Hello to my blogging friends out there.  Having a bit of a week this week, so I am only just posting my entry for Hels' Sunday Stamper Challenge.   I don't want to go into it right now - nothing too major, just upsetting - so I will keep this short.

Never having tried this before I thought I would keep it simple, but I loved diecutting the images out of metal foil. I blobbed a little alcohol ink over the diecuts in the middle of the horizontal and vertical lines just to mess them a little to match the stamp.  Bless my hubby, he was photographing the card for me and came rushing in thinking that he had smudged the ink - I could see the relief on his face when I said it was supposed to have the 'smudgy' effect.


Lace Doily Motif
Moroccan Motif/Accent
Scalloped Labels One
Regal M-Bossibility folder
Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Milk card from Sue Wilson's card pack
Lilac Bazzill Bling card
Sheena Douglass Sentiment stamp

As I said above, I am entering this in Hels' Shiny Happy People Challenge - if I have done the link correctly.

Hugs to you all - sorry I haven't been by for a day or three - will be back shortly.

Thanks for dropping in.

  11. Hi Sue,
    Another pretty card. I love the use of the inks on the foil to give it a mottled effect. You must forgive hubby for his mistake, at least he was honest by telling you, even if he hadn't really done anything. What a sweetheart he is.
    Hugs Linda
