Oh baby it's cold outside
I don't know about where you are but it has been freezing down this neck of the woods in the mornings. I really haven't felt like getting out of my duvet at all (not that I do any morning mind) brrrrr. Anyhoo lots to say and tips to tell on this card. Firstly the fresh cuts stamps, as it is a largish stamp, to make it fit on a smaller bit of card stock I placed four post-it-notes around the edges, just in a little, so when I stamped the image it left a nice little border around the edge of the image. Secondly the image itself which I stamped in basic grey ink but then went over with my blender pens dipped into the basic grey ink to create shadows on the solid image parts of the stamps. I think you should be able to see it on the pic.
I hope you like, especially the yummy new nouveau chic papers too (super lush). Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx
