Free Your Imagination

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

Well I have got all the housework done and the house is back to normal.  All decorations are down and back up in the loft.  The washing done, ironing to do later, will get hubby to do that.  He is a happy bunny as he is able to get in his garden today as it is dry at the moment.  He is giving it a tidy up as lots of plants have died now and he loves his garden and it has been annoying him not able to get out.

Well me, as you all know I can be found in my crafty piece of heaven.  One happy bunny as I got a lot of crafting done for me yesterday,  I have a few DT cards to do today and then that is my January DT work all done. 

My card today is one of my favourtite stamp sets from Visible Image.  I hope you enjoy your visit today.

8 x 8 scalloped cream card which I have used the feathers to stamp the background using Big & Juicy ink pad in Foilage.
The first layer is brown Core'dinations card which I have distressed the edges with scissors
The second layer is mocha paper from my stash.
The topper is from Core'dinations Tim Holtz collection which I have embossed using 6 x 6 Regal Frame from Die'sire.  I have distressed the top layer back to highlight the embossed corners.
Using Perfect Medium I have embossed the birds and used WOW embossing powder called Bark regular.  The sentiment has been embossed using WOW Gold Sparkle regular.
At the base of the topper I have randomly stamped with Perfect Medium and sprinkled Fran-tage aged gold whilst this was still hot and bubbling I sprinkled some of the shabby white.
To finish off I have added pearl gems to the top corners of the swirls added a couple of feathers a double bow and a dazzler from Creative Expressions.

Thank you for visiting Today
