Afternoon all,
Well a discovery of sorts when playing around with the metallic inks! If you swipe Metallic Pink on pink card it comes out quite "pucey"...No, Cheryll...I did not say "pukey!"

I love this Stamp It stamp of the boots. It seems to be the perfect size a lot of the time and I have used it heaps since I acquired it. It has been coloured with mainly a Black Grape Prisma pencil (just a touch of Pink) and accessorised with little bling.

I didn't get to do much today as I had to go into Sarina for parts for hubby, so did the groceries as well. I am not going to the Melbourne Cup this year, so perhaps tomorrow will be THE day!

Just lovely Shell, definitely not pukey!! :) Every time I see one of your cards with this stamp I think "I should get one of those" ... how long did this sit in my box and I didn't use it?!! lol. Sometimes you have to see someone do something wonderful with a stamp to really appreciate it.

This is a great stamp! Love the cuttlebug embossing with the metallic ink (I've tried something like it before- yours is better!). Great job.
