Stolen...

Happy Saturday,

I am at Inspirations in Preston today and tomorrow demonstrating for the 9th Birthday of the shop.  Theres loads of demonstrators at the event and even cake ( as part of the Mcmilon Coffee Morning)  Pop in and say Hi if you are around.  I will be demonstrating lots of itemise from my new ranges Including the Textures pats and some new Izink Pigment ink pads!

One of the cards and techniques I will be demonstrating today is this one which I an Idea I stole ( witghj agreement) from the fabulous Martine.  I made this based on a card she sent me a picture of ( which she has promised as my Christmas Card!)

I made the background using  the round media plate, izink dye based inks and my Winter Trees clear stamp set.  I stamped the tree in the centre using the Silver Pigment ink pad that I will be demonstrating this weekend.  Next  I framed this using my snowflake circle embossing folder by cutting the centre out first then embossing the gold dust card ( from Limetree crafts) I added a thin border of silver mirror card around the stamping and the embossing.

I finished with a bow and a selection of filigree cut in the gold dust and silver mirror card ( all from the christmas foliage set i had on my last Hochanda show)  I added silver pearl dots and layered with more of the gold dust and mirror card.

Enjoy...

    Happy Sunday morning to you John and to all your followers.
    A delightful card you are showing today. I was born and brought up in Preston and Coppull is only a half hour drive away but I have no one to take me there and I never go out alone, (sob,sob) have fun and then rest up eh? Cheers!
