Before I post my card I just want to say that I am so very sorry I have been away from Blogland for so long, both posting and, more importantly, commenting on your wonderful blogs. I am very intermittent anyway due to mine and my husbands ill health, but recently, a very good friend took a sharp decline with her cancer and died very much earlier than was expected and it really hit us all hard. I am going to try and get back to the crafting world and just wanted to let you know I am still here and that I appreciate your patience and support so very much, thank you!
My card is one I made for my brother's birthday last month but haven't put on the blog so thought I would do that today.
I used the resist technique for the background. I inked the large (very old) wooden rubber stamp with Versamark ink then embossed with white detail powder. I first used an anti static pad and took the card to the stamp as it is such a large stamp. I then inked over the whole piece with various blue Distress Inks then wiped over the top with a baby wipe to remove any ink from the embossing. The stars were die cut, the first three are from a free die set that came with a magazine and the two tiny ones are punched. The sentiment is from a little clear set, not sure what make, and again embossed with white detail powder.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
The Craft Barn - Blue or Blues
Pixie's Snippets Playgrouned - use snippets (my stars and sentiments are all from card in my bits box)
bizzy Becs - Anything Goes
These are all fab blogs, worth a visit for sure!
Thank you for popping by - I appreciate it so much! Take care. Christine xxx
