Story Time


 Challenge No 6 over at Make my Monday continues the Vintage theme, but with the addition this week of some Embossing.
I used a script embossing folder for  two of  the background layers, swipped the  raised sufaces with an embossing pad, then dusted it all  mica powder.  At one time there was more on me than on the card, these powders seem to  have a will of their own.  The image is a Joanna Sheene stamp that I haven't used for ages,  coloured with Tea Dye distress ink round the edges and cosmic shimmer watercolour paint. I finished it off with a few pretty flowers.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
