Well I think I am getting the hang of this blog thing so here goes another 8x8 card.
Briefly this card was created by Useing a Splodge Away mask of dots distressing the edges( useing my fabulous Splodge away mat) with Tim Holtz distress Inks. I have then embossed a Splodge away mask on brown card useing my Grand Calibur. I have then carefully cut it out and mounted it onto the dotty card. To the bottom right i have added three cogs again embossed with splodge Away masks. To complete the card I have stamped a greeting and pocket watch. These are joined by a chain crocheted out of bakers twine.
You may be thinking Splodge Away well yes I am a self confessed Spodge Aholic. The mat is just amazing for useing all your inks to blend and distress and you use every last drop of ink.
I am going to finish off today by adding some other cards and a little piece of artwork that I am particularly proud of. this was made at an Annette Leigh workshop and I had never done anything like this before.
