Be Yourself!

Good Afternoon Crafty Friend, Followers and Visitors

Both my parents are keeping well and I had a lovely visit with them.

I have also been to see my friend Jennifer too, she is well also.

My card today is made using stamps and stencil that my lovely friend Kath aka Mucky Paws has

Step by Step

1. A6 scalloped white card.
2. First layer has been created using the Wavy Stencil and distress ink Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac I then cut out with SB Labels 29 die.
3. I then cut out a smaller white piece of card using the above die and stamped the sentiment from the Just Saying Stamp Set with  Imperial Purple Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. I also used the flourish from the Hessian Collage stamp set again stamped with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then distressed with Shaded Lilac and matted and layered with foam pads for dimension.
4. To finish off I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Mini stamp set with Imperial Purple Versafine onto vellum and embossed with clear embossing powder then cut out and adhered to the card.

Many thanks for visiting Today
