At last


I am so behind with my blog, I have been making quick cards for the school fair to raise money but got fed up with them so had a little play.
I saw a demo at a craft show using stamp and bond and metalic flakes, I loved it so much I had to part with my money! These are my first attempts, the images are stamped with versamark pads, then I added the heat and bond powder and heated it like embossing powder, this leaves an image that is sticky then you sprinkle the flakes on and brush off the excess.
The flower stamp is by Lavinia and the cross is a papermania one, I stamped the background with my florish set from basic grey, also used my new nestabilities
