Aprils fool...

Evening peeps, did any of you get caught out today...I did by a member of staff, it was also my assistants manager birthday today, and I made her work ......how bad am I !!!, I made this card for her, I had a play with my new Fresco paints from Paperarsty for the background ,I used the resist technique stamping the script stamp and then embossing with clear embossing powder, the script stamp is from Viva, I then applied the paint with a brush mixing the paint as I was painting, I added more script stamp with black and popped on a flower which was made by colouring with distress inks  and then embossed with aurora cosmic shimmer powder......nice and easy.


Challenges
Stampin B ......make your own background paper.

Just for fun.....anything goes (technique, painted with new paints)

Have a great weekend
hugs
