Background

Friday, 23 April 2010

Hello everyone, I made this card for a friend's birthday. I won't tell you how ridiculously late it was when I finished it - & then went to the post box to make sure I caught the first collection lol.
The stamp is made by Hampton Art & is called Travel Abroad. I watercoloured it using Distress Inks, then stamped the border around it (Clarity Stamp clever corner stamp & matching trailing stamp) & distressed that with inks. I used Distress Inks on the Clarity Stamp sentiment (which is one I know my friend likes), then spritzed it with Copper Glimmer Mist before crumpling it up thoroughly while it was still damp. I also sprayed Irridescent Gold, & Copper Glimmer Mist onto the flower which I had taken off a stem of artificial flowers. Background papers are by Papermania. Hope she likes it.
Thanks for looking & any comments you may wish to leave.
