Good Luck




This very windy Sunday I am relaxing after doing the usual household chores and I made this card.  I started with a 4.5 x 4.5 inch white card blank.

I then stamped the bird (pinkpaisley) in Memento tuxedo black ink on a plain white card plate and coloured with alcohol ink pens.  This was matted on black card and the whole plate heat embossed with Versamark ink and detail clear embossing powder to give a glossy finish.






I then adhered a piece of stripey self adhesive fabric strip as shown across the card and mounted the birdy plate over this on sticky dots.






The words were stamped on more white card in Memento ink and trimmed out.  This was mounted as shown on foam pads.




The pic above shows the clear glossy finish achieved with the embossing powder.  This fits the bill for this weeks Less Is More challenge blog for week 185 whose theme is 'Animal'.

Have a great Sunday everyone and thanks to all who take the time to comment and follow my blog ...... it is really appreciated !
