My lovely blogland friends

Monday 25 August 2014


Good morning my lovelies, yippeeeee its a Bank Holiday here in the UK so I've got an extra day off work to play! This card was made using the beautiful Madeleine stencil from Clarity and a shaving foam background. I haven't used that technique for ages but saw Barbara Gray using it and was inspired to have a play, you can't beat a bit of messy fun lol

I embossed the stencil through my Grand Calibur and then set to colouring with my Graph'It markers before cutting her out.

The background is from a batch of shaving foam backgrounds I made a few weeks ago and done a wee bit more inking and then added a little bow and some paper flowers.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ArtbyMiran: anything goes
Clear it out: anything goes
Crafters Cafe: square cards
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes

thanks so much for popping by, hope to see you again soon
