Brayering - my take on Michelle Zindorf's latest creation

Here are tonights creations, a friend card with some new DSP and the Just Believe set with brayered background, after stamping 'friends' over the circle flower pattern I realised it would have been better in the middle... but never mind....

Next is a quick card froma recent trademe bargin, the one of a kind set, recently retired. I bought this set as it has 3 small blossoms in it (not used on this card) which go with the boho blossoms punch which I have on order to go with a level one hostess set I will be getting soon, so thought I'd get this set so I have another stamp to go with the punch.... (how easy it is to justify my purchases LOL!)

And lastly my take on Michelle Zindorf's latest brayering card - check out her link on my blog list to see how her card looks.. I never seem to be able to brayer mine to look as good as hers, hopefully practice makes perfect!

Owl with moving eyes

Here is my first creation of the weekend...

I watched the original dvd of April Fools Day recently and it had one of those pictures on the wall with moving eyes, so I had a thought of how I could do that with the stampin up owl and here is my creation. When you pull the arrow the eyes move from left to right, it's much better when you see the real thing of course as the photo's don't quite do it justice!
