Blockhead's New Release

Hi Everyone,
So glad I worked out all my Blogger problems which were taking up all my time.  Now I just have to figure out what is going on with my camera.  LOL.  And now, as I promised, I have the first of a series of posts featuring the New Releases from Blockheads Paper Arts.  Today's project uses the new release called Vintage Light and Form.  This set is available in a half sheet and each stamp can also be purchased as an individual stamp.  

As you can see, I used the Dress Form image for my card.  I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black dye ink (Memento) on pink Tissue paper.  I stamped several images and them tore the tissue paper to the desired size.  I crumpled the paper and then smoothed it out.  This also called the Faux Silk Technique.  If you would like to check out my tutorial on this technique click here.

 The tissue paper was glued to a white CS base.  I added some pink pearls for accents.  Here are a few more views for you.

For the inside of the card, I stamped one Dress Form on Pink CS after stamping off once to soften the image.  I used a sentiment from the Verses-Special Delivery Stamps set to complete the inside.

 This would be a great girlfriend card.  You could change out the sentiment for a birthday, hello, or just about anything.  Hope you enjoyed checking out this new release.  I will be back with more Blockheads New Releases over the next few days.    Here is a sneaky peek of my next post.
Doesn't that look interesting?!  See you soon.  Love ya.

  1. What a simply gorgeous, fun, and lovely card! Guess what? I have not Followers again. Ha! I have filed the famous trouble report and let them know I have tried to sign in and out with all 3 browsers. Can't wait to see what they say. Have a great evening. We finally had some rain this pm and loved it!
