Well can you believe it – I have actually MADE a card or two today!
I decided I was going to have a play with some of the things I have bought and not got around to trying out – and I really enjoyed it!
My friend Ann said in a text to me “You are one of those clever people who experiment and great things turn up” its a great statement but oh so far from the truth!
I am not a clever person – like all crafters I ended up with a bin of “waste” as what was in my head didn't always go to plan in practice
But anyway – here is one of my makes!!!
I used a Craft Work Cards Elegant Square Easel Card – I had planned on embossing the card using an M-Bossibilties folder but had a dim hour and just couldn't get it done – so changed my mind and instead I laid on of my masks over the card and put it through the cuttlebug to get a light embossed pattern.
I used a Brilliance Archival ink pad in Twilight to skim along the embossed area to give a shabby look....in shades of pinks through to purple!
I hope you like this card – as I said it was a chance to play – I haven't really done much with the masks before and certainly haven't tried the Brilliance ink pads...but I will do now!!!
See you next time...
