Present time

This card was a bit of an experiment in creating a shape using a left over piece of paper from cutting a frame using a die. It wasn't 100% successful but it worked ok. I think my blending needs to improve but the concept worked!

I used some calypso coral ink and blended it through the die cut shape and then stamped the image of the presents. The sentiment I also stamped although now I look at it they look a little wonky! Then I brushed the flowers with the ink to tie them in and then glued them in place using the pin flair glue gel.

Finally I finished by edging the card with the same colour ink.

I am entering this in the challenge at the stamping boutique

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad which means I probably haven't proof read the above and there is likely to be rubbish included that I probably should have thought about more! So please accept this post as it is and sorry that I didn't take more care!
