AAA Card Challenge - Ink Blending

Hello folks!

Is it really two months since I made a card? I've been back to the UK with the kids for a few weeks and left my mojo somewhere over the Pacific. Every time I go home the jet lag seem to gets worse on the return and the thought of making a card exhausted me!  Must be a sign of age...

Anyway, I'm getting back into the swing of it with a simple card for AAA Cards - their latest challenge is to do some ink blending:

I blended a circular panel with distress inks, added some gold embossing using Paper Smooches Curls and Swirls and a pretty die cut dragonfly. The sentiment's Winnie and Walter. 

Not sure whether that mojo's been found yet but it's a start. Hopefully it won't be another two months between inky sessions!

Happy stamping,

Claire x


  1. love the shine of the gold embossing powder, it looks so smooth, I thought it was foil, well done, hope your jet leg passes. Thank you for playing with us at AAA cards

  2. I know exactly what you're talking about... my mojo disappears in the Indian ocean when I travel home!
    Good to see you again with this gorgeous card.
    Hugs x

  3. Claire, I am in love with your gorgeous card. This black dragonfly stands out beautifully on the circle with gold embossing. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin
