Cuttlbug, scraps and prehistoric embellishments

So, the title of my blog post says it all. I used my Cuttlebug, scrap paper and prehistoric embellishments from my stash. The image should look familiar to one of my crafty friends too...

I started off by colouring my LOTV image with my trusted Sharpies. It was a therapeutic experience and a good practice colouring session :) I played with outlining the different areas in darker shades and colouring in with lighter shades. I am getting there people! I am getting there!

I got a stunning set of border embossing folders for Christmas from Christi Usher over at my Paper Craft Planet Group and I utilised it on the sides of the stamped image just to give it a bit more pop. I then dug in my ever growing pile of nice things that I avoid using and pulled out some wooden photo corners and sequins (yes, I even hoard sequins)

I think the card turned out quite CAS, and I like it!

Until my next post, Happy Monday!



  1. Love your card Petra, the sequins make a nice change from beads or buttons.

  2. Lovely card, Petra. The embossing edges are fab.

  3. That really works! Not that I'm really are so good at putting a new slant on something.....I really do like the idea of embossing a little on the frame....genius!

Apologies to the REAL people out there who now have to go through this painful exercise.....
