I can't believe I haven't posted anything for almost a week and there is really no excuse but for the fact I am on annual leave this week and have found outside jobs to occupy me. However a couple of challenges tickled my fancy so last night I had a little play with some stamp sets and an embossing folder that came with magazines and made this.
I am quite shocked that it's mine actually and I did struggle to do something out of the norm, but, I am really quite pleased. The tag was hand cut from the same milk coloured card as the base and then embossed. It looked a bit bland so I got out the old Versamark ink pad and dusted the raised areas with cosmic shimmer powder and added some gems. The sentiment was stamped in London fog to match the paper.
The large butterly (also a freebie Indigo Blu I think) was stamped onto more patterned paper and then...wait for it....I used crackle glaze over the top!! The bottle has been sat on my desk for years and that was the first time I had opened it. This picture actually shows the cracks quite nicely and if you look really closely I did manage to capture the shimmer on camera. Some shabby ribbon and a little charm were the finishing touches I chose.
These challenges were the inspiration behind this card

( Technique and product, a tag and lace for me)
I won't be away for too long as I have a card to share tomorrow so see you then!! xx
