Hi everyone, hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend, mine has been spent working, oh the joys of retail!!! After a busy weekend I am now home with my aching feet up, bliss.
I have managed to keep up to date with blogland through my iphone and it looks like many of you have enjoyed a crafty weekend, (jealousy has kicked in). I might get to potter a bit in my craftroom tonight but more likely I'll fall asleep infront of the TV lol.
Just thought I would post a quick card I made last week as I wanted to play with my new Marilyn Monroe stamp from Deep Red Stamps.
The background was simply 3 distress ink pads peacock,raspberry & lemonade directly dabbed randomly onto card and then sprayed with water so they merged together slightly.
The card was then cut up for the background and the remainder stamped 3 times with the Marilyn stamp, mat and layered onto black cardstock. The sentiment is from Indigoblu stamp set "Brideshead" then a few diamond gems to finish it off.
This is probably my last post before I jet off  for a bit of R&R in the South of France, can't wait. So I will see you all in a couple of weeks.
