Long time no Blog – it’s good to be back and for life, hopefully, to settle down a little.  Couldn’t resist this one because this is one of my favourite Time to Stamp images, as are the background stamps (from the ATC plates).  Believe it or not, the card is BLACK, as is the Cuttlebugged layer... the background is made with Brilliance reinkers on glossy card.

Thank you VERY MUCH to Pen for the wonderful award she gave me in the last couple of days – I will do as I’m supposed to (tell you 10 things you don’t know about me and nominate ten other bloggers) as soon as I can.  Life has been rather hectic of late, so I have a lot to catch up on.   If you haven’t visited Pen’s blog, it’s well worth a look – it’s one of my favourites.

This one was just a play – great to be able to for a change!
I found a piece of Caught in Crystal acetate, so I used that, putting some Spanish text paper behind it and stamped up some glossy card for the background.  It IS straight but the scanner has obviously distorted the image because of the buttons and the layers – at least this one doesn’t blur all the 3D images - and it's rust, lol!  Maybe I need to calibrate the scanner???
