Taking it one step further.....

Evening all, hope you've had a good day, and managed to get a little crafting done. I've had a very productive 2 days, and made 11 cards......however NONE of them were the orders I need done, or the wedding stationery, (which is need for 2 weeks time) so I'm still procrastinating....BUT, when you have ideas in your head, you must get them down on paper...... that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!
Tonight's card is a very easy mat & layered effort......because the twinchie was already made, it only took 5 minutes to finish it. I first showed this little piece earlier in the month, (see 3rd July, the colour looks a bit more vibrant)

The little guitar started off silver, so I 'versamarked' it and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The orange matted pieces were coloured with Pan Pastels, as was the twinchie.

I just want to remind you of the THREE challenges that I'm involved in at the moment, and there's still time to get your entries in......
( Theme is SUMMER )
( Theme is WHITE ON WHITE )
( Theme is COLOUR )
Hope to see you there!!
