Lovely As A Tree

G’day Everyone

I have been preparing for a Shaving Cream Class coming up in the next couple of weeks for a group of ladies who have booked their own classes. We spent a great night last week completing a Shaving Cream Class of course over lots of laughs so next is Polished Stone.

Anyways after I had completed one of the cards for the class, I decided to try something which of course didn’t turn out quite like I planned. But hey don’t tell anyone as in the end the card looks great. Mmmm sometimes the mistakes turn out the best LOL !!!!

Funny as Rhonda from the Elite Stampers group has also arranged for Polished Stone to also be the technique of the month, so I thought I would play along as I haven’t done so before.

I swiped the ink pads over glossy card, stamped the trees & restamped without reinking, added the Gold ink & dried with a heat gun. I don’t think the glossy card like the heat as it starts to remove the colour slightly which looks great. A few brads, layering, distressing & sponging & there you go all done!
