LIM9 number 2, :0)

 Hi there, I won't waffle on ( just for a change LOL), here's card number 2 for the LIM challenge ( a touch of red)


I've used Paper Artsy , Architecture plate 2 stamp and sentiments from Whimsy Stamps Time Flies

A Cherry Pie stamp for the roundel, which is stamped onto red velumn and then crackled with Tim Holtz Rock Candy and some bling added. It curled horrendously but I managed to tame it by coating the underside with Diamond Glaze, that made it firm, then I stuck it on to the card with Art Glitter dries clear glue, that worked and I could then apply the rock candy.






By using the holographic red behind I hope it's given the roundel some depth.
I hope you like it, I certainly had a lot of fun making it today:0) xxx

Wow, all that effort paid off! Love your holographic, blingy bit of red. (And yes, Thickers are letter stickers -- American Crafts makes them, and most scrappers are obsessed with them! Thanks for stopping in!)

You come up with such unusual designs, I love them and your stamps are fab. I could have a lovely play with your collection. I think I tend to be too traditional and need to be more adventurous.
I love your red circle. I thought it was UTEE at first so you've certainly created a brilliant effect of depth.
