The card I'm sharing with you today is a birthday card I've made for my best friend whose birthday is today ! Unfortunately, we don't live close enough to see each other very often and hence the card has to go in the post so I have to keep it relatively flat !
I've been having lots of fun with my new Gelli Arts plate and that is what I've used to create the background for this card. I've then stamped on top using the Tim Holtz Mixed Media stamps using black Archival ink and white acrylic paint. The text is from the Tim Holtz Papillon set and I've blended DI around the edge. The main image is a PaperArtsy stamp and I've masked her off and then stamped the script from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set over the top. I've then blended DI around the edge. The little tag is hand cut and the text is from a Darkroom door stamp set.
The letter 'K' has been cut from mount board using the Tim Holtz WordPlay die, then I covered it with Ferro texture paste, painted it with acrylic paint and when it was dry rubbed Treasure Gold over it. The ribbon is seam binding which I've dyed using DI that I've spritzed with water.
We've had another load of snow overnight and all through today so we're not managing to go very far. I'm just hoping the Tesco delivery van gets through otherwise it will be bread and jam for tea !
