It is very rare, in fact virtually unheard of for me to make a card just because I want to. Everything seems always to be destined for a particular class or demo, or is made to send to a specific person.
Well all that changed as soon as I saw the challenge over at Tuesday Taggers - Inspired by a poem.
When some years later I saw it as a stamp I just had to have it.
I would also like to enter the Stampin for the Weekend challenge where Anything Goes.
I have made the main panel with Penny Black 4102K Snow Dust available over at Sir Stampalot.
I stamped it with versamark ink and then sponged distress inks over it. The poem has been stamped onto vellum which has been attached to the card using Woodware Miracle Adhesive film. This stuff really is magic. It is absolutely the best thing I have found for using with vellum.
The main card has also had Snow Dust stamped onto it only this time I embossed it with white powder.
Sponging distress inks onto it makes the images 'Pop'.
The main panel was made in the same way, only this time I stamped and embossed the poem directly on to it.
Remember 'It's never a mistake it's always an opportunity', you taught me well Julie Hickey lol.
On this card I mounted the main panel onto some Bazzill Swiss Dots card and strips of background paper.
I think the first card is my favourite of the two, but as it was difficult to choose I decided that I wouldn't even try.
Tomorrow will be difficult, as it always has been over the last few years, but I will keep busy and remember all the good times.
I hope you have All had a good Bank Holiday. Ours has been spent washing. The family are back from their holidays and so the house resembles a Chinese laundry at the moment with washing hanging from any available place. Where is all the sunshine when you want it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Love and hugs
