Another Gesso Background

Here is another card with the Gesso background that I learned from Craft Stamper.


The lady stamp is Crafty Individuals and the sentiment is Penny Black on Spellbinder Labels 4.  Those gorgeous little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made this card for my good friend Julie at Paper Pathway.  Its scary making cards for Julie cause, as you can see if  you visit her fab blog, she is soooo talented!  I hope you have a nice day, mine will be spent making Christmas cards after I have caught up with all my blog friends - I am a bit behind at the moment! Take care and thank you for visiting.  Christine xx

My first thought, yummo! That's an amazing fluid fabricy background, Christ, just perfect for showcasing the svelt ladies and their zippy frocks. I'm a sucker for polka dots, too, so love the rose dotty background with the rose embellies! Well done!!

Sorry, I didn't mean to call you Christ. You see how sometimes this typing/brain meshing problem can go so wrong!

A beautiful birthday card, Chris. Your gesso background is lovely and complements the stamped embellishment so well. The black frames set-off the whole card and make it look so sophisticated. Fab work!
