Goodbye Card

Hello Everyone

Firstly, apologies for not having posted for a few days.  My husband was involved in a rather serious motorbike accident and was hospitalised for 2 days.  Thankfully he is now back home again and he is on the mend.  It was a rather scary time for us and I am just thankful that his injuries were not too bad, considering that there was not much left of the motorbike. The angels were certainly watching over him!!!

I made a Goodbye Card for the Head Mistress of my sons school, who has moved on to another school.

I created the blocks by doing some resist, embossed stamping and then used some distress paint to paint over the stamping, along with a whitewash. It was initially a big block, which I then cut up into the smaller blocks.

It was quite a lot of fun trying this technique and I was happy with the result.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
