Celtic Pendant

This image is from the same Innovative Stamp Creations sheet as yesterday's card.

Card measures 5" x 6 1/2"

I started with a cream sheet of cs, and used a technique from TechniqueJunkies called Burnt Edges, applying Distress inks in the green family.

Distress inks take longer to fully dry than regular dye inks so if you plan on embossing, let it sit about an hour.

I used Adirondack Ginger to stamp the heart, then colored it in with pencils. The coloring is more blended in real life than the scan shows. I punched the corners from cream cs with Old Paper applied to it, then stamped with the word stamp using Ginger ink, and edged with Distress Vintage Photo ink and a sponge. I added antiqued copper brads to the the corners as shown.

I laid a sheer pale green ribbon along the edges, attaching it with mini Glue Dots. I applied the corner panels over the these adding more Glue Dots on each point.

I adhered the main panel to a dark brown piece of cs. I used an exacto knife to cut a slice just inside the loop and wrap a coordinating ribbon thru and over the top and adhered it to the reverse with Glue Dots.

For the larger background panel, I pressed a Distress pad in Vintage Photo onto a craft sheet, spritzed the area with water, and pressed a cream piece of cs into it. I layered this to a brown panel and then adhered the main panel to it. I added the decorative square brad as shown.

Thanks for looking!
