I hope that today brings you peace and quiet with lots of relaxation and perhaps a lovely roast Sunday lunch?
Mark and myself are still away and today we are running a workshop at Inspirations in Preston (Hunkydory)
Today I have a card that I really enjoyed making and love the simplicity of it too.
The die cut image is from last years collection from Marianne and if you cut it and leave it in the die you can stencil through it with ink and get some fabulous detail on the skates.
The background at the top is one of Ali Reeves Special touch masks and it has been simply embossed through a machine and inked over. While the ink is still wet cover with Aurora Sparkle embossing powder and heat to fix it. If the ink dries quickly just go over it with a Versamark ink so make it sticky again. This gives a lovely sparkly sheen to the card. A wooden button and bakers twine adds some dimension.
The bottom half of the card has been covered with fabric from Hobby Fun. A piece of ribbon with text on it through the centre finishes the project. It is a 6" by 6" card size and is quite flat to post too.
I think I will make some more of this design for friends at Christmas.
If you have time please leave me a comment and you will be entered into the blog candy draw which will be picked at the end of the 30 days Inspiration.
Thankyou and enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Bye for now
