I am trying to get some cards made for my box and thought I would challenge myself to find a set of stamps that hadn't been used. I have a small tub of stampin' up stamps that never see the light of day and I chose the Nature walk set - now I think I may have used one or two of these many moons ago but I used a fair few of them to create a card that will be perfect for a man. (Hmmm I may know someone with a birthday in July who would like this).
I stamped the images on card that had been dipped in distress inks and found a piece of notebook style paper in my collage box and cut the celebrate from Tim's thinlits dies.
I used Bisters in Tim's flourish embossing folder to create the background - you can just see some of the flourish pattern showing.
I didn't want to add embellishments because of posting but I am pleased with the collage feel it has to it.
Whilst I had the bisters out I played with a couple of more backgrounds and you will see those cards another day.
Thanks for stopping by today.
