I stamped the camera with black Versasine ink, fussy cut it out when in was dry and attached to the card with 3D glue gel.

That's all from me today. Thank you for stopping by.

Fancy flamingo

Good Saturday afternoon folks

You find me sat in my dressing gown trying to motivate myself into getting a shower. Some days my mind says "go on, stop wasting precious time" but my body says "no can't be bothered.....". This is one of these days I think. I have learnt from experience to listen to my body - it is usually right!
I thought today I would show you something on the opposite end of the spectrum from yesterday's card - 
Very girly don't you think. For this card I have used - 
  • black core'dinations
  • bright pink mirri card
  • Retro garden 3D embossing folder from Crafter's Companion
  • Gemini special day stamp and die set
  • Gemini silhouette flamingo die set

This card started as me playing with some new dies and embossing folders but I was so happy with the result that I made it into a card. These new silhouette dies look like being one of my favourites - I have lots of ideas buzzing around my head of how to use them. What a pity time and motivation is lacking at the moment.

Thank you for stopping by today.
