On Sunday, a friend and I trotted off to the ArtStamps Show at Newbury. I'd already been told it was a bit disappointing but we went anyway - and were both so glad we did! Yes, there were fewer stands but those that were there offered much of what we were looking for looking for - and of course more stuff I really had no idea I even needed in the first place :)
Amongst the haul were a couple of sheets of ready die cut decoupage that caught my eye, so yesterday I had a little play and made this card:
- 7" x 5" white card blank
- white card stock embossed using the Couture Creations 'Bon Jour' embossing folder - love how you can use this folder in portrait or landscape to have the plain panel up/down or across the centre
- a grey and silver single rose from one of those decoupage sheets, layered using thin sticky pads
- aubergine ribbon bow
- sentiment is LOTV from their 'Small General Greetings' set, stamped using Adirondack 'Purple Twilight'
- purple Josy Rose nail heads, one heart and two dots
That was just a quick play yesterday then I had to go running round doing various errands, today looks like being the same as well. I'll be playing catch up with the Playground ASAP (and of course a couple more prizes for the toy box happened to fall into my shopping haul on Sunday).
