WHOO! HOO!!


This is the first card I've managed to make in a fortnight - hence the reason for the title! It's for several challenges starting with Bah! Humbug! I had to miss last week's due to lack of time but I was deternined not to miss the current one too. The theme this time is embossing. I've used 3 different cuttlebug folders and the Merry Christmas is heat embossed. Quite a few other challenges inspired this one too. Daring Card Makers want 'Daimonds for April and I've created another shaped easel card for this - I won't be putting onto SNR and the Special 50/50 straight way this time though because I haven't got it quite right so I need to tweak it first. Allsorts say no dp and for this one I've made my own. I put some white pearlescent paper through my lovely new CB folder then used gold and two shades of red alcohol ink to colour it and really like the result. I printed the Holly Fairy image from Mo Manning onto the same white pearlescent paper and was delighted to find that my promarkers didn't bleed on this paper. The other challenges this is for are:
I've had a lovely time making this and I hope you enjoy seeing it, thank you for dropping by today.
