Hi there lovely blog friends and fellow blogsters - and a special hello to my two new followers Christine and Julie, I really do appreciate you checking out my blog and my 'offerings'.
I don't know about the weather near you but it has been bloomin' cold here and we have had more snow this year than we have had for a long time. The birds have been fed at least twice a day although the little divils are back on their Sainsbury Basics bread not the Kingsmill!!! They also have dried worms, bird seed, peanuts, fat balls and bird pellets! I don't mind them popping in for a feed and a bath (they have tepid water in their bath and bowl in this weather!!!) but I do draw the line at their 'funny' business which they seem to do on the garage roof! Mind you the snow has stopped all that for the time being - makes me blush!
Anyway enough of my birdy antics and on to my card! I found this project when I was (still am by the way!!) clearing out my drawers and things. I did this at a workshop I attended ages and ages ago. The technique was bleaching and I absolutely loved it. I haven't done it since though - which is typically moi - but I shall have to have another go. I stamped the image onto the card using bleach then, when it was dry, did two images either side using Versamark and gold embossing powder. Must admit it looks a lot more detailed in the daylight.
I matted the green card onto a piece of gold satin mirri card then onto a piece of black card and finally onto another piece of toning green card. I used the same toning green card for the border piece and label.
I quite like the effect of the green on black - especially as I don't tend to use much green card. I hope you like it! If you have left me a comment I must tell you I am really grateful. You are all so kind to me and give a boost to my confidence.
Anyway I hope you are managing to do some crafting in this awful weather, we have had a little more snow again today!! I do need to make some cards for a Guest DT spot coming up on Christmas Cards All Year Round - wow am I getting adventurous or what! I am usually so backwards in coming forwards! LOL!! Mind you I really am enjoying being on Lady Anne's Challenges DT, it is really interesting.
Lots of big crafty hugs to you all out there, I'm off to catch up with your blogs now.
See you soon
