I hope everyone had a 'Happy Halloween' yesterday. Weather was absolutely terrible here for the trick or treaters - rain, rain, windy, cold - I'm so glad my kids are grown up and I was able to stay inside where it was warm and hand out treats. In past years we have seen 40 - 50 kids, last night we only had 15, so needless to say lots of goodies left, not so good for the WW diet - so I will be taking the rest to work on Monday, I don't need that temptation at home. I'm 9lbs from my goal weight to become a life time member, but I must say these last 10 lbs or so have been the hardest. I have such a sweet tooth, and with Christmas coming - OMG I need to stay focused to reach my goal by then if I can. Okay enough about that, lets get on with my card.
I know I said I was going to post another Power Poppy card, but I haven't taken the picture yet, but I have this one to share instead. I don't think you will be disappointed.
This image is from Northwoods Rubber stamps Inc, I came across is in my Christmas stamp collection- I think I bought this over 3 years ago at a rubber stamp convention. I haven't been to one for 3 years so I know it's older than that. See that's what happens when you have too much, you forget what you have!
I stamped the image using black memento onto some cougar 110lb white c/s. I coloured the image using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol, then sponged around the image using SU soft sky, once I cut out the image leaving the die in place. I then layered this onto a piece of gold mirri paper, then onto some bazzill seafoam c/s. My background paper is from Memory Box - not sure what collection this is from.
I finished off with a couple of strips of gold peel offs along the bottom, glitter, a piece of gold metallic ribbon just tied in a single knot and held in place with a red glittered enamel dot. I don't know how well you can see, but the pine cones have some texture added to them. It's called Barbara Trombley's Elements - Nut brown - it looks like finely chopped cork with an added smell of nutmeg - oh it smells so nice!
I will get my powerpoppy card photgraphed for my next post.... until then... enjoy your day, whatever you are up to,
