Photos never....

seem to do a card justice, I have 3 pictures of this card but you just cant see the shiney silver very well on any of them.  
 I love using this technique just now. I have masked the card and then played with my inks to make a border. I have used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Old Paper, Adirondack Pitch Black and Metallic Silver ink too.
While Im here Theres a big party going on from Thursday over on MAWTT. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
My Mums Craft Shop - Clean and Simple.
Less is More - Something Shiney
Platypus Creek Digitals - Black white and One Other (Silver)
The Shabby Tearoom - Photo Inspiration.
Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend.

I am off now to chill out and rest. I seem to have picked up a chest infection from somewhere. Boy is it sore to breathe. So cosy drinks and paracetamol are the order of the day.  Least the rain is off today though so thats good. Its done nothing but rain here for about 4 days. My garden is saturated. I hate that cause the weeds love it and keep popping up. 
Enjoy your Tuesday whatever you are up too.
