Firstly dont forget my bloggerversary candy, available here, loads of goodies!

A day or so ago, I posted some pics of stuff I had made during the workshops at Harrogate GNPE, so I mounted one of the bits, and here it is,


This was made in Barbara Greys Clarity workshop on the sunday Morning, and is a brayered on Splodge Mat background, and using a set of Clarity Stamps created for the event. I must admit working on the splodge mat makes it a lot easier to get the most from your ink, eliminate the wheelie, and give a good blend.
I embossed a piece of Brown Core-dinations cardstock, with the New 6x6 dots embossing folder, and sanded it back, then added a gold organza ribbon, added a length of sticky gems down the ribbon, and added a small bow, of gold edged satin ribbon, coloured brown with a promarker, Caramel, to tie it to the back ground. I then simply Stamped the Stag from the Scotland kit in Memento onto some clear shrink plasctic, cut it out, punched a hole in his antlers, and heated it, attaching it to the centre of the bow with Jump rings.
I really like this card, such a shame my Dad's birthday was a few months ago, lol,
