This is a card I've made for one of my niece's, I am reasonably confident that she won't look ...fingers crossed ! The main image is a Clarity stamp and I've used the masking technique so that the shoes look like a pair. I stamped them with black Archival ink then clear embossed them and then shaded them with my Sangria Aquamarker. I've used Labels 4 Nestabilities and I've rubbed a little Vintage Photo DI around the edge and used a ProMarker to ground them. The Suchard stamp is one of my new purchases and I absolutley love it, so you could be seeing alot of it ! Almost forgot to mention it's one of Tim Holtz's gorgeous stamps. I've distressed it and then used Vintage Photo and Tea Dye DI. The embossed panel is made using the Cuttlebug Victoria EF and I've rubbed Walnut Stain DI over it.

The paper is from my Basic Grey stash, I haven't used any of my BG papers in a while and flicking through them I think I need to change that ! The sentiment was stamped with black Stazon and then cut out with a Quickutz die and I've rubbed Vintage Photo DI around the edge. The buttons are from my stash.

I'm entering this card into the below challenges :

Well I hope you all stay warm and safe over the week end, having the seen the news tonight it looks like we're all in for a cold and snowy few days. Definitely going to make use of my hot water bottle !
