The word Mum is stamped and embossed as are the edges with pink baby powder embossing powder
I can't stop sniffing it! it smells so lovely!! :)

Welcome to fabulous Mini Vegas Norfolk

Casino Jack is the inspiration poster for this month's

Extra Criteria
 1pt = Grey base card stock
2 pts = playing card/s
3 pts = money notes

Here is my layout using the poster as inspiration.
I live in Great Yarmouth which I think is a gambler's paradise!  There are casinos, amusement arcades, horse racing, greyhound racing and many betting shops!!

 I used a dark grey cardstock as my base and gold embossed stamped coins around the edge.  I printed out some postcards showing all the lights.  There's a couple of playing cards tucked behind the main postcard too.  I tried to copy some notes but the software wouldn't allow it!! so I found an image on google and used that.

The Chinese acrobats are from a flyer advertising the circus.

Thanks for visiting

Archi-Scraps Challenge 8

I recently found a new Scrapbooking site
called Archi-Scraps.
Their current challenge is to use a photo of David Cerny's
as inspiration

If you go to Archi-Scraps there is a link to the video of this amazing piece of public art.

The added criteria is to use a headshot for your photo and bling!
This photo is of my youngest daughter and her best friend at their school prom.
I used various sprays and inks on the background of a ripped pizza box.

Here is a close up of some of the bling.
For the semi-heart I inked and then clear embossed, over this I brushed some perfect pearls powder and then reheated it- it gives a lovely shimmery effect.

Thanks for visiting
Have a good Sunday!

Craftmania February Challenge

Our local craft shop, Craftmania have made a kit up from which you need to make a card for their competition.
Its a lovely kit with loads of stuff - enough to make several cards.

I used one of the white Marianne Designs cutting dies for the flower and flourish.

The aperture was cut with a heart die (can't remember who makes it but its pale pink if that's any help!)

Thanks for visiting
