Hello there. Again, long time no speak - I keep uploading posts and saving them meaning to do a quick write up and then post it but before I know it, I've got 3 or 4 of them sitting there and weeks/months have gone by.
Big Oops! So, here's the first of the backlog of crafty things I have made since my last post.
This was a birthday card I made for hubby's sister. Wanted to do a non cute card and I knew I wanted to try out some silhouette stamps I bought just for such a non cute occasion. (I got them from Stamp addicts - after seeing them by chance in one of their newsletters and knew I HAD to have them!) No colouring either! Just good old stamping and heat embossing.
The image has been stamped and embossed with black holographic embossing powder and then I have just masked a circle of the sun and sponged the background with various distress inks. To be honest, the colours aren't what I had in mind but I just went with it then just found some co-ordinating cardstock and papers to mat and layer it. The sentiment has been punched out with my ATB tapewriter which I haven't used for ages and I've just added some orange gems either end to finish.
Right, will be back with more shortly!
