Thanks !!! :-)

Hi all ,, this week it is my turn to choose the theme over on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge and I chose


I should have chosen Happy Birthday as it is Hubby's birthday today and I made him a very quick card late last night ,,, not sure I will blog it ,,, not one of me best efforts ,, but it's the thought that counts eh !! :-)

We are sponsored this week by Stitchy Bear Stamps so a fab prize of 5 digi images for one lucky entrant.

I have been joining in with Jennifer McGuire’s Inspiration Showcase class and have been experimenting with techniques this week :-)

I inked a Hero Arts background stamp with Faded Jeans distress ink, I then ‘kissed’ it with Hero Arts swirly stamp to remove some ink, then sprayed the stamp with pearl glimmer mist and then stamped it onto some plain white card ,,, it does look fab IRL ,, very shimmery. I then stamped a Judikins butterfly with Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder, coloured with distress ink then cut it out, smothered with rock candy stickles and when dry popped it on there with glossy accents to the body and pop dots under the wings. Think thats it ,,,, oh yes ,, sentiment is Hero arts too and so are all the lovely gems Smile

Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration Jen ,,,not that she will see this but better to say thanks and be safe eh !! :-)

The DT have really made some wonderful cards for your inspiration so pop over to the TPC to see them :-)
