Well November seems to be rushing by while I've been pondering how to depict the theme of FIREWORKS which was the obvious choice for the Quintiles this month. Eventually I had a flash of inspiration and decided to use some of the stamps from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) sets - Retro flowers/Vases because they gave me the impression of bursts of colour in the sky such as would be seen with fireworks. I used two different approaches here - one using the clear embossing resist technique, starting with yellow card and gradually adding images followed by a slightly darker colour of distress ink, then more resist with a darker colour and so on. The other one was made using very dark purple card with stamped and embossed images using various colours of Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders. The descriptive word was typed on the computer and cut out with a label die. It is lucky really that I actually got these made this month because it took me so long to come up with an idea but hopefully they will get there in time!!
