Soggy Saturday!


Is it soggy and wild with you this morning? Oh My Goodness, it's been raining a lot this past week and I feel for all those in the flood warning areas living on lower ground. More rain coming today so please take all precautions and stay safe.

Having been in a crafting desert all week - what's with one blooming Christmas tag since last Sunday!!!???? Of course, with Saturday seeing a new challenge over on the Simply Less Is More blog  there was always the possibility that the drought was over!!! And the new challenge? It's: GLAMOUR AND GLITZ!

Materials used:
  • 300gsm white deckle edged card and matching envelope
  • Black card for matting
  • Rubber Stampede image stamped using Versafine onyx black ink - reckon she looks glamorous - don't you?
  • With a Quickie glue pen I drew over the glamorous young lady's boots, handbag clasp, necklace and earring and set aside to let it dry to clear and tacky before laying a sheet of copper foil over the image and burnishing.
  • Additionally, I added a quick zig zag of stickles in frosted lace (to ground the image) and two faux crystal gemstones to complete the glamour and glitz look of the otherwise monochrome card
Hope you think it works! And now ..... how did yesterday's tag turn out? Well this morning I took my ink duster (thanks again, Wynneth) and some tumbled glass ink and added colour round the outside, A Hero Arts sentiment in Memento Paris dusk ink and then drew round the tag as close to the edge as I could manage using the frosted lace stickles ....

Have a fabulous Saturday - stay indoors and craft if the weather's as filthy where you are!

Your card worked very well Kathy, love the glitzy boots.
We've had 2 days of sunshine so far, which is heavenly, but very windy this morning. Hope you're not getting too soaked.
Thanks for all your lovely visits and comments.
Take care.
