Yes it was a memorable moment


My dear friend  Judy Beetson turning 70 last weekend. The day after her birthday she came to one of my home classes so I had to put on the thinking cap & make her a special card & my never fail chocolate cake


Not sure what happened but the rose red, river rock, baja breeze card using Everything Eleanor & Memorable Moments changed colour to marina mist, not quite navy & river rock (I wouldn't use river rock normally with the colours but it was too late to change as it was a pivotal piece and required concentration & a stamp-a-ma-jig & masking). I used my spritzer & the rubbing alcohol & a few drops of marina mist re-inker & Champagne Mist shimmer paint to make it sparkly too. Otherwise I think everything else is self-explanatory.


Recipe:
Stamp sets: Everything Eleanor, Memorable Moments
Ink: Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, River Rock
Paper: Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Other: Spritzer, rubbing alcohol, Champagne Mist shimmer paint, vintage faceted clear buttons, basic rhinestones, bakers twine (dyed with the Not Quite Navy mix in the spritzer), stamp-a-ma-jig.

Once again Judy congratulations on reaching this very memorable birthday & being so fabulously young.
