Never Give Up

Hi Bloggers.

I'm heading over to Stamp Addicts in Kempston this morning as I have a table at their Table Top Sale. Be sure to pop by if you're in the area. Myself and the other tables will have lots of bargains. Sale is on 10am till 3pm.

Here's today's card -

For my background, I used a piece of Watercolour Card. I placed the Large Polka Dots Mask on top and inked through with CS Decadent Wine Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I moved the mask slightly and then inked through the mask again with CS Plum Cobbler Colour Cloud. I inked around the edges with Decadent Wine and then matted onto Black Card and Coconut White Card.

I stamped the largest flower in the Woodware Bold Blooms : Delilah Stamp Set twice using Onyx Black Versafine Ink onto Watercolour Card. I coloured them in using Decadent Wine using my Smoothie. I cut them out and then inked around the edges again to hide any white bits. I popped them onto my card using CE Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Imagine Verse Stamp Set using the Versafine Ink.

I completed my card by adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner.

Backin stock over on my website are the Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicators. Only £2.65 for a pack of 3.

Lisa Horton has just released some new Christmas Stamps - available to order on my website in the Christmas section here.
