Happy Birthday Mannequin Aperture :D


A brightly coloured glittery mannequin aperture card, created using the fabulous Handmade with Love A4 stamp set FREE with issue 40 of Creative Stamping :D This is such a fab versatile set, and is a great addition to your crafty stash :D Today's card is really simple, and is in some ways similar to the shaker card I made for the magazine, I thought I'd made a video showing how I cut out the centre of the mannequin, so that you have the written instructions in the magazine, and a video too, because if I had added acetate and some shaker elements, then this could have been a shaker card too :D And I thought it would be nice to show a different card, rather than re-make the one I did for the magazine lol :D

So for my glitter knitted aperture baker, I stamped the cable knitting (love how well this stamp works, and how realistic it looks too!!!) in an ombre using Butter Bar, Pale Tomato and Ultra Pink Hero arts ink cubes, then I covered that with some wide double sided, then I added some Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels :D :D :D For my main background of the card, I very much created it in the same style as I would an Art Journal layout (go see my second channel ArTi PoTeNTiAl if you like Art Journalling :D), but I started with ink blending rather than spray inks :D I used the same colours of Hero Arts inks for the stamping, and I used Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks for the ink blending :D I also did some ghosting and some ink blending with the Tonic beautiful Bokeh stencil :D I added splashes of white and black inks and I used the border stamps, and sequin stamp from the set to add some subtle tone on tone stamping on the ink blending too :D Hope you liked the card :D :D :D
