cards for allison

I made this card for Allison Acton, one of my favorite stamp-designers and I already shipped it of to Canada.. I hope she likes it. Her and her husband are expecting their firstborn and they know it is going to be a boy. So I send this card to congratulate them..
The card is made with a technique I learned from Jennifer Mcguire. I tones the background paper with distress ink (broken china), then I stamped (swirl-background from Hero arts) and clear-embossed it, and then I inked over it again.. I think It´s such a cool technique.. I used a stamp from Panduro with a cute little trolley, embossed it in black and then coloured it with distress ink. Finally I used letters from my little shoebox and faux stiching round the edges. To top it of I distressed a chipboard crown to put over the babys head..

Jeg har lavet dette kort til en af mine favorit stempeldesigner Allison Acton der venter hendes første barn, en dreng. jeg har allerede sendt kortet til Canada så nu håber jeg at de kan lide det.. Jeg har lavet det med en teknok som jeg har set den talentfulde Jennifer Mcguire bruge på en af hendes mange videoer. Jeg har først tonet et stykke papir med distress ink (broken china) derefter stemplet med mit Heroarts backgrunds stempel, embosset med klart pulver og så kommet sværte herover igen.. på den måde forbliver swirlsne lyse.. cool.. ikk? Jeg har brugt et stempel fra panduro med en sød lille barnevogn, embosset det i sort og farvelagt med distress-ink. For at slutte det hele af har jeg lavet falske syninger rundt i kantet, brugt bogstaver fra my little shoebox og sværtet en krone blå som er placeret over barnet hovede..
