Crafty Cardmakers.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Great News!

I'm here to tell you that I shall be making cards for the 'Crafty Cardmakers and More' Challenge Blog.
I was so pleased that Lin asked me to join the group.
The Design Team are highly talented and just hope I can keep up with them.

The theme for this challenge is 'New' and it seemed a good idea to base it on something new, so here is my first card.

I used a new stamp too, so all very appropriate for this challenge.

And made a new Masterboard.
On the white paper I stamped with black and then embossed it with clear powder and on the black I stamped with white paint slightly watered down to give a softer finish.
Then used a Spellbinders die set to cut the shapes and mount them together.
The hand and the nibs are Tim Holtz dies and the stamp is Clarity.

I hope you will pop over to see what my team mates have been making and also to join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Happy crafty card making.
