Stamps and Stencils

Morning and I have four DT posts today-this is the last one which is for the midway inspiration for the ATG challenge at Love to Craft .I stamped the Agapanthus Cluster from Stampendous in distress ink sprayed with water before stamping,the background card I made with a stencil BUT instead of inking through a brick stencil, I put distress ink on craft mat and sparayed with water then laid the stencil on this then patted down onto card so you get the negative part really then I stamped the sentiment from Visible Image onto an offcut,distress inked round all the edges and done.

Embossed Postcard

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Daisy Chain and I made a poscard which I also entered into a postcard swap on FB.I stamped and heat embossed the Indigo Blu image in black and the corner flourishes(think they are from Sheena Douglas) in white-mistake because when I covered the card with panpastel it coloured the white too-I then edged the card with a black soot Distress Ink pad.It has to be one layer to go throught the post as a postcard sooo-done!Just sharing a couple of quirky comments from Holly-Ann(grandaughter 8yrs)she wanted a birthday card for a friend and was torn between a small one and a large one -really love the larger one but best take the small as she lives in a bungalow-right!!!She got so excited having a balloon fight with her grandad she came out with ---oooh I could lick a pig???really lol.
