I'm still feeling all stuffy from this cold and although I really want to craft I am finding it difficult to concentrate. It was sunny for a few hours today so I did get out and do some tidying around the garden. The temperature remains unseasonably warm so must take the chance while we can. Then I decided to try and catch up on my Altered Playing Cards, since I am now three weeks behind!! So here's my week 8 offering. You can see Claudine's originals HERE
For my first card I coloured my background with distress inks. The heart is a sizzix die cut cut from red metal and black leather. Then I decided to use a valentine words embossing folder and highlight with Barn Door Distress ink.
For my second card I again used distress inks and then doodled a border
The same heart die, which I wrote love and added a little black heart as Claudine had done. Then I decided it needed something lower down so got out one of my cuttlebug measure by measure embossing folders. I embossed at an angle, realised I had de-bossed!!, then embossed again lower down. Then highlighted again with Bard Door DI. Quite like the effect. I am also going to join this card over at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 238 - Offset Embossing Folder
Thanks for your visit. Off to drink lemsip and get an early-ish night. Hugz
