Eureka Moment

I thought I was going to have real problems this week with Rainbow Lady's Challenge which is 'Stamping on Unusual Materials', set by Guest Designer Martha. Then this morning whilst getting dressed I remembered I had some sheets of cork in my stash. I bought this ages ago to enter a challenge on the Joanna Sheen forum, which was to use cork. After buying the cork, so that I could enter, I never got around to it and the cork has been lying unloved and unwanted at the back of a cupboard ever since. So my unusual material is cork. I stamped various stamps from the Elusive Images Wild Meadow unmounted plate with green Stazon onto the cork and went round the edges with Tea Dye Distress ink. The backing paper is Cuddly Buddly, the mirror card and ribbon is from my stash and I finished off with a simple peel off sentiment on cork and mirror board.

I had to scan the card because I couldn't get a clear pic of my stamping. It's sill not too clear but you can get the idea. Thank you for visiting today and for all the wonderful comments you leave Beryl x
