Just Add Ink #203

This week It's Just add a sketch at Just Add Ink

This is my take on the Sketch.
I have used Basic Grey and some very old DSP which I still love . In line with my efforts to stop hoarding stuff I am trying to use up some of my treasures! The sentiment is embossed with the Pewter Embossing Powder and layered on the Silver Glimmer Paper.
For the banner I used some Delicate Details lace tape and the flowers are punched with another very old product.
I always like to add a little detail inside, usually a strip of the coordinating Paper from the card front. The sentiment inside says Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, from the One in a Million set.

The flowers are given shape by using a soft mat underneath- I use an old Mouse mat cut down to size. With the round tip of a stylus you put pressure in the centre and then rub in gentle tiny circular motion to give the flower shape. I have layered 2 together and filled the centre with a dot of Dazzling Details glitter and a tiny pale green diamonte.

Thanks for looking, Orders welcome!, Liz
