Happy Holiday Times

I've just had a week off work. The weather was beautiful so I made the most of it one of the days and went for a trip to Wairarapa.

I had missed my friends birthday who lives over that way so thought it was a good excuse to hand deliver her card and have a catch up at the same time.

First Attempts....

I have a habit of ordering products and forgetting about them pretty soon after they arrive. Recently I came across my Motorcycle stamp from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue and decided I would ink it up for the first time.

The sentiment is embossed, but you can't really tell from the photo. It was my first attempt at embossing. I have used Aqua Painters to colour the stamp. It was also my first attempt at water-colouring, except for at a Paper Diva's Team Training Session.

Cardstock: Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Stamps: Motorcycle, So Happy For You (SAB 2011)
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Garden Green
Other: Hodgepodge Hardware, Aqua Painters, Distressing Tool from Cutter Kit, Embossing Buddy, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder
