A Few Things

Hello there ...

Firstly, I wanted to say a big thank you to Kerin at The Card Concept for picking my card as a winner this week ... That's so nice and well done to all the winners

Sorry if I haven't been around your blogs for a few days ... I have a shoulder and wrist problem... Repetitive strain injury from being on the computer too much and it's really painful.

Anyways I wanted to just share a Christmas card and then I have to pack ... I'm off for a party night on a cruise ship... It's berthed here in the port of Liverpool and for one night we will be staying over and enjoying the festivities... Just a little something different...

So here's another one of the many cards I've done lately


I cut a lot of those little wreaths and have made various cards using them so be prepared to see more lol!
I sponged this wreath with ink to match it to my paper and I added a wooden burlap covered stag's head  to which I added some 'snow'


I also used red sequins to pick out the stars in the paper... One thing I love about having the Misti tool is that I can revisit old techniques and get a good finish ... On this card I used a dye ink to stamp the sentiment and using the Misti I could easily stamp over it with Versamark to clear emboss it. I'd never line the stamp up properly otherwise...


...and it means I don't have to buy every colour embossing powder.

Ok... that's it for now ... I have to get this card in the post together with a birthday card and then pack

Have a beautiful day ... I hope to be back with you soon

Hugs
