Paw Prints

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by randomly inking through the Stripy Spots Mask using Pumice Stone Distress Ink. Then, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Kitten Treats Background, again using Pumice Stone. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Eternity Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Pumice Stone. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the surface. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped Willow onto a piece of Slate Grey Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Innsbruck Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Pawprints on Your Heart Clear Stamp Set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles.

I tied a bow using Pewter Solid Satin Centre Band Ribbon and added a Heart Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Just to let you know that today is your last chance to book onto Thursday's worskhops in Kettering. So far the afternoon workshop seems to be most popular with just a couple of spaces available. The morning worskhop actually has more techniques than the afternoon one, really not to be missed. Here's a photo of a different colour scheme for the morning workshop -

Full details of all the workshops can be found on the workshop page of this blog (in the top menu).

Also, a polite reminder that I have a bunch of stuff up for grabs on ebay here.

Thanks for stopping by.
