I have been so busy over the past few weeks that I have missed out on making something for the Saturday Cinema Creative challenge, (it is worth checking their site out, there are some truly beautiful cards there, great for some inspiration, and this week are offering some blog candy 🙂 a delightful stamp set called Branching Out from Taylored Expressions). It is a lot of fun, and I find it a good way to do some things that I wouldn’t normally, and my card for this challenge is certainly totally different from my usual style. This week’s movie is the James Bond movie, Goldfinger. I am not a James Bond fan, and this is another movie I haven’t seen, so once again I had to use my limited knowledge and interrogate 🙂 my ever supportive and helpful husband.
The Martini Glass is a clip art image which has been printed onto vellum and then cut out. I have then used a Versamark pen to go around the edging and emboss with gold powder. I have then adhered the bottom of the glass to the cardstock, and used glue dots on the top part of the glass which I have pushed out to make it rounded like a real glass. The second photo will show you what I mean.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Vellum Cardstock.
Ink: Versamark, Versamark pen (not Stampin’ Up!)
