Not what was first intended.....................

I started by embossing a card blank and swiping it with Archival ink to catch the raised areas and coloured the background with DI but then realised that the ink had seeped through to the back of the card - so I cut the front of the card blank down to make a topper....................
I embossed some CE Teal foundation card with the same embossing folder and matched the pattern up before layering onto a new, larger card blank................................

I used some CE Iced Snow on the dazzler to tone the colour down a little.......................

CE Teal card used again to create a shadow behind the sentiment........................

Ingredients used:-

SW Rambling Blossom E/F
LeCrea Daisy Die
SW Faux Quilled Leaves
SW Refined Rectangular Frame
MB Butterfly die
Teal Dazzler
Aquamarine and Cobalt Blue Archival Inks
Peacock Feathers DI

Well I'm not sure if this is what is known as a 'happy accident' but I'll take that!!
I hope you are all keeping well and as always thank you for passing through and looking at what I get up to in my spare time......................
it is much appreciated.
I have both the kids and partners coming for Sunday lunch tomorrow and probably the four legged gran-puppy too - can't wait. It is our Sons birthday on Monday, so a bit of a celebration for that too.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, whatever you are doing.
