Pilkington Lane

Good Morning everybody, hope its not too cold where you are, blue skies and sun shining at present here. I made this card last week after watching Ali from Stamps Away on C & C  and saw a card she made so decided to get my stamps out and this is my interpretation.


Pilkington Lane Stamps
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Mica Powder Gold
Memento Black Ink

I stamped the image twice with memento onto tan card then tore round the edges of the large image and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain then used versamark on edges to apply the Mica powder. I then cut the 2nd image to be placed at a point that I choose layered this onto brown card and just coloured small pieces to make it stand out (sorry cannot remember the colours I used). Then layered everything onto the main card and added card candy.

Just had a call from Mick,     the hospital has been in touch and his appointment is for
 14th February at 9.00am so we shall be spending Valentines day at the hospital  they
have also told him to expect to be there for 4-5 hours depending on what they are going to do
