Exciting news to share and a pretty aquatint card

I have to tell you my exciting news first. I have just joined the Crafter's Companion new 'The Inspirers' Design team. It means I get to work on even more exciting products from Crafter's Companion and share then with you. Really looking forward to working with the new team and learning new techniques etc.

If you would like to read a little bit more about The Inspirers here is a link to the blog post from Crafter's Companion: The Inspirers

My card for tonight is one a made a while back for a friend at work. I painted the background a couple of months ago using Aquatints and it didn't quite work for the project I was working on at the time so I put it to one side hoping it would be used at a later date.

I used the 'Clouds' Texture Elements embossing folder and stamped foliage along the bottom. The dog stamp is one of the first stamps I bought so is quite old. It is from the 'Popcorn the Bear' collection by Crafter's Companion. I can still remember the shop I bought if from although sadly it closed down a couple of years ago.

My friend requested the sentiment which I printed out and cut into a tag and I added a flower and ribbon to finish.

When looking for this stamp I 'found' so many of my older stamps at the bottom of the box and have decided to try and use them all at least once over the next 12 months. That said I do have a couple of other unfinished projects I should try and complete first!

Have a lovely weekend everyone and thanks for popping by x
