Create Art....

Hello friends :)
it's been a little while since I've gotten my hands inky
and oh how I missed it!
I've just finished making this little Artist Trading Card (2 1/2" x 3 1/2")
using some lovely new Darkroom Door Stamps - DDRS027 Artist Set.
Lot's of stamping, layering, stitching, embossing and as mentioned 'inky fingers' :)
I dipped the edges of the ATC in embossing powder & set it to give the edges a nice finished edge this also seals the edges of the stitching saving them from unravelling.Well I do hope you are having a lovely day....
it's just the most lovely weather here at the moment,
the days are becoming cooler and the autumn leaves are falling,
It's such a pretty time of the year.
I hope today you can find some time to Create :)

Great ATC Gillian! I know what it's like to "get back to being inky". Can't wait for my turn.
Keeping warm with the heater on!!

That is just beautiful!
I haven't had the nerve to sew on paper yet, but I think I feel some stitching coming on!
