Having woken up absolutely shattered this morning I decided I wasn’t going any further from the bed then the kitchen today. Of course the basis of that idea was then to have a quiet day in bed… making just one list or two of things I really REALLY need to do over the next couple of weeks and maybe get the filing sorted ready to be actually filed!
Hmmmmm… wasn’t that all just a simple plan… NOT! There’s so much to be done I decided to work backwards in my diar from Boxing Day and shockingly, just about everyday is accountable for and that’s not even including all the school bits and pieces. What can I say… I’m doomed!
Anyways, before this pity party turns into a slumber party, which it already has as I fell asleep editing the photo (how sad is THAT and now it’s three days later… I tell you, I doomed!), here’s the third and last card of my Artistic Etchings series. This is my Bon Voyage or “Safe Travels” card. I must confess, I rather like this one. I think because it’s much more my old style as there is a LOT going on!
That glistening you can see on my oversized photo corners is black embossing. I’ve used the round stamp from the Artistic Etchings set to create the pattern over these corners to lift the Basic Black cardstock – black on black it is. Quite effective if I do say so myself, and yes, I do say so myself!:)
With the other stamps I’ve stamped those with Black StazOn then cut them out, with exception of the Amour. Amour has been stamped with Read Red then I’ve cleared embossed over it. And something that the camera isn’t really picking up is how I’ve scored approximately 6mm in all around the edge of the Very Vanilla Rectangle. I’m loving that scoring accent!
