Been playing…

The scanner doesn’t show this clearly because I used interference ink and pearl embossing powders, so here’s a photo to try to show a bit of the effect.

ENCORE UN OOOH LA LA

Love this stamp so much it may yet go on sale again…. 

the background is alcohol inks.

BOYZ

This one’s alcohol inks on acetate (a la Nancy Curry) and is one of

my all time favourite stamps – it’s DL size and I had to trim the image because it’s big!

This was a Birthday card for a friend.

I have more to post but they’ll wait until another day.  

I didn’t realise that ‘Anything French’ is the theme over at the Craft Room Challenge, but it is!

See you soon.
