Razzleberry Foliage

Wow! Two posts in one day, I must be on holidays and have new stamps to play with :)

There is a great colour challenge at The Paper Players this week.  The colours were perfect because the hostess for my next club asked me if we could do something with Razzleberry.

I decided to combine it with the wonderful new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

My hostess had also asked if I could show everyone the emboss resist technique and so this card was born.


Ingredients :
Stamps : en francais, french foliage, tiny tags
Card : white, olive, razzleberry
Ink : basic grey, versamark, razzleberry
Other : linen thread, jewellery tag punch, white embossing powder, olive ribbon (ret.)

None of these stamps are actually new in the catalogue but they’re all new to me.  They’re all birthday presents I received yesterday from my family and I’ve had so much fun playing with my new toys today :)
I think my club are really going to enjoy making this card.
