Time May be a Great Healer

Hi Bloggers.

This is the last Ethel & Murray card that I have to share with you - for the moment at least. I do have some demo cards to give away so watch out for those.

For the background I popped some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I popped it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked all over with Mustard Seed Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Well Adjusted Women Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks and cut it out. I stamped the image again and cut out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I inked through the die with Mustard Seed. I popped the coloured image on top using 3d foam pads.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and inked round the edges of the panel with Mustard Seed.

I ran a strip of Foundations Floral Dream paper through the Grand Calibur with an inset from the Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Postage Stamp die set. I popped it onto some pale yellow card and put a dot of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl in the centre of each flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Golden Pearl PVA around the edges.

Hope you've enjoyed Ethel & Murray. Something different tomorrow - what will it be? Don't know myself yet!

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. I wonder where Ethel is off to! Perhaps she has to get glammed up to take Murray's mind off golf and give her some attention. Just love Ethel's thoughts on the racks of time.
