Born to perform!

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are doing well. Thankyou for any comments you left on my last post that included CB Hochanda show samples. I think the shows were lovely and Lesley did a fabulous job. Love my season ladies!

Today I want to share with you another visible image card I made - this one uses mostly stamps from the Born to perform set but the birds I added were from 'ahead of our time'.

The bottom background was made using distress oxides - peeled paint, cracked pistachio and broken china. The background behind the dancer was done using distress inks - the same colours plus twisted citron and lucky clover.

I love that tutu - its such a fabulous effect - I added the birds from the other stamp set - I think she rather looks like a magician!!!!

Its my lovely mums birthday today and we'll be off to Clarity Cumbria for the day - I have baked so I hope everybody is hungry! Tonight I'm taking mum to a show in the village - looking forward to that!

Big hugs
