Happy Days........

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a good week.

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads and stamped with versafine black onyx. The background is distressed with pumice stone and the edges of this and all my papers have been edged with walnut stain. I have added some delish material that my sweet friend Chris sent to me on my card. Thank you so much Chris I love it!


I have decorated the inside of my card too.


Here is the inside left. I have used Magnolia's Dohickeys dies for the swirl and the border.

Here is the inside right. The square for a sentiment to be written on is a nestie die. The swirl stamps are Prima.


Here is a close up of the flower detail. I have added star dust glitter glue for some lovely sparkle.


I will say goodbye now. Thank you so very much for visiting with me, and for all of your comments I say a huge thank you. You absolutely make my day you are very kind.

I will be putting this card on Ebay later if anyone is interested.

Have a wonderful weekend!

love
kim x



inks used
tattered rose, antique linen, walnut stain, black soot, bundled sage, mustard seed, aged mahogany, vintage photo

Your card is so beautiful. I love the shading around your stamp. I have to work on that effect myself but I really love the look of it. I'm always afraid I'm going to mess it up after it took so long to color the image in. Just gotta practice before coloring in the image.
