1 of a kind.xx

good evening all, thanks to everyone who has popped over to the crafty urchins blog, your support is really appreciated.enough waffle from me.i have made this card tonight with these new stamps i got today by inkadinkado called delicate branches.i`m sure i don`t need to tell you where i got them from.so all products used i got from here

so products used are black, white and scrap of purple card.white raffia and black button from stash.faux stitching.panel of white card distressed with distress inks in dried marigold, rusty hinge and dusty concorde.i then stamped my images on with archival ink in jet black and used glossy accents on the bird.i used a white gel pen to lift it a little.a torn piece of black and purple card and the raffia tied and the button added.hero arts sentiment to finish.i wanted it to look quite spooky.lol.

close up of the topper.



and a close up of the torn bit,hehe

and a sideways view.thanks so much for popping by,i hope you like this one.i still have purple hands and have got work in the morning.oops.
enjoy what is left of your evening.
ttfn
luv coops.xxx
