Soooo busy lately!

Well I finally found time to blog, its been totally manic in Casa Maria-or not as the case may be, I have not even been in the house for more than a 24 hour pit stop for the last 3 weeks!

I thought I would show you a couple of cards from my workshops, todays card is using Sam Poole's Nautical stamps, there are 2 sets and they mingle together very nicely.

Sorry about the dodgy pic, I was rushing!
The background is achieved using 2 of Ali Reeve's masks placed at opposite corners and sprayed with one of the new Vintage misters from Creative Expressions.
The torn light blue card has been stamped randomly with the large Atlas stamp inVersamark then edged in Denim Adirondack,can you see how soft the colour graduation is from the edges? thats my Splodge Away blending mat at work!

The little ships wheel is embossed onto Acetate and attached to a disc of blue card with a Screw Top brad, so the whel will spin (im easily amused).

Thats it for today, thanks for stopping by.
