Colorbox Brocade!!!

For my card today I have used the gorgeous Colorbox Brocade metallic pigment inkpad and Smooch Spritz in Pearl.
For the background I have stamped a swirl image by Inkadinkado using the blue ink and then spritzed it with the Smooch. The main panel is another swirl from the same set stamped and embossed using Versamark and clear EP. The ink has then been applied using cotton wool then I spritzed that too.
The panel is layered onto silver card.
This picture doesn't do either the ink or the spritz justice. They are both gorgeous in real life.

I almost daren't say for fear of jinxing the flippin' thing but the cardigan for Ruby is going well. The back and one of the fronts is done so just one more front and the sleeves to go. I'm hoping to get it finished over the weekend.
The tea cosy is standing up very well to being used and is a vast improvement on the manky old thing we had before. So all in all I'm a happy old knit at the moment.

Tomorrow I am planning on a morning cooking and maybe some baking and an afternoon of crafting so we'll see how that goes. Anything can happen at Manic!!!

Thanks for dropping by.
