Holiday Card Workshop - Day 8

Hello Friends,

I got busy yesterday and had far too much to do to be able to craft :( !  I did though try a few things earlier today but I'm afraid, I didn't come up with anything good enough!  Sometimes that happens (to the best of us - ha ha ha!!).

Well I've had a nap, I napped all the way through the crafting programme with Stephanie Weightman on QVC - whoops!  I decided to watch it whilst waiting for my class to come live and that was that.  All I can say is, that I must have needed the sleep.

There were some lovely cards and inspiration in the class today and I decided to go with a very simple card using 3 different coloured inks on glossy card stock.........

I had to photograph this card from above, otherwise the flash hit the glossy card stock and made for an even more awful photo than usual!

After applying the three different coloured inks, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant in a circular motion all over the glossy card stock I stamped the image from an old rubbadubbadoo image, one with a magnetic back, using Archival Black ink.  The magnetic back takes me back years and years!

I mounted the artwork onto a nice piece of matt silver card stock and then onto my Elegant Eggplant card base.  I embossed the greeting using silver embossing powder to finish the card.

Very simple, but I like it.

Hope you have some time to craft today.
