well it's been a while since i last blogged. . . i've been busy, stuff like housework and eating cake.
anyway today i had to make a couple of cards. 1 for my brother who's birthday is today whopps! sorry pete it's in the post. well it will be in the morning.
i used a page from an old recipe book from the 1930's and aged it a bit more with vintage photo distress ink. the clock image is from elusive images. i brought a set at 'make it' for half price, wow. it has a lot of old images like cars and men. the image is embossed with shiney black powder. then i die cut the outside circle in shiney black card. the buttons at the top are also a new purchase from make it. there was a lot of new die cut producers, these button were from 'joy', i cut them in brown cardboard packaging and embossed them in black and silver.
the second card is for a fellow stamper who has just had an op, so get well to her
the background has been stamped through sequin waste with 3 different colours of distress inks. the bottom stamp is from dovecraft (holly swirls but you dont notice the holly). i wanted to make the card quite simple so it just has a simple message and flower.
i am still working on a stamp for my daughters wedding invitation
