Good morning everybody. Hope that you are all well and that Hazel is on final approach to Glasgow.
I'm typing this at stupid o'clock so please forgive any spelling mistakes. Mr Duck is probably snoring away in his hotel in Dunfermline for work so I'm not eager to climb into a cold, empty bed just yet.
Glad you are thinking of dusting down your mica pots. I'm loving the stuff. Wendy, get yourself round to John's and pinch some.
Sue, hope that decorating's finished or I know what you're doing today lol!!!
Welcome back to Jackie. Glad you had a fab time. Bet you're all bronzed and glowing.
Crikey Lesley,and there's me usually moaning at £2.99 p&p from C&C.
Now, back to today's card. There is only the one pic today. This is another of the cards I submitted as part of my application for the CE DT.
Its mats and layers of black and white PMD card and Limetree Crafts Gold Shimmer card. This is similar to the soft gold card sold elsewhere but about half the price. Its 300gsm and double sided and lovely. Unfortunately, Limetree don't do mail order as yet so I stock up at craft shows. They also do lots of other fab cardstock at £1 for a pack of 10 A4 sheets. . . . . .bargain!
The frame is the outer die of SB Majestic Labels 25 and the SB Bracket Borders. The middle dies are the two smallest SB Decorative Labels Eight. On the larger one, I went over the edges with my Versamark Pen, dunked it into gold embossing powder and heat set.
The background was done by stamping a Kanban Rose stamp onto some gold shimmer card and heat embossing in gold. This was then run through the GC with a Crafts Too heart embossing folder.
All assembled as you see. Sadly, not a winner for CE but I like it and hope you may like it too.
Well, that's me off to try another mug of camomile before attempting bed. I normally only see one 1 o'clock in a day and its pm rather than am hahaha!!! You can just imagine what state I'm going to be in the morning . . . . . . . well, later this morning I should say.
Have a good day folks.
