How Time Flies!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe how long it is since I last put an entry into my blog! I have been such a remiss blogger and will have to try hard to remedy this flaw! lol! Even this entry is tardy in it's apperance as you can see it is the Fathers Day card I made for my husband this year, which we all know was last month. You'll be happy to hear though, that he did actually get it on Fathers Day I'm just slow at getting on here! lol!

I really enjoyed making this card as it is really just a collection of my playing and experimenting. I used my favourite background technique of alcohol inks in shades of brown and then used black embossing paste through a Crafters Workshop mask. Once it was dry I spritzed it with Prefect Pearls sprays and matted and layered it onto black gloss card and brown glitter card and a copper base card. I then embellished it with Ideology metal work, film strip, tickets and a stamped banner that was cut using a Tim Holtz die.

I am also submitting this entry in the weekly Simple Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge , which is embossing this week. Now I know my card doesn't include the expected forms of dry or heat embossing but it is made up of embossing paste through a stencil, so just a twist on the theme. Hope everyone likes it. Wish me luck!

I'm quite happy with how it turned out and I hope my husband liked it too and had a nice fathers day even though I was off walking the Cancer Research Race for Life!

I have enjoyed composing this post and will now endeavor to keep my blog up to date. Thanks to you all who have persisted with me even though I have been so slack of late!


  1. Your card's wonderful! I've not used embossing paste - love how it looks!
