Mimi Sends Love

Did you know that the symbol on the latest Mimi Stamp 'Dress-Up Mimi' 4265H means love, you can see where I found this out here.

Today the Penny Black designers have been challenged to make projects using this stamp and you can see their creations here.

Materials:- 'Dress-Up Mimi' 4265H, 'Airmail'  30-072, 'Wall Paper Print' 40-134 (this is very pale background on panel with words stamped, sadly it doesn't show up too well in the photo).

I cut the Plum marble card into scallop shape using my Cricut and Wildcard cartridge, I then drew a dashed line with a silver sakura gel pen.  To create the fans I cut three strips of origami paper, concertinaed and pinched in at one end. 
White card was then cut using a Spellbinders Circle Die and then distressed with Milled Lavender and Victorian Velvet ink then over-stamped wallpaper print in milled lavender to get subtle pattern. It was then stamped 'with love' from the Air Mail set' and symbol on the 'Mimi' stamp using a stamp positioner. 

A second piece of white card was then cut using an oval spellbinders die and the edges shaded with bundled sage ink. 

Mimi was then stamped onto a piece of scrap card, coloured with Copics and cut out and mounted onto oval with foam pads.
Copic used:- Face E53; Cheeks YR02; Fan YG61, G82; Dress RV93, RV95, RV000, RV69.

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you have a great week.
Hugs Cathy

I love the way those fans echo the scallops of the card shape & the very orientla look you created. The subtle wallpaper stamping shows up when the photo is clicked on & looks superb with the crispness of the black Roman & Asiatic scripts.
