- 12½cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- Offcuts of some super duper magenta mirri card, white card and black card - no new sheets were broken out in the making of this card!! Yee Haa!
- I stamped the clear stamp (Brocade by WOW!) using IndigoBlu "flitter glu" and a piece of cut and dry (as a stamp pad - I find it better to apply the glu to the cut and dry with a spatula and then pat on the stamp. To dab the cut and dry in the flitter glu and then dab on the stamp often overloads the stamp and blurs the image/gilding) before applying the gilding flakes and then burnished using their scoochy! My panel was then matted on to the magenta mirri card
- Inkadinkado clear stamp (from their now discontinued Birthday Fun set - see it on e-bay here) stamped on to white card using Versafine onyx black ink.
- Distress Ink in spun sugar sponged on to the white panel to soften the stark white before matting on to black card and then magenta
- Crystal stickles applied to the twirls on the stamped image
- 12½cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching envelope
- Fizzy Moon clear image and sentiment stamped on to white card using Memento tuxedo black ink
- Alcohol markers to colour
- X-Cut corner round used on image panel and black matting layer (again, an offcut, no new pieces of card were used on this card)
- Bakers twine in black/white and red/white, wrapped around my card and tied in an off centre knot
- Three iridescent snowflakes (courtesy of Michael's!) adhered with glossy accents (the Go To glue!)
- Crystal stickles to highlight the white "fur"
Last evening, as it cooled down, the husband and I headed out in the car .... in search of some gromits. We managed quite a few but I'll share them over a couple of days .... the first one we found was outside of the Redgrave Theatre in Clifton.....
|# 50 -Sugar Plum Gromit - artist: Celia Birtwell|
The next one proved tricky as the map was wrong .... but we tracked him down!
|#51 - A Mandrill's Best Friend Gromit - artist: Vivi Cuevas|
I couldn't work out why this one was called SHEEPDOG but .... he's got Shaun the sheep on his rump!

Next was one of my favourites ...
