Good to have you join me
Can you believe it
the first half of the year has
gone? Like a puff of smoke!
Just like that.......
Oh well, not to worry, we
have Hazel Harler here so
let's settle down and get
"Hi everybody, I have a card to share
with you today.
I started by stamping the Impression Obsession
image onto card with distress ink and then
I used a water brush to soften the inked lines.
On the stamp the ring has been cut off at the top
so I used a pen to make it into a whole ring.
The stamped image was matted onto black card.
For the background I stamped the Impression Obsession
stamp onto white card.
I used this stamp because I thought it
looked like waves.
The sand was then stamped over the swirly waves.
A close up of the finished background.
I decided to use this Kaisercraft paper on my card.
I distressed the edges and stitched round them.
I decided that I wanted more of the striped paper
showing so I trimmed the stamped background
and stamped a quote on it.
A close up of the quote.
To finish the card I wrapped some thread
round the bottom of the background,
added the metal charm and die cut seagulls."
Square card blank.

Kaisercraft Indigo Skies paper pad.
Archival ink - forget me not.
Distress ink - walnut stain and spiced marmalade.
White and black card.
Brown thread and charm.
Sewing machine - optional, can be stitched by hand.
Thank you Hazel - a great
card (especially for a man)
and I do like the seagull
sitting on the charm!
Don't you think that
putting the top back on the
life belt was a stroke of
brilliance? I do but would
not have thought of it myself!
Leave you with that......
