Prize – a $20 voucher!

My card features one of my very first stamps and one that has been used for many special occasions over the years. PB- VIctorian Love woodblock stamp.

After silver heat embossing the stamp on some vellum, I coloured the images with Distress Ink watercolouring. As the sections are so very small, I coloured it on the front using the embossing as a well for the ink rather than the back which is usual for a larger, more open image.

After trimming the panel it was layered on white card so help the images show up. It was then added to a navy card base.

The sentiment is from PB – Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set and silver embossed. I selected this sentiment as I haven’t yet decided what occasion to use it for.

Please head over to our blog to  check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
