I have been playing with some prezzies from Santa but have to admit I was a lucky girl and got a bit bogged down not knowing quite what to play with first.
I was browsing around some of my favourite blogs and thanks to my lovely teamie over at Eclectic Ellapu, Becca a true damsel of distress inkyness (she has some great news to share and some fab art so do pop on over) I decided to use a lovely sketch from over at Retro sketches challenge site.
I used my new Die and stamp set "Geek is Chic" by My Favourite Things bought from the Simon says stamp site, a pad of Kraftcore in Tim Holtz distress ink colours, and my corner chomper by we are memory keepers, anything that could get rounded xmas day did!
I just loved using these products, I stamped the background using two tone inking in a variety of distress ink colours, mat and layered using my kraftcore paper, I love the texture on this stuff. I then cut one set of glasses out and layered the other set on some funky foam, (a great tip from the awesome Jennifer McGuire) to add some dimension
I finished up with one of the fab sentiments from the set, I heat embossed them in white, I have quite a few as I am in Lurve with them all and finally chose this one. The sentiments are really quirky and fun.
I am entering this card in the Retro Sketches challenge, thank you so much for getting me out of my OMG too much new stuff where do I start funk,
