I made this card for a friend and I am hoping that it is now safe to show it !

I love the blue and brown colour combo at the moment. It is one of my favourites alongside pink and brown.

I used some cream card from The Papermillshop and some brown Bazzill card.

The patterned paper is Paper Salon, enamored : heart filagree which I bought from Craft Central. This is such gorgeous paper and double sided too and I really had to talk to myself hard in order to cut it !! I am sure you have been there ?!

The image is of course Leanne Ellis from Funky Kits which I painted with distress inks and I put some crackle glaze on the letters. I really must learn to let the distress inks dry over night or speed them up a bit because as you can see, the glazes make the ink run and I am assuming it is because the ink isn't fully dry. I suppose it adds to the aged look ?

The flowers are a mixture of Hero Arts and ones from my stash and I have added BasicGrey brads and spacers from my stash.

The blue and brown ribbons are from my stash.

The florishes are the Studio G ones. Both the image and florishes were stamped using Brilliance Coffee Bean ink.

The dew drops are from Lakeland (well, when they used to sell craft items).

I had to laugh this morning. I popped into town and everywhere I went, people were moaning about how wet and windy it was and how hot it was in all the shops ! Us Brits are never happy are we ? Bring back the frosts is what I say, it was so bright and beautiful. This morning is so dark, dismal and wet and definately not a good day to take photos of cards !

Take care and keep dry !!! hehehehe
