12 Days of............Day 9

I have now got to Day 9 of 12. My plate this time is supposed to represent 'Nine Ladies Dancing'.

I started with a piece of white glossy cardstock, cut to 4 x 4 inches. I then used Ranger alcohol inks and an applicator in aqua, pink sherbet & cloudy blue to make a cloudy sky-type background. Once happy I stamped a stamp called 'Tiptoe' by Stamp-It in Versafine onyx black onto a piece of white textured cardstock. I swiped this with Impress peony purple and hydrangea inkpads and rubbed in with a waterbrush. The coloured image was cut out.

I then took a music stamp (?) and stamped this twice at the bottom of the card in Versamagic turquoise gem & pixie dust inks, slightly offset. The word was made up from Sizzix clear alphas and stamped on a white card in Impress peony purple and whilst still wet heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The background was coloured with more ink applied with a waterbrush. This plate was edged in purple ink also.

The chipboard number 9 was stamped and coloured with alcohol ink and Impress ink. All embellishments were then stuck in place with glue stick.

The outside edge of the card was inked in more of the pink chalk ink to finish.

I like the misty colours of this one, and it is quite different from the rest in the series.
