Free Stamps....

Well I have finally managed to get a card done after hubby worked from home yesterday and I could not get into the craft/office room without him being in my way especially when I received Sheena`s Paint Fusion CD and Craft Artist Platinum in the post, I sooo wanted to play with them. I decided that if he was working from home today I was going to put him in the shed lol. Thankfully he went to work. I thought I would have a go at making a card with the free stamps that came in Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine and this is what I came up with. My take on this is Clean and Simple and I am loving this colour at the moment.
Recipe

A6 card
 Stamps from Magazine
Ribbon from stash
Martha Stewart Punch
VersaMagic Ink  Sea Breeze
Embossing folder
Liquid Pearls Baby Blue
Memento Ink Tuxedo Black

I distressed the edges of the card with Sea Breeze then embossed the matting and punched both ends, added the ribbon and attached to card. I cut the shape for image from template and stamped the image and again distressed the edges, added this to card and added liquid pearls down one side, still getting used to getting a straight line :O).
