Swilrs and Curls for The Stamp Man challenge

Go On then who was inspired by The King of Distress Mr Holtz on TV on Tuesday? I was gutted not to hear more from him but there again he must have fired up my creative juices as I attacked my Alcohol inks for the first time in ages.
Another birthday card made for the oodles of birthdays in February and March. I used alcohol ink on some frosted plastic and the stamps are from the shabby french set stamped in black archival and also embossed in silver. I have used only edges of the flourish on the set and the wording is also from the same set - Fabulous value for the amount of stamps on the sheet.

These gorgeous buttons have been in my stash forever but I love the shape and they have lovely edging around them. Some black organza ribbon and its complete. Do stop by The Stamp Mans challenge where my team mates have produced some stunners. There is also direct links to the products used and with free p&p on orders over £10 which is perfect if you are in the mood to spoil yourself.
Michelle and I are also running an alcohol ink workshop on Saturday April 9th at The Stamp Man where we will be using alcohol inks on a variety of surfaces to make cards and gifts. Booking is essential as places are limited - to book email me here
