Don't look too close at this card because I think the glue's still a bit wet. I wanted to post this card that I made this morning because it seems like ages since I've made any cards. So, time to stop looking through my new crafty stash and start getting down to some serious card making again!
This one is made with my new Lili of the Valley stamps that I bought last week at the NEC show. I love their new circular sentiment stamps too! The image has been coloured with pro markers and the papers are some of my neglected Kay & Co papers. The ribbon slider was from Crafty Emma's Store and the peach flowers are Prisma. The other bits are from my stash.
TOP TIP: One thing that I forgot to buy at the NEC was blending sponges because I love the soft inked effect around edges of images. So I thought I'd try make up sponges to see if they were any good - and they worked brilliantly. At £1.60 these Boots ones were much cheaper than the craft ones. I think I could probably get them even cheaper next time if I shop around (will try Poundland or somewhere similar). So, I had a try inking around the edges of this circle. Its quite subtle and you can only just make it out on this picture.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
