An Experiment !

Hi, after managing today to complete my Art -  Works in Progress (which will post at PPF on Friday) I had some time to experiment with a bit of stamping.

This was originally a square card which I rounded off on a whim.........and quite liked the effect.  The inside is stamped also but was very difficult to photograph, mainly the left hand side as the flowers are scarlet but they have come out very dark in the photo.

Products used:  Various inks, clear embossing powder, Modge Podge and the Dress was painted with Copper Acrylic, unfortunately you cannot see the fab sheen this gives on the photo.

Stamps used:  Lost Coast Designs, Crafty Individuals, Darcie's and T J Designs.

I hope you all have had a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend.  Thank you for popping by and all the great support you give me.  Take care and have a Happy Week, hugs Annette x

Woo Hoo, just found out I won the Facebook Happy Daze Challenge with Butterfly Boy, am over the moon with joy. Thank you Moira.  This definitely needs to be celebrated with some chocolate tonight.....anyone want a piece.........!!!
