Tuesday Taggers

Good afternoon!

The current theme at Tuesday Taggers is "Diamonds are Forever". Now you're going to have to look closely at this one to see the diamonds!


Did you see them? I've double embossed the background card. Firstly I popped it onto my Scor-Pal and embossed diagonal lines across one way and then the other way to create a background of diamonds, then I embossed the card again in a Crafts Too floral embossing folder.

The image is from a Stampin' Up! set called "Bloomin' with Beauty". I stamped it with Versamark "Spanish Moss" ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder before colouring it with Copics.

It's another simple card but that's all I can manage at the moment. I've had a cold for a couple of weeks which has now stuck in my chest and doesn't want to shift.

Take care..
