Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.
I have had a PJ today and spent some time in my crafty room. Got a couple more cards done but the plan for tomorrow is to have a good go at getting some of my christmas cards done.
Going out tonight with some friends to our local pub to see a band. Should be a good night but not so sure about my head tomorrow lol. The eldest daughter has gone to the cinema to see the new James Bond film. Now I don't know about you but I really can't get excited about a Bond film. To me they are all the same, good guy, bad guy, good guy wins, end of film lol.
Anyway, here is my offering today. It is a birthday card that I have done for a birthday coming up in December. With all the christmas cards I have to do I thought I had better get the December birthdays out of the way.
Now I am quite pleased with myself because apart from the stamp and pearls the rest of the items on this card were made using my old stash. The stamp is a recent purchase from Imagination Crafts and is one of their decoupage stamps. I stamped the image onto cardstock and used some distress ink to age it a little. The dragonflies were then stamped onto acetate and I used the Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts to add the glittery sparkle to them.
I made my own background paper by using a small dragonfly stamp that came with the stamp set. I stamped it randomly in versamark and then used Mica powder for a bit of shimmer. The flower is a Tim Holtz die which was distressed with some ink and then some glitter added. As you can tell I used several dies on this card.
