Some different things...

...for different challenges. The current Created by Hand challenge is "for the beauty of the earth;" my card also fits the current "pick three" challenge, the Frosted Design challenge (trees) and the Paper Sundae challenge (no people) . I used a Cornish Heritage Farms background stamp, misted with two colours of Ecoline Watercolour Ink and stamped on watercolour paper. I stamped and thermal embossed the Quietfire Design crow, then paste embossed the crows on a wire at the top with a Dreamweaver stencil and Dreamweaver black matte embossing paste.




On another note entirely, if you like all things vintage and Victoriana, here's something you might be interested in. Everybody loves giveaways, and in another few days, there'll be lovely challenges and contests there. Have a browse through the shop too, there are some GORGEOUS paper crafting goodies there for your own heartfelt creations.



Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your week!
