An Oldie but a Goodie...

Hi everyone, I hope your weekend is going well so far. Shan and I spent our Saturday in the craft room (I was stamping, Shan on the laptop) while we listened to The Gunslinger (Stephen King) audio book. I've read & loved the Dark Tower series, it's tied for my favourite series of all time - but listening to it in audio book format is delightful, it makes stamping time even more relaxing!

I'm finishing off my Easter cards, and decided to pull out an older set - Petal Prints. I don't sell my retired sets, I never buy a set I don't love so keep them all - and it's so much fun to dust off a set and have it feel new again!

I made this card for my Nana. I used the last of Silke's great challenges at OCC - This was a really fun sketch to work with, perfect for the set I wanted to use. It's probably only just visible if you enlarge the photo - but the background layer is all sparkly from Pearl Glimmermist and the flowers have a bit of shine courtesy of a glitter pen.

Super simple inside for this one - just a shadowy repetition of the flower image - I stamped off (ink, stamp onto scrap paper then on your project) once to get this effect.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
