Pockets of this, that and the other.

Well, that's what the girls over at DCM's challenge is all about this week.........Pockets of fun.

It's my turn - (Lynne) - to set the dare this week.
OoooOOoooOOooooOOOoo!!!!!!!!My first Dare.
I’m so nervous, I can’t believe that it’s my turn already.I’ve gone for something nice and easy - had to break myself in gently.POCKETS I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets. Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that. Get the idea? Pockets and Pockets of Pockets.

The colours on the photo haven’t come out too well because it looks blue here when in actual fact it’s really Green but hey ho here’s my attempt anyway.


I decided to use my Woodware Clear Magic Stamps for the first time. This set is called Francoise Fun Flowers and I love the way you can make up the flowers any way you please on the acrylic block.


I started by stamping onto a square of cream card and heat embossing it in Silver. The flowers and leaves were painted with Twinkling H2o’s and then masked while I used a brayer over the top to create the Silver Hessian effect background. I also made the tag in the same way but this time I used the Twinkling H2o’s all over the background too. The pocket was made by stamping and embossing the same image onto pale Green Vellum which was torn across at an angle and the edge embossed in Silver. I wrapped this around the square card matching the up the image underneath and finished it off by adding some ribbon and two more stamped flowers attached with big brads. The square was matted onto some Green textured card from the DCWV Old World Stack before being mounted onto a cream square card with some small green brads.

Lovely card - and well photographed. I find it hard to show the twinkle of the H2Os on a scanner.

Sue - your pocket card is so pretty. I love the colours whether blue or green - they seem to blend together.

As for the sunset, it's fabulous. Pop over to my blog to see the other end of the day. My OH took sunrise a few days ago and it was equally stunning in the North West.
