Early Dawn

Good Evening, My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Well managed to get sorted yesterday after the plasterer had gone and
the new  ceiling looks good.  Now all that is left to do is to emulsion 
the ceilings and walls in three rooms, not looking forward to that.

Anyway today I am showing a card using the  stamp I bought on
                         Saturday at Leigh and I am very pleased with it as its the first
 time I have used inks for backgrounds.


1. Card size is 6 x 6  scalloped edge and I have matted
and layered a piece of black card to it.

2. Using distress inks I created the background and 
I used the Inkylicious stamp ( Old Beech Tree) in
the centre of the card.

3. In the same stamp pack there were the birds and
I have stamped one either side.

4. The sentiment Follow Your Dreams was also included
and I have used it in the top right hand corner.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog
and as always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
