CBC Tanda stamps competition

Over on CBC Tanda stamps have kindly donated a lovely prize for a competition that's closing this evening: 'So to win this fabulous prize you need to get some sun and..... shake off the blues and make a spring/summer themed card.'

I made one earlier this evening and I had to wait for the matte accents to dry and then I found I couldn't get a photo because the flash was just making the accents look like streaky white patches. So in the end I've resorted to a scan, which doesn't show any of the detailed embossing or the matte accents.

The stamps I've used are ones I bought ages ago and have never used - they are by Elusive images.

Everything was stamped with Versafine Onyx black and embossed with fine detail clear. Colouring was done with Karismacolor and Sansodor:

HS:MS delicate

'To be very fine in texture, structure or workmanship. Find something delicate in your space today.'

John had a diabetic clinic appointment at Guy's this morning so we were up early. I looked at the prompt and thought of a spider's web, so I went out into the garden armed with my camera, but it started to rain so I came back in!

Then John suggested that I should take pictures of some flowers that I received on Monday. A friend from the church where we used to go had heard that we have both been in poorer health and called round with a big bunch of some of the flowers from church.

Here are a couple of shots:
