I found a beautiful fine lace stamp in a set from Kaisercraft that suited the look I was after. I used Versmark and white embossing powder. It took me a white to decide on what to have on my focal image. I knew I wanted to use the Floral Spellbinder die so tried a number of stamps. Finally decided on the butterfly from Stampendous. I only wish now that I had used Archival ink to stamp the butterfly as it would have been darker. I distressed around the edge of the die with some black ink. Again, not overly happy with the result. But all in all, the card does have a touch of elegance.
The weekend just seem to fly by.... Stamping all day yesterday and then this afternoon, we went to visit some friends who spend a month travelling round Croatia and other parts of Europe. We wanted to get some ideas and their thoughts on Croatia as we are thinking of travelling there next year...so have started the planning phase. Karen and Gary and their daughters visited relations in Croatia as well as Switzerland. They also visited Italy and France so it was great sharing experiences. A nice way to spend a dismal Sunday afternoon.
Wishing you all well for another week.... A short working one for me as it's Queens Birthday Weekend here in NZ and I'm taking Friday off making a 4 day weekend. We are heading up to the beach, so a relaxing quiet weekend in store.
