Sketch and Stash and finishing this card before I played with my new goodies!!
I got lots of lovely new goodies to play with today, including some of the new Aquamarkers, which are the most fabbie colours, some Distress reinkers too, and some Sugar Nellie stamps!! Woohoo! However, I have been very disciplined and finished this card for an Uncle next week.
I followed the sketch over on Sketch and Stash which seemed perfect for what I had in mind - I just shifted the image down so that the dragon was still visible. The papers, of course, are from Once Upon a Time (DCWV) and I used a larger card blank because I didn't want to lose the dragon behind my main image. I've had this paper ages, so my new stash is not that but the Tim Holtz embossing folder for the brick wall that you can just about see! Other tools include the Iron Railing punch from Martha Stewart and the rings are some bits that I kept because you never know!! I hope the recipient will be amused by the sentiment - I think I might put something like "You Certainly Don't Look It!" inside just to be sure!
The image is from The Age of Chivalry set by Elusive Images which I stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then masked the image and overstamped the cracked background (from Crafty Individuals) with Tea Dye DI.
At least now I can play with my new goodies tomorrow night! Oh and I've just found out that I won Dena's fab Candy- can life get any better!!! (On holiday from work for two weeks next week - yes it can!!)
