Colourful Best Wishes.

Evening Everyone
Wasn't it lovely to see the sunshine when you opened the curtains this morning? I always feel much more eager to get on when the sun is shining outside instead of curling up and sleeping like I seem to have done for most of last week.
My card tonight has been made for a friends birthday. She may well get to see it here first as she is currently on holiday, but I'm sure she won't mind me sharing it with you.
The colourful background panel has been created using an 'Ironed Resist' technique which I taught many years ago at the Craft Barn.
The leaves have been stamped and embossed onto white card using versamark ink and clear embossing powder.
Colour has been added using Kaliedacolour dye based inkpads and then the panel has been placed between several sheets of copy paper and ironed.
The heat from the iron melts the embossing powder leaving a lovely white impression.
I have used this as a background to an old Stamps Happens image.
I also painted some of the leaves and branches with thin undiluted bleach to remove the colour.
I think that this could be considered suitably spring like to go with the weather today. Lets hope my post tomorrow won't need to be another Christmas card to go with snow lol.
Have a great weekend.
