Heavy Metal!

Hi everyone.

First of all a very warm welcome to my new followers, MaryH and Susan. I hope you enjoy your visits

Today's card is an experiment to see if I could print a digi stamp over a distressed background, and I was happy to find that it worked quite well. I cut an oblong from a spare piece of card and used it to mask a frame while I coloured the inner oblong with di's. The digi is one that I have had in my files for some time, and I can't recall where I got it from. I have trimmed the bottom with some musical tape and added a key for embellishment

Hi everyone
 Today's card features a background using distress inks and the lovely wildflower stamp  from Crafty Individuals. I layered onto a deeper teal card and finished off with a ribbon

I am sailing!

Hi everyone.
I have been doing a major 'sort out' of my crafty 'stuff'! 
What a job!!
I found some spare time this morning to make this simple card for the Unstampabelles challenge. The theme is Emboss, and for a male.
I diecut a piece of card from my scrap box, and layered it onto an embossed pale blue paper. The yacht is also diecut 3 times and adhered with mounting tape to raise it up
