Well i do apologise in advance, if there are any problems with this posting only Mr Blogger in his
We've had a fabby free day out at today South Lodge (it's where Obahma had a meeting when he came over to the UK and it's very swanky indeed), they had an open day and laid on lots of activities - H decorated 3 cupcakes (a frog, hedgehog and chick).
I have seen this stamp embossed in Silver, but i thought i would give it a whirl in Gold (i've used mirror card, as the pearlescent looked dull against the image) and i'm so pleased with the result, as i think it looks just as good as the Silver. I've used 2 different embossing folders on the cream card and i've also used my much neglected CB 'Ice Crystal !!. Would you believe the brads started off 'Green', but i covered them in Versamark, dipped them in gold embossing powder and heated - hey presto, now Gold brads.
