Cake,me old china?

We have a fabby sketch by Claire and theme of Add Embossing Dry or Heated over at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week.Here’s Claire’s sketch :

You can use either the sketch or theme.Even both!You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational  bunch.

For my card I chose these papers to go with Polly Pickleberry.They remind me so much of blue and white china (hence the the title of my post.Appologies to those who don’t know Cockney Rhyming Slang.China Plate means Mate).The papers are Cool Meadows Paper Collection and the Digital Stamp image is from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom.Both are available from Willow Designs.After colouring the image with ProMarkers I dabbed over the whole thing with a VersaMark pad and gave it sprinkling of clear embossing powder.I then gave it another layer followed by a top layer of holographic powder.I have to admit I wasn’t sure at first but it has kinda grown on me and will probably do it again.?The buttons started out plain but I did the same to them.Yep,even coloured ’em with ProMarkers.You do have to make sure the holes don’t clog up with powder especially if you want to thread them!
