Just a quickie

Hi peeps
Just thought I would share this make with you. Its not very exciting ha ha

Been a bit off :( but back on track......... thank god for medication lol

Ive been playing with embossing powders ...mainly mixing them up and seeing what happens ha ha

A few mishaps and a nosey kitten later and Ta Da

Watcha Doin !

The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque - Butterfly Poppies set - I just used the large background, the flowers and the script moth. The text is from the Loving Sentiments set.

Ranger Ancient Tarnished Gold
Vintage Photo Distress powder
Walnut Stain DI
Nesties Frame and velum and Bronze Centura Pearl card stock.

The flower and moth have just a bit of tarnished gold to give the pitted effect.
I stamped the background and frame and lightly sprinkled each powder on, in patches it gives it a nice shabby, antique appearance............. need to try the patina affect that's doing the rounds too :) looks nice and mucky ha ha

Be good

  1. Looks like that nose could get embossing powder stuck to it - hope this little one didn't get too nosey. Hope you're feeling a bit better - frustrating isn't it? I agree about medication! Love the colours & the deep creaminess - I keep seeing that patina look achieved using alcohol inks........ hmmmmm.
