I also wanted to make a card to send off to Bramwell Crafts - after the workshop on Saturday Melanie gave us some baby images - paper - and embellishments and said make a card and email it to her.
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITH OUT EMAIL???
So I put this together - bit of a rush - but, as Grandad would say S**t or get off the pot.
Church office in the morning - I have promised http://www.wowthankyou.co.uk/ loads of things to list - hope the vicar does not want to use the computer - could be a tussle going on there.

This one is gold leaf work. Gold leaf is not 'real' gold, it is really, really fine coloured metal - way, way finer than tinfoil. You have to lay down a 'size' - which is a bit like glue - but you have to wait until it is just about dry and lay the leaf over it. I am hopeless - I always end up with big gaps and holes - and when I try to 'burnish' it loads flake off. The only reason I have a go once in a while is that someone gave me 6 packs of leaf when they closed up their shop.

You know I aid I was going to sell a bit on Ebay? I have sold a few spare craft bits and some of princelet's games (on commission or course!). Got enough to buy a few more Copic Sketch pens - that's what I call a good deal :-). I am hunting the house for bits to list - yipeeee more Copics

I wanted to do my way of using up stickers. All I had left was a Christmas sheet with an angel - so I cut off the snowflake and gave her a flower to hold - clever eh?

I drew out the number and cut them out of card - then tore the stamps in half - inked all the outer edges and laid them down with pva glue. You should have seen the state of me - ink everywhere.

It's a really pretty country side decoupage
I discovered last year that people seem to like the more message type text - rather than just 'happy birthday'.
OOOH I hope this is a good year on the stall

New card for you today. It is all about the inking technique the is on the card behind the bunny really. The card was already embossed with 'happy birthday' and I applied alcohol ink in stripes with a felt pad. The bunny is decoupage - and you can see all the other layers
