Bliss! By Tina Barnett

Hi Gang! I am back with you again using some more Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps. This cutie is called "Aufully Comfy". It's by The Artistic Stamper

I started my card using an 8 inch by 8 inch card (my preferred size to work with). I used a Tim Holtz distress ink to edge around the card.

then used some of my new favourite ever item! Coredinations card stock. You MUST try this!! you can do so much with it, emboss, distress, stamp etc etc I love it! Anyway..... back to the card lol!

I used the Coredinations card as a base piece by tearing the corner off and screwing it up then sanding it. I like the way it doesn't sit flat (you could make it sit flat but that's not the look I wanted).
I then used the Coredination card as layers for the stamp. Again I distressed them. The tones of the card are amazing. I used the same Distress Ink to colour my image.

The "bliss" is made using one of Tim Holtz book plates and tickets. I then filled in the opening with Crackle accents .

I finished the card of with Distress Stickles , flowers, hat pins and gems. Not forgetting a little bead also by Tim Holtz .

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking. Until next time!
