especially for you

Yesterday I was watching a video on how to use masking liquid, then I saw a beautiful card on Facebook made in the same way, so then I was inspired to have a go, I stamped this image from a set of Penny Black stamps called efflorescence twice,  then painted it with masking liquid I waited for it to dry before I coloured it all over using memento ink pads, New Sprout n Pear Tart, then I removed the masking liquid just by rubbing over the stamped image with my finger , the sentiment is from Woodware. i was really pleased with the end result.. you can colour the image or just leave it like I have..

Girls just..

Hello my blogging friends, I would just like to say I am sorry for not visiting all your blogs and leaving comments but a few weeks ago I had a fall and hurt my wrist, so due to that I have not been able to do any crafting or comment on all your beautiful creations, I am right handed and thats the hand I fell on, I am useless with my left hand, but hopefully now my wrist is on the mend I am able to do a bit of crafting and visit your blogs and leave comments again, it's still a bit sore so I am still a bit slow but managing to do a bit.  So today we have a new challenge for you at Cardz4Galz this time the challenge is Handbags and Glad Rags picked by Julie,  please do join in with the fun we would love to see your creations and I am sure you will get plenty of inspiration from the design team  also. for my DT card I have gone with a image called Shopping Kate, I coloured her with my new Graph'it twin tip alcohol based marker pens that I bought here in Portugal and they come in loads of different colours and are lovely to use. I am sorry but I am not sure the make of the sentiment as I have lost the packet it came in, they are a  few more stamps that came with this one.
