Just a little Flourish

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors, I trust I fine you all well?.

Well Friday has arrived and the end of another week and
here comes the weekend yippee.
A warm welcome goes to Wendy my new follower, thank you so much
for you support everyone. You are all stars and I really do value you all.

Off to mums today, domestic chores calling, then home after lunch and
hopefully in my craft room, playing Whoops I mean creating .

Today's card has been make using one of the new Crafters Companion
embossing folder Yes I know I should  not have done it but
what does a girl do when your heart say Go On stop listening
to your head - Well you stop listening that's what and hey ho
the full set landed on my doorstep hey presto.

DETAILS

1. Firstly I took a piece of craft card and used Gesso all over
the front. Once dry I then inked part with Tim Holts Shabby 
Shutters before running through the embossing folder. 
To be honest I did use the stamps but because the card was
to large I had to cut it down and Yes daft me cut the
stamping off.

2. Onto an 8 x8  card I mounted Jade coloured  satin card
then onto that added my embossed card.

3. Using two of the large Tonic dies I cut the flourishes
and placed them down the side of the card,added
purple flowers from my stash.

4. Using the Tattered Lace sentiment  die ( I love this)
the sentiment was cut  out of white card and then
inked using the same colour as on the card.

In case you cannot read the sentiment it reads
(There is nothing special about this card
except the person holding it)

 Oh it that not the sweetest sentiment , makes you feel
all warm inside.

Well there you have it, hope you enjoyed your visit
and will return again very soon.
Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting.
