Featured Stamper - VA Sunshine!!!!

Hi Everyone! I am sooooooo late doing this week's Featured Stamper Challenge, but I really wanted to get one done because this week the honour went to the lovely Teresa (aka VA. Sunshine) who has a FANTASTIC gallery to choose from. It was so hard to settle on one card, but in the end I chose her Have Faith card. I really like the CAS cards, but seem to have trouble making them myself - so this is about as CAS as I get!! :) I changed almost all the card, colours, theme, removed the sentiment, changed the main panel shape and size.
I started with a white card base, layered with black and then more white that had been embossed with Swiss Dots. The middle panel is some gorgeous 'Ebony and Ivory' paper by Kaisercraft that has been matted with black and then the top and bottom edges have been punched with the Fiskars 'Lace' border punch. I also knotted some black satin ribbon around the bottom of the panel. The main panel was stamped using the 'Wedding' stamp set by Inkadinkado in Jet Black Stazon and cut with the Large Petite Oval Nestabilities and backed with foam tape and popped over a piece of black cut using the Label 4 Nestabilities. Finished off by adding three black pearls to the bottom corner.
Stamps - Wedding (Inkadinkado)
Paper - Black, White, Ebony and Ivory DSP
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Accessories - Lg Petite Oval Nestabilities, Label 4 Nestabilities, Fiskars 'Lace' border punch, black satin ribbon, black pearls (Kaisercraft), foam tape.
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!! :)
