Hello dear bloggers,
Happy first of August!
Thanks so much for your kind comments on my flowers... hang in there, the tutorial is on it's way.
Hope you lovely peeps had a decent weekend.
I made this card on Friday and was thrilled with the way it turned out.
And guess what I have used a brass stencil with my Cuttlebug to emboss the bird. My first time - Yippeeee!
Now I don't have to struggle with my poor fingers to do manual embossing with my lightbox even though there is a certain magic about manual embossing, you know.
Okay enough waffle there... I am going to enter this for Make It Monday Linky Party.
Cardstock - plain white.
Printed paper - kind courtesy Terry's blog candy that I won.
Purplish paper - from my stash , embossed with Cuttlebug and distressed with dark purple stamp pad.
Creamy pearlized paper - from Paddy's market, Sydney, embossed with my brass stencil, coloured in with pearl chalks in pastels and distressed with purple stamp pad.
Ribbon - American Craft
Flowers - Sizzix and Carla craft punches - home made, distressed and glittered.
Note: This card worked like chocolate on my spirits - instant joy which lasted for 2 whole days!!! Lol.
I am off to do my rounds now...
Hugs and have a nice Monday,
