my local rubber stamp store, Stamper's Alley. You can also fine them at most fabric and hobby stores near the bridal area. The Pearl Stickers are by Hero Arts.
Thanks for stopping by to see my new card!
