Coffee pot with diana

Hello there! How are you today? I hope you are well and happy. If not sending hugs! Did you have a good Sunday? We did - Penny had her first gymnastics certification and Lucy and I went to a Christmas Market at Kirkby Lonsdale. That was lovely. We didn't buy anything but the atmosphere was lovely!

After lunch at my mums we all came home so I could make my coffeepot card for tomorrow. Thats when I realised I hadn't blogged last weeks make from Diana. Here's my version - using distress inks and blending with a tool - the stamp was from the company that was in place before it changed to chocolate baroque.

Such a pretty stamp ...

I used some pens to colour the image.

The star around the outside was stamped in gold ink and the central star was done on shrink plastic.

I love this card - so pretty in colours. In dianas version which looked beautiful she brayered the background and stamped the image over the top and left it as line art. Very effective too.

Have a good monday!
