Triple Stamping

Welcome to my new followers, Pauline, Christine and Carole Ann.  I hope you enjoy my following my creations and I appreciate any comments you leave.

I've seen a few cards around blogland using the technique I've used here. They looked so classy (and difficult) and I'd no idea where to start.  I went onto the Splitcoaststampers website to see if I could find how to do this and, sure enough, there was a tutorial, and when I read it I couldn't believe how simple it was to achieve such a stunning effect.  If you want to try it out, just follow this link.  

Sorry this card looks a bit wonky, camera operator error!  It is straight in real life, honest!

Pretty cold and grey here in the East of Scotland but hey 14 sleeps and I'm off to Spain with Mr C for 3 weeks.  Can't wait to get some sunshine and see all the friends we made when we lived there.  I've already started getting stuff looked out that I'm going to take with me.  I won't be taking any craft stuff as I'll be going to card class while I'm there and June will provide me with goodies to make a few bits and pieces.  I started the class and June happily took over when we decided to come home.  I have got my knitting pins looked out though and Mr Postie brought me a lovely parcel of baby wool yesterday so I'm going to be busy again.

That's Mr C on his week off now and his first task is to take his car to the garage.  There's something wrong with the electrics and his dashboard is like Blackpool illuminations at times!

Hope you all have a good day.

Wow Anne, What a fantastic card and I went straight to the link to see how you did it. It looks such a complicated card to make, but i came straight back and made two cards in an hour. I LOVED doing it.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers on a large flower stamp and did exactly what you had done with black matting.
Thank you so much for showing it and your card is stunning.
