Less is More - Colour Metallic

Hello!   What happened to the lovely weather the angel's are showering again this morning, they are very clean angels.   So no trip to the tip today with more de-cluttering stuff.   It is hard to believe how many 'useful' things and boxes have been tucked away here still a lot of it is going to charity shops and other good causes.   Anyone in the Eastleigh area might pop into the Shaw Trust in a couple of weeks if you are looking for alterables LOL

Not a lot of time to craft but have to have little bursts even if getting round to you all is shall we say slipping a little.   I am sorry and hope you understand that sorting a move and de-cluttering is a time consuming occupation.

This card is for the Less is More challenge this week which is a colour challenge to use metallic colours or effects you can even use real metal.   I have taken two little Tando pieces and triple embossed them with copper coloured ep.   While the final layer of ep was still warm and soft pressed into it with a Clarity stamp inked in black.    The background for the two pieces is gold thread ribbon and the squiggly frame Sakura glitter pens.

Now I'm going to sort all my peel offs for a special school but shock horror I will be keeping some!!!   If the rain stops I'm going to the tip.   Hope your day is more entertaining.
