One day to go


2 more samples for you from
The launch tomorrow on create and craft tv sky channel 674.. From Sheena Douglass ..

This  one of the new stamps, simply using chipped sapphire distress ink and some stickles.. 

I used an alcohol ink background.. 
I used tin foil stuck to card to use with the new embossing folder.. Again colouring it with spectrum pens and I used a little stazon over the raised bits 
The stamps and dies I used were from the perfect partners. 

Reet .. I'm off to look for a holiday.. I've just fed my pond fish guinea pig food, so I really do think it's time for  a holiday!! 
Didn't envisage spending 20 mins with a net fishing in the pond this morning that's for sure..
Thank you for your visit..
