numbers and men !

Hi All ,
For this card i used the faux leather technique, covering a piece of shiny card with masking tape in little bits and then colouring it over with vintage photo.  All the stamps are from creative expressions travel set. I stamped up the Eiffal tower in chocolate archival ink. the background was distressed with spiced marmalade and vintage photo with other images being stamped up in spiced marmalade and vintage photo.A Tim Holtz tag " Wander 6839" was added to chocolate ribbon and the imagine metal work was coloured using Tim Holtz re-inkers. Hope you like the card i had fun making it. Now to see if i can link up .......!!!!!
bye for now xx

I can't resist sweet treats !!!

So for the Sunday challenge I got a tag and using a Molly Bloom cake stamp I embossed the image using perfect medium and clear embossing powder. I then coloured all the tag with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord, then shined the cakes up with tissue.  I stamped the Molly bloom banner up then coloured it in with Pro Markers and added some candy to the ends. For the tag i used a few layers of Ultra thick embossing powder and then stamped a few flowers into the ink while it was still hot and finished it off with a piece of ribbon.  "I CANT RESIST SWEET TREATS" was added and a few doodles.

A pretty simple tag but fun to do anyway just enough inking to keep the urges at bay!!!!

Take Care xx
