Crafty Individuals......


Morning peeps I thought I'd share with you a card that I made for my hubbys birthday, it was also an excuse to use one of the new stamps from Crafy Indiviuals CI 344.
I have also used a travel ticket from the stamp set CI 239 and a postcard stamp CI 302.The compass I painted with Weathered Wood crackle paint, then I embossed part of it with Verdigris embossing powder and then I rubbed a bronze metallic cream into the edges for a more aged effect.I coloured the images with Promarkers and Prismas.The little shells are from my holls last year at Lake Garda.
