Some new goodies arrived in my mailbox yesterday afternoon and everything else has taken a temporary back seat! This Kilkenny Cross image is by Holly Berry House and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey's new Indian Summer 6x6 pad. I love how intricate this image is, yet it's still so easy to work with. Stamper's Dream carries a wonderful selection of Holly Berry House images done in this same style: three different crosses, bells, a butterfly, treasure boxes, a snowflake, and a poinsettia. All I had to do for this look was stamp the cross in VersaMark ink three times onto two different Indian Summer patterns, heat emboss with glittery gold powder, trim down the three different layers, then assemble them back together with foam adhesive. Easy!
I embellished the cross with some white Kaiser Craft pearls that I custom colored using a R14 Copic marker. I layered the cross onto two different sizes of the Curved Rectangle Mega Nestabilities and accented with some Rose 1 1/2" silk ribbon tied with gold cord. I ran a VersaMarker along the edges of most of the panels, then dipped into the gold EP and heat embossed.
Finished size: 4 1/4" x 6"
Thanks for visiting!
