Stacked Acrylic ATC Birthday Card

Afternoon all, Thanks for stopping by.
I have been playing with the Stacking Atc's I helped designed with That's Crafty for my mixed media Atc class.
Today I have used it as a Birthday card for my sister who's birthday is tomorrow.
I have used stamps from Carabelle Studio, My sister had a pair of red shoes like these when she was young and this stamp just put me in mind of her wen she was young.
I have added a layer of some gold leaf using the Stampendous Stamp n Bond. This product acts like an embossing powder and once heated you add the gold leaf, It's so much cleaner and easier than using the gilding glues.
To add my colour I have used Decoart Media Fluids. and for the spacey look for the back ground I added a couple of pinches of Stampendous,s fine white embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hopefully I will see some of you at the Andy Skinner/Tando-Creative Ministry of Mixology retreat next month xx.

Craft Stamper Paris Tribute Feature.

Morning all. Thanks for stopping by. 
I was given the amazing opportunity recently to design a piece for the Craft Stamper magazine for a Decoart feature. Of course a great big thanks to Decoart and Craft Stamper. 
The magazine comes out today and I have created a wall hanging using some off cuts of wood, a heart and some wings, lots of Decoart paint and Carabelle Studio stamps along side some of Andy Skinners new stamps from Stampendous. 
The magazine has the full project with lots of detail pics and a little step by step. 
Again. Thanks you Trish and the team at Craft Stamper and Decoart for the opportunity xx.
