The theme for this week’s Crafty Cardmakers is a Lady Gaga Video.
See stills on the Crafty Cardmakers website if you prefer not to watch the video – definitely not my cup of tea, lol!
From the video, I focused on silver, white, diamonds and bling but also on the part where she looks in a mirror, which is why the frame is there.
I stamped the image (Time to Stamp Glamour Girls) in Brilliance Starlite Silver on Glossy card, then cut to fit the frame (Life’s Journey from K&Co). The background is stamped with a Kars’ Harlequin Background, then heat embossed with a Silver/White sparkle Embossing powder.
The silver mesh (from my stash) was attached with a bit of double sided carpet tape (Wilko special, lol) behind the frame, then with 6 silver square brads – 3 at top left, 3 at bottom right – turned to look like diamonds. I didn’t want it to be firmly attached.
The word ‘Divine’ was from the same stamp plate and was stamped and embossed with Fine silver Embossing powder, then layered onto silver mirror card.
Wire embellishment (Woodware) was attached with Glossy Accents and after attaching the stamped layer to a piece of silver mirror card, then to a folded white card, I attached the frame to the front – again with super strong Double sided carpet tape, to keep it secure.
The prize for this week is approx £10 worth of Die cuts from
We’d love to see you take part this week.
Thanks for looking.
