Papermill Special Offer No.3.......

Morning everyone and welcome to my new friends and followers....(as well as the old crowd, of course, LOL)
Just wanted to tell you about this weeks 'SPECIAL OFFER' from
Gorgeous charcoal coloured card
Over 70 sheets for just £4...... check it out HERE

Ok, I won't rabbit on today as Alan's parents are coming to see our gorgeous little Eva, and I have loads to do, so here goes.....

 CARD No.1

All cardstock from Papermill
Background on this card coloured with Pan Pastels.
Stamps from LAVINIA and Stamp-It (Australia)

I really like this charcoal's coloured right through (no white core).

 CARD No. 2

 The background on this card haas been made with Spray Inks from

 It was very tricky ( read that as 'losing my rag' with it!) getting all the words lined up UNDER the was almost launched out of the window a few times, I can tell you....LOL

 CARD No 3

The background on this last card was made by brayering gold acrylic paint over white linen card. I wanted the texture of the card to show through.

I think this is a very simple, but effective the two colours together.
I heat embossed the Sheena Douglas sentiment with 
fine detail embossing around, in my opinion.

Well, that's it for today, hope you like them all. Have a fabulous weekend......I'll catch you again in a couple of days.

Please leave a comment if you've enjoyed looking,
