Dream, imagine, believe, wish.............



Good morning Peeps, I hope everybody is OK and those of you with the dreaded flu which seems to be everywhere at the moment are keeping warm and are soon on the mend. Welcome also to my new followers, it's lovely to have you on board.

I've just one share which is one of my samples for Stamp Addicts Create and Craft show later this month using some of the new stamps which you will find on their website under new products here.

For this card I used the Ironworks Background on the base card stamping and embossing with detail clear and then distressing with TH tea dye and Victorian velvet. For the main panel I sponged the same two colours and then randomly stamped the Ironworks, etched heart and dream words.......... I just love the word set as it is so versatile and I embossed the words with detail copper. The mannequin ( which I stamped with the Ironworks background) and flower are TH dies and the swirls are Memory Box. 

That's it from me for today, off to do some 'proper' work now but hope to get a crafty session in later

Gorgeous card Brenda, Ive discovered a problem with looking at your blog in Firefox it makes it so small and impossible for me to see. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Kat said...

Beautiful Brenda. Love how you've done the words, the detail copper works really well with the other colours.

I'm not achieving much this week apart from my DT card for Saturday coming. I did hastily make 6 of the cards for the communion tokens yesterday. Haven't made any for ages as they were finished on ebay ages ago. Can't complain as we made quite a lot of money from the tokens which were just sitting doing nothing! Back on ebay again and set have already been sent to the USA, Australia and........Inverness!

Take care,

Kat xx
