Was A Challenge!!



I made this card last night for last weeks Ismaki challenge but it ended today so am posting anyway. I have used papers from 3 bugs in a rug and distressed with gold & green pigment inks. I stamped my image from Alota Rubber onto the die I cut with my MM SLice. I just love this machine as there is no set up or feeding, still using the repostionable spray and its cut within seconds. Coloured with Promarkers and added peewee glitter to the antenna's and misted the background with Glimmer Mist Spray. Used my cuttlebug folder and again ditressed wih a gold ink pad. Edges papers with Black Galaxy Marker. Flowers from stash and again distressed. Yes, we have had snow, a good coverage and flurrys on and off, just waiting for tomorrow as we are expecting quite alot by the sounds of it. Cant wait!! Hope your keeping warm, I think it will be late night tonight, watching and waiting as I love the stuff!
Who says I'm a big kid LOL...

What a super card, I love the image colours are fab and the distressed look is super.
As for snow I can't stand the stuff, had to drag the girls in from a snowball fight at 8 30, Aimee has a stinking cold too so wouldnt be suprised if she is off school tomorrow
