knock knock

who's there?
kanga who?


another month and another card swap.
essential baby again.
this time i needed it to be a thank you card and we had to use the black magic technique. i changed mine a bit and instead of using pencils i used my chalks to get the image i wanted.

 i opted to use my all aboriginal stamp set as i hadn't used it for a while and i wanted to use a more unusual set for this theme. 
i also followed a sketch by someone somewhere whom i can't remember lol-will pop a link in when i find it (or if someone reminds me). 
i used a tim holtz embossing folder through my big shot and rubbed some cajun craze over the card.
the kangaroo is done by stamping with white craft ink, heat embossing it to dry and then going over it with coloured chalks aka the black magic technique. 
i added a safety pin with ribbon and twine and sentiment to the corner 

i have also decorated the inside to make it look prettier lol

here are all 6 of them ready and waiting to be posted to the lovely sally my stamping buddy at essential baby.
please feel free to come on over and join in our little swap-everyone is welcome :>

cheers ears
