A card for me...

Hi, it seems like ages since I had time to play and create a card just for fun...what with DT stuff, holidays and granddaughters, time just flies past! Yesterday I had some time to play with my lovely Lavinia stamps and gelli plate...if you saw my green stained fingers you'd know exactly what I'd been up to! I made two fairly similar (well, very similar!) cards...this one I brayered DI inks directly onto the paper (no gelli plate here!) then stamped my images using various colours of Versafine Clair inks, added some touches of white gel pen ink and added a bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella (sorry it doesn't show up in the poho). I kept the design totally CAS - find it difficult and unnecessary to do anything else with these stamps! I haven't added a sentiment because I use these cards for all for sorts of occasions..
Not a very good photo, the card is white ...usually we have better daylight for taking photos in June!!!
Thanks for visiting, hope you've had a good weekend so far, enjoy the rest of it!

Wow! How completely beautiful, Chris! I love what you have done with the pink and teal theme, and that spiraling sentiment! What's a day without inky fingers, anyway? The depth you created in the front of the garden is amazing, with the dark shadow images and then the bright lavender thistle! Gorgeous card! Such a pleasure to see your pretty card at Lavinia World Challenges. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.

Stunning creation Chris, just love everything about it, I would not know where to start, you are so talented.
Wink of Stella never shows up on photo's and it really annoys me because if you use it on an evening when you have the light on it looks really super but then you look at it in the day time and you can hardly see it.

Have a great week.
