Back to Black....& white!
I hope you are all well, or feeling better1
Todays card, was created from my box of bits and pieces, experiments and just general odd and ends.
I stamped the Justrite 'ironworks' stamp, as soon as I bought it when it was on special offer on Sue's stand at Ally Pally, I stamped the block up with Perfect Medium, I used the method that Sue does where you ink the stamp on the table and put the card over the stamp and rub gently, I then added Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing Powder and heated. I trimmed the black card to a few millimetres and added a white matt. I had an off cut of white card that I had embossed with Creative Expressions Rows of Bows Embossing Folder, stuck it to the stamped image and trimmed to fit, I then mounted the whole thing onto a black card base. I used the Italian Border cut in black card to cover the join in the card and added a pearl string across the top of the border. I tied a ribbon with black silky crush ribbon and topped with two die cut leaves and a Creative Expression Ribbon Rose in black in the centre. I made a stick pin with black and white beads and added two ready made ones to finish off.
I hope you like the card, please leave me a comment, as you know I look forward to reading them everyday.
We had an appointment at the Vets last night for Bella to have her stitches removed, only she slept in our room last night and I heard her nibbling and gnawing and guess what.... the little minx had removed her own stitches! luckily she waited until the day before the day they were supposed to be removed, or we might have had some problems. As it is the Vet said she had done a very neat job, thankfully! if its not kids its the pets!
Love and Warm Hugs to all of you,
