Thank You


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Tracy and her theme is 'Thank You or New Year'. Our winner will receive a lovely prize from Craft Stash.

The background for this one was stamped using Distress Markers and an old Inkylicious stamp, holding it in my hand to stamp just a section of the stamp, circles added using a top of an embossing powder tub dipped into distress ink and used as a stamp. The focal image is Penny Black inked with the same colour Distress Inks and spritzed with water before stamping, a few sequins and Penny Black sentiment.


The above card is very CAS for me but it's growing on me! The flowers are a Sweet Poppy stencil, I used pearlescent white medium, also from Sweet Poppy and sprinkled gold glitter on as soon as I removed the stencil and the medium still wet. The sentiment is the same Penny Black one as above.

Have a good weekend.

Two really lovely cards, the sentiment on both cards is lovely. Super background and colour choice on your first lovely creation and a really perfect CAD/LIM card for your second card, this certainly glitters and it is gold.

Ciao Brenda, entrambe le tue card sono piene di dolcezza e di eleganza. Non potrei scegliere una preferita, sono entrambe bellissime e così diverse! Il sentiment è stupendo!!
La prima card mi ricorda un'antica stampa giapponese. Mi piace tantissimo l'effetto striato sulla parte superiore, con i cerchi e i bellissimi fiori arancioni che sembrano uscire dalla carta!!
E quei fiori glitterati che hai fatto con lo stencil nella seconda card sono davvero meravigliosi, sembrano fatati!! Una CAS perfetta!!!
Qui piove a dirotto, ma nella mia zona niente danni, per ora. Spero che da te ci sia il sole per rallegrarti un po' e spero anche che ci siano buone notizie per tuo marito.
Ti abbraccio

Greetings from a very sunny Dubai Brenda. Two beautiful cards and I like the way you made the background of the first- plus I always love that flower. The CAS design with the stencil looks fabulous and I can just imagine the sparkle of the gold.

Vicky Hayes said...

These are both gorgeous Brenda and I love how you reach for anything to stamp with, including the lid of the embossing powder - a stamper after my own heart! The Penny Black flowers are stunning, especially in those colours and the background is beautiful. The second card is my favourite though - I like a CAS card - and I love how you've created the glittery strings of flowers with that stencil. Vicky x

Cath Wilson said...

Both gorgeous, Brenda, but the Stencil paste one is really beautiful. I've always loved that PB stamp, too.
