In The Shadow

Morning LIMettes... What a week this has been... I'm really glad its over and now I'm off until after Easter so hopefully I can catch up on crafting and everything else... Possible give the house a good spring clean and cleanse.. My weekend is starting off with a trip to the hairdressers and then round to Rachel's later for a good chin wag and crafty session..

Anyhow, that's enough waffling, this weeks challenge at Less Is More is One Layer Card Week and the theme we have for you is
Shadow Stamping
Now this was a completely new technique to me and there were about 20 failed attempts at a card on my desk last night :-( In the end I went for using a white ink then over stamping with another colour or two!

Card Recipe:
Image: Pretty Petals Plus from Clearly Besotted
Sentiment: Waltzing Mouse Stamps
Hero Arts Inks: Unicorn White ( this is fab), Pool, Soft Pool and Soft Purple Shadow Inks

I have been taking out my stress sorting out everyones orders for the wine charms this week too...If you have ordered they will be in the post early next week.... Here are some of the ones I have made this week...

If you would like to order then check out my page here!

Hope you have a great Saturday...
