PLASTIC FANTASTIC!....and OH SO JUICY!




Two dares together today, both from http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com
the first one is the 'Little Extra' which uses Blonde Moments papers, Tilda stamp coloured with watercolour pencils, K & Co rub-on and a sprinkling of gems - all in juicy colours.
The second card caused a few problems....I decided to use the plastic lid from a flower shaped tub of flowers and embossed it about a zillion times before I got a decent impression from the Hero Arts flower stamp. Papers are from The Paper Company and stamps are Basic Grey.
Gotta go pack now for Harrogate....................Yeah!
