Kraft for Addicted to Stamps

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have had a lovely day, I have.
I spent another lovely Friday afternoon at Davina's in Purley.
It will be her birthday on Sunday so Sylvie and I popped along with cards, flowers and flapjacks to help her celebrate, even if it is a few days early.
We actually spent far longer there than either of us had anticipated. That's what happens when you get amongst good company, but it has meant that I haven't managed to get any crafting done at all today.
Never mind, maybe I will manage some tomorrow when I get back from the show at Farnborough. I will be loaded down with crafty ideas I'm sure, if not crafty stash lol.
My card tonight has been made to enter into the challenge at Addicted to Stamps where they are looking for Kraft. As you can tell I have been having way too much fun with this lovely Poinsettia stamp set from Woodware.
I stamped and embossed the larger flowers onto a piece of Kraft card using Eggplant pigment ink and clear embossing powder. I then added some more images using second generation ink and Terracotta and Evergreen pigment ink. All the colours came from one of the Colourbox Q's.
The sentiment has been stamped using Gathered Twigs Distress ink, and then I have sponged the entire panel with more ink (Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo Distress inks) to give it a more distressed look.
I added some Faux stitching to the edge of the panel using a fine black pen, and then added Platinum Glitter Glue to the flower centres.
Need to get some sleep now as I have lots of walking to do tomorrow at the show. I can't wait. I honestly can't remember the last time I was at a show as a member of the public so it will be quite a new experience lol.
Have a great weekend.
