Tomorrow, tomorrow!!! :-)

It is a glorious morning here and I am worn out just watching the London Marathon!

So finally we are here and tomorrow is lift off - Yay!!! 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. tomorrow on Create and Craft - definitely one to watch :-)

Here are today's offerings with a focus on the amazing folders - they are perfect in their own right but also compliment the stamps beautifully:



This is one of the 5 x 7 folders - Indian Bouquet- I inked the folder with versamark and then embossed it in black. The distress inks used were, Picked raspberry, Mowed Grass and Salty Ocean - so quick and simple!


The second card  followed the same process of inking the folder with versamark but this time on the de-bossing side. The Mandalla folder is an A4 so, to make it easy on myself I used a brayer to apply the versamark ( Less chance of it squishing into places you don't want it to be!) I then embossed a sheet of heat resistant acetate and used a black embossing powder. The vibrant colours are Luminarte Silks painted on the reverse.

Have a fabulous Sunday - and enjoy the shows tomorrow
