Sorry for not posting but life has just been so busy, out demonstrating my drunken robin christmas cakes stampin up classes christmas shopping to mention a few. I did have time to do this telescopic card using my new dies together with the paper pricking mats I love them. I will be putting a mark to let me know where I started though but generally I love the effect they leave.This is my favourite stamp set this year as everything on this card is using that one set called Beautiful Season. I've used my pens to colour the bird image and them painted the images with my aqua pens as this highlights and emphasis's the pictue. The writing is done using earky expesso and to finish off my new stampin up splonges to distress the edges.Hope you like this.
