( it seems the first two lines of my post are not visible ( so nice to be back ! ) So what it actually says for those who dont have X ray eyes is : They say creativity is therapy but after my return from my very sad visit to London I am finding it extremely difficult sitting behind my desk and creating .
The Fashionable Stamping challenge is one that I have been following for quite some time and consists of some of my favourite and very talented blogging friends, which is most probably one of the reasons I have not taken part before. As individuals they are amazingly talented artists but when you group them all together well it can be quite daunting for us newcomers ! Their theme is ” I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” but we are advised that we can use any colour we like phew ! I do prefer the bold ones as you will see by my cards.
The second challenge I am entering with the same cards of course is for Crafty Card Makers and their theme is ” Embossing ” I do love embossing and it usually features somewhere on most of my creations.
Please excuse the rubbish photo’s I was in a hurry to catch my plane and upon my return I find that they have been sold ! so you will just have to use your wonderfully vivid imaginations!
This one I have used the emboss resit technique on the bauble and then given it a good lick of Studio multi medium gloss . The embossing around the sentiment I actually gave it about four layers and up close it was gorgeous and thick and looked a little bit like old metal ( this is the bit where you use your imaginations ! )
The obligitory Marie close up !
will try my best and pop by and say hello I have missed you all and look forward to seeing what you have all been up to !
