Push Off!

 Good morning, and a very happy Sunday. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I'm over on the Lost Coast Designs Portal To Creativity with my second Sentimentally Yours card.

Those of us who have been allowed to live in the same house as a cat, will know this sentiment to be absolutely true - but only if the cat wanted to, no way is he pushing if he doesn't!

I started by stamping and clear embossing the Carmen's Veranda Compas Square 4 times. Then I dipped and dragged in Distress Oxides in various shades of blue. Blueprint Sketch is my new favourite colour. I could have made an oxide background first and then embossed in white, but I like how the embossing repels the ink if you do this bit first. (And I have a massive tub of clear embossing powder, but only tiny ones of white!)

The idea was to use the map panel in one piece, but decided that it would look nice on black so I chopped it up and layered onto a black background.

Yoga Cat has been stamped, coloured, and clear embossed.

These are my stamps. The sentiment is a great size, and really easy to chop up once stamped.

I hope you like it, and that you join in too with your 'Sentimental' pieces.

It's a Grand Prix weekend, which means that Neil won't notice that I've not been there for hours! 2 hours of chat before (yawn) lot of cars going round and round (even bigger yawn) then let's talk about it and show the highlights after (shoot me now!) So it's into the craft room for me! I hope you have a happy day too whatever you are doing xx
