Just Because.......




Hello All,

I hope you have been enjoying the weekend......

For This Card I have used a fab sugar nellie stamp, which I have coloured with copics and then added 3 different Martha Stewart Glitters.

The background mat...I have used the resist technique...using a Kanban stamp, and distress ink - Tumbled Glass and Faded Jean. then I oversprayed it, and the background paper with a Mica powder.

I have actually pulled the sewing machine out to do real stitching......normally I cant be bothered with the hassle and just do faux stitching.....because the paper warped slightly with the mica spray.....I distressed all the edges to make it look like I planned it to turn out that way!!! LOL!!

Finally a little organza Ribbon and a few punched out snowflakes....and then I stamped the sentiment.

I am not completely sure about this one....not really liking anything I have made for the past wee while...anyhoo....

This is my entry for:
