1000 facts, Just sayin!!!

In popular culture

 With LIM going for the 1000 submissions, I thought you might like to know a few '1000 facts' I gleaned these little beauties from Wikipedia, I ramble, apologies:0)
Here is another card for LIM33

I used Viva Decor Gold paint no 909 which is so shiny and a surprisingly good surface to stamp onto with Stazon black ink that is:0) The stamp is from a sheet of HIT stamps, I've had them for ages and this is the first time I've used one. I love vintage Christmas, that and sparkle mmmm perfect LOL My golden pearls are from Deborah's candy, oh lucky me! Aren't they swish!!:0)

A really beautiful and unusual Christmas card and Susan's right - a painted background looks so easy but is quite tricky! Love the 1000 facts - keep going! (Oh the things we do to get out of the ironing!) Vx

Penny said...

The gold splash of ink looks fabulous. (Not sure I am brave enough to just paint/spray randomly and then stamp on top but I am going to give it a try later on with an idea that's been in my head since yesterday. If it works it will be another LIM entry...if not, it will be in the bin!!)

Linby said...

Very informative post and a very atmospheric card, although not as scary as the last one LOL!
