Art Deco and a surprise for me!
This is for an order with a specific colour combo and style - Art deco and Black and White. The image is a Debbi Moore stamp and the paper is from the Capsule range from Papermania, as always the large roses are handmade and the small white ones are from my stash, so are the feathers.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
1. Creative Inspirations - challenge # 33 - Congratulations
2. By The Cute And Girly - May - Celebrations
3. Papertake Weekly - Shiny, Sparkly and Special (the roses are stickled with star dust and my image is embossed with black embossing powder giving it a shine)
I had such a surprise on Sunday, my husband took me to our best craft shop that we have in Leeds, and they had a Cuttlebug on offer with 4 sets of Nestabilities all for £99. Now he knows that is my dream item and I have wanted one since I started crafting.
Guess what.....................He had got a Bonus at work on Friday and he has bought me it, I'm over the moon, can't believe I've finally got one. I don't have any embossing folders yet but saving the pennies as we speak. But I did get large ovals and scalloped ovals, and also large circles and scalloped circles for my 4 sets in the offer. Watch this space my cards won't have images in boring squares anymore, although I enjoyed stamping edges and inking and thinking up ways to make them more interesting.
It is Sir Stampalot's second challenge, it's the month of May and what better theme than Butterflies and Blossoms, a whole range of Tim Holtz stash is on offer this month, go on pop on over and take a look.
Hope everyone has a good week
