Spring Awakening

Hello! While I was blog hopping around I came across a tag challenge that I fancied having a go at.

 The theme of the challenge over at Just Tag It is 'Przebudzenie wiosny' which means Spring awakening. I created some pieces of card spattered with water and various Distress Inks. The background was also stamped using SU's Timeless Textures and embossed with a very pretty pale pink embossing powder - Donna Salzar's Mix'd Media Inx embossing powder in Chiffon. There was also a lot of liberal spraying of Hero Arts Metallic Shimmer in Gold. Details were added in copper ink with my fountain pen. I have a super cute mint green Kaweco Sport fountain pen and I got some copper ink as a way of encouraging myself to write my Christmas cards last year!
I'm also going to send my tag to Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground because I think this might actually be my first 'distressed' style creation after the trauma of the gold embossing paste on the carpet slipper debacle...
Happy crafting! April x

CCT Stash Challenge

Hello! We have a challenge to use up your stash at Christmas Card Throwdown this week!

You don't need to use all three! I have gone for sequins and gems combined with a Memory Box die and a colour scheme of Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky.
We look forward to seeing your blingy Christmas cards! April x
