Another Fine Mess
When he told me his teacher was of Spanish descent, I had an image of red with black lace and thought I would make a card like this one I made last year for my mother-in-law's birthday, but in red.
I can't tell you what Adirondack alcohol ink colours I used in this background because I made it yonks ago and it's been sitting in my scraps stash - I'm pretty sure Red Pepper was one of them as it's much more red than this photo let's on.
I used the Merci from the Waltzing Mouse set Paris Nouveau. Originally I had stamped a label from this set and cut a label from the matching Spellbinders Labels 25 set, but it was too big and completely obscured the calligraphy panel. I ended up cutting out the centre from the label using a Spellbinders Petite Oval (I didn't have enough scrap to start again), and mounted it with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag and a larger Petite Oval cut from black.
I have to thank Laurie Schmidlin and WMSC110 once again for the inspiration for this card.
