Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Spent a bit of time in my crafty room today putting inserts and envelopes and boxes with cards that I have made. I always intend to do them as I go along but that just never happens. So I just end up with a box full of cards that need packaging up with inserts and envelopes. But got most of them done so feeling rather good about that.
We are off out for a meal tonight as it is my Mother-in-law's birthday today. Going to one of our favourite Indian restaurants so all is good.
Just thought I would show you a quick christmas card I have done using one of the Michael Powell urban stamps by Docrafts.
I used a spotlight technique to highlight part of the image. Quite effective and meant not too much colouring. Although you can't see it very well I sprayed the coloured part with some Spray n Sparkle to give it a nice sparkly sheen. The background was done by stamping a snowflake image on black card with Versamark and using Mica powder to pick out the image. I then matted using gold mirror card and added a glittery Happy Christmas sentiment. A few gems finished it nicely.
I really enjoyed doing this and think a few more with fill out my christmas card box nicely.
