I recently won some candy from a fellow blogger and part of the candy was some gorgeous double-sided paper. I couldn't wait to have a play with it as it was such good quality - sorry I don't know the make. I also won a challenge last week and won the choice of some images so have used one on this card of a gorgeous Charlston gil from Di's Digital Downloads. I have coloured the image with Promarkers. The papers I have well and truly hacked with Tim Holtz's distressing tool, used cut-and-dry foam with Tim Holtz's Brushed Corduroy and Rusty Hinge ink pads to ink well into the edges of the paper to give good definition. Some off-cut strips I also distressed to layer over the image. The card is then finished off with a Personal Impressions stamped sentiment, gorgeous square brads, three flowers and a sparkly brad.
I can't tell you how many days it has taken to make this card as you'd never believe me. All I can say is that a dodgy tooth and infection can certainly do nasty things to a body. My visit to the dentist yesterday was horrendous but I have been temporarily "fixed" until my next appointment on 13/1/11. I've still got my antibiotics to finish and learn not to bite on my front tooth until it's all finished in six weeks' time.
