International Card Making Day...

...is today. Over on the Paperartsy blog Leandra has a competition to celebrate. I don't really do cards, but I thought I would have a go, especially with the chance to win Paperartsy stamps up for grabs!

I painted the front of a card blank with my favourite combo (claret fresco finish, crackle medium then nougat fresco finish) then embossed a music script stamp with gold. I went round the edge with my new love, frantage aged teal embossing powder. The Paperartsy bauble and word were stamped onto grunge paper that had been painted with pea coat and Hyde park fresco finish mixed to match the teal in the frantage. I embossed those with white detail powder, cut them out and edged them all with a gold paint dabber. A bit of gold ribbon tied around the top of the baubles and I was done.

Thanks for looking.
