This morning I headed up to my craft room quite early - decided everything else could wait because I wanted to play. I spent a very happy hour or two messing about and then settled down to actually make a card. I recently bought one of Sheena Dougass' "Little Bit Sketchy" stamps (Busy Doing Nothing) from Crafters Companion and managed to cut it out last night so decided to use that today.
I stamped the image onto some Elegance Satin paper from Joanna Sheen, coloured it using my ProMarkers and cut it out using a Spellbinders nestie. I intended to spray it with Spray and Shine from Crafters Companion but picked up the wrong can so it ended up being Spray and Sparkled instead!
Here is the finished card
I have used Tim Holtz distressing ink in milled lavender around the edges of the oval and dusty concord along the cut edge before mounting it onto yellow card also cut with a Spellbinders nestie. The yellow patterned backing I made when I was messing around - I inked up an embossing folder before embossing a piece of Neenah card. I then dusted over the surface with some pearlescent Cosmic Shimmer mica powder, though it's difficult to see on the photo. Here is a close up
Finally I embossed a piece of Coredinations card from Crafters Companion using a "Special Touch of Mica" mask (ivy) and lightly sanded it back to form the other piece of the backing. Overall I am quite pleased with this card and hope you like it too.
