You Outta Be in Pictures...........


Hi, November's theme at Happy Daze is Brighten up the Month.  The new stamps 'Picture Star' by Artistic Outpost certainly brightened up my month.


''Down on your heels
Up on your toes
That's the way to do the Varsity Drag.''

Stamped the images on Speciality Stamping Paper with Archival Coffee Ink, adding some Distress Inks to give an aged appearance, the rest is simply matting and layering.  A lovely simple card to make which I think looks quite glamorous despite not having any embellishments.

I would like to enter this card into the Artistic Outpost November Challenge.

Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the theme this month and don't forget the prize of a £15 voucher.

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday, take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x
