40's ATC with Attitude

For my ATC base I used a piece of gold card. I stamp a few scrollie bits (using just elements of a Tim Holtz Stamp)  on it and embossed them in gold, and then inked over the ATC edges and embossed that. The corners started to lift a little, and I liked it so I heated one corner until it melted right back. My pictures (in case you don't already know) are of Shirley Temple, at different ages through the 40's. I used to love watching her films as a child (not that I was alive in the fourties I hasten to add lol). I just have a little gold chiffon bow and a futterby to finish off the glitz, all from stash. 

I'd like to join ATC's & Cards with Attitude for their Anything Goes Challenge.

Easely Love, Love, Love.

Been A good while since I posted, I've still been crafting, bit by bit, but not had my head on straight enough to post...hopefully I'll manage to make sense!!

I made this Anniversary card for friends, a lovely couple. It had been a while since I'd made a white on white and I enjoyed making this one. Sorry the images are so fuzzy...you just can't get the staff now-a-days lol. It's a double easel card. 
 Image from a set by Penny Black. Called 'A Good Catch'. I stamped in black and embossed in clear, was a bit of a mistake as made it difficult to colour some of the tiny parts with my pencils....I used Lyca. I'm still not very good with them, but persevering. I dry embossed the backgrounds and then inked the raised edges and wet embossed those. I also went over them with mica spray.....I wanted it lovely and shimmery.

I found the sentiment online. Two great sites for verses and sentiments are Quote Garden and  Imag-n-ation. Imag-n-ation also sell great digi images amongst other things. 
My flowers are crocheted, I've put some of my lovely mother of pearl buttons as centres. 

 I have a little lift up flap for space to put my personal message, with another little quote, I quite like this one and thought it went well with the image. 
  The letters are made with pearl fimo, I used fimo cutters, and I've used a mica spray over the top. 
I'd like to enter this in the challenge at 
Hotshot Crafts Blog for Easel Cards.
