the poetry of the earth.xx

good morning all, thought i would share another of my just playing cards again.lol.i have made 2 others too but again have managed to delete them but you can see them in my docrafts gallery once the new site is up and running.i have been asked if i use a brayer to do the backgrounds, in a word no i don`t.i do own a brayer but to be honest i just can`t get the hang of it so instead i use post it notes,torn to create the edge i want and distress inks and sponges.this one is going as a sample again to my local craft shop.

products used are distress inks,bundled sage,crushed olive,peeled paint and black soot.versafine black onyx ink to stamp the images and sentiment.white and olive card.i used a stamp set by creative expressions called british wild flowers and it has some beautiful sentiments and flowers and little background stamps which is how i did the backing behind the topper.

close up of the topper, i love the sentiment.



and a sideways view.
thanks so much for popping by and for any comments you would like to leave and oh my word i have only gone and come in the top 3 on the whiff of joy challenge blog, cor i ain`t half shocked.i absolutely love whiff of joy stamps and there dt creations are amazing.i feel very honoured to have been chosen.well thats my good news for today.off to get dressed now cos i`m still in my pj`s again.luv coops.xx
