Bling & Sparkle
I decided to try and make another card for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge to create something with sparkle and bling! It's very CAS, using one of my current favourite colours from PTI called Autumn Rose.
Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Stampin' Up (My Friend)
Other: Ribbon (PTI); Gems (Hero Arts); Buckle gem (from South Africa); clear embossing powder
As you can see, a very simple card to reproduce. The silhouette image is stmaped in black ink and heat embossed. After today I am going to move away from black for a while, I'm not sure why I am using it so much lately! That gem buckle is so old, it's amazing what you can find when you dig around in your old stash! Whoever lands up receiving this card I hope that they recycle the buckle, I am serious! (I still had the price tag on the packet, so please, please, recycle the buckle!!!).
At about this time I should be running my 14 miler training run with my buddie in downtown Austin! I am sure that I am really enjoying it, no jokes, I have been looking forward to this run for some time now!
See you all tomorrow and thank you for stopping by!
