Here's today's card -
I dusted the front of a Coconut White Card Blank with an Anti-Static Bag. I then stamped the smallest flower from the Woodware Bold Blooms Delilah Stamp Set several times using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS True White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set.
I added a piece of Scotch Removable Tape on the backof my card along the fold - this reduced the risk of getting ink all over the back of my card. I inked over my stamped flowers using Chic Pumpkin, Decadent Wine and Pum Cobbler Cosmic Shimmer Colour Clouds applying the ink with Smoothies. I removed any excess ink from the embossed lines using a piece of Kitchen Roll.
I misted some water into my hands and clapped over the card. The water bleaches away the ink. I blotted off with some Kitchen Roll.
I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Imagination Verse Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I added the same 3 Colour Couds Inks as before and clapped over with water. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles and added a mat of Coconut White Card using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles Set B.

I thought you might like to meet our new cat, Ed. We got him just over 3 weeks ago from the RSPCA with his sister Ella. We took Ella back unfortunately as there was no way that our cat, Smokey, was going to get on with her. Ella settled in really quickly and from the outset it was clear that she was dominant which did not bode well with Smokey. Ella didn't like her brother much either which is another reason why we took her back. We would have loved to have kept her as she was so cute and loving but, we think, she would be better in a home where she was the only cat.
Anyway, here's a few pics of Ed (named after Ed Sheeran methinks - not by me, by the nurses at the vets) -
Thanks for stopping by.
