So guys this was me playing around with a card for Kirsti's birthday (see pictures below).....I'd got a new stamp whilst in Howdens at Inverness and just had to try it out. I know Kirsti likes her altered items so it seemed like a perfect opportunity to work outside my regular comfort zone!
The stamp is PaperArtsy One penny plate 4 and I have used black soot Distress ink together with Glimmer mists silver,turquoise and raven from Tattered Angels. I also used blue and green pearl powders and Ranger glossy accents on the butterflies. The flower was made with white tissue paper and glimmer mist punched with my SU scallop. The swirls behind are made using a Spellbinder Shapeabilites fancy tag split in two, together with gingham ribbon and turquoise thread from my stash.....all put together with a jewel brad.
I really enjoyed getting mucky and must try this more often...same can't be said for my floor but atleast it is sparkling now, lol. :)
