Coming Back........Slowly!!!

Ooooooh looky............I made a card...........and it's stamped!!!
I must have hit a small pocket of mojo this morning. I was looking through a box of inked backgrounds and found this one which I think is a gorgeous mix of colours.
Unfortunately I can't remember which inks I used for it. It could be either Adirondack or Kaleidacolour. Whichever it was, it was applied to a piece of white gloss card.
I stamped the Creative Exressions image onto the card using StazOn Jet Black. I then made a mask from copier paper and laid that in place while I stamped the music background....again using StazOn.
For the next stage I painted bleach into the areas that I wanted to look white and left it to dry.
Using the mask again and having made a bleach pad, I inked up a musical note stamp and stamped the ghostly notes coming out of the saxaphone.
The greeting plaque is two oval Nestability shapes attached with brads and the greeting is a peeloff.
Ifeel so much better now I have done some!!!

I'll be back at work tomorrow and I am so nervous of going back. I have been at home for a month what with the Christmas holiday and then not being well.

Uh's hubby with the veg for tea so I had better go and get chopping.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. What a fantastic card I absolutely love it! A lot of work but well worth the effort. Good luck with going back to work tomorrow.
