Here I have started with three layers of UTEE, then a coat of gold, yellow and sapphire and stamped into it using Stayzon black and Hobby Art SC1732E, a lovely weeping willow and it's first outing ......... yes, it was one of those still in my box of stash picked from my last crafting sortie. When I use UTEE I like to keep the rest of the card fairly simple to allow the beauty of the enamelled piece to show through, so I have added a simple greeting using Art Impression G3130, one of those used for samples on Sir Stampalots Scenic Watercolours C&C programme. The corner elements are cut on the cuttlebug using nesties and I added swirl embellies which are gold, lightly rubbed over with Stayzon black.

Rosie Dees Challenge
Good morning everyone, the sun continues to shine and the garden is a huge drawm, but decided it's time I got down to some serious work ........ you can have too much of a good thing. My first project is for Rosie Dees challenge which I only found the other day and liked their take on using different techniques. This week is Triple Embossing, a technique I really like and often use, especially at demos as it always gives that wow factor.
