Here Comes Fizzy Moon

Good morning. Well I can't believe it is so grey and damp and miserable here today after the glorious weather we have been having of late - but I guess the gardeners will all be happy!
Today I have another new birthday stamp to share with you and this time it's one of my new Fizzy Moon stamps - they are just gorgeous! I am beginning to think I have a thing for cute bears - I love Tatty Ted and Forever Friends and now Fizzy Moon :-)

I loved making this card - again I tried another new technique - I created the background papers myself using a Creative Expressions mask and embossing paste and then sprinkled with glitter before the paste dried - wow it really does sparkle!
I also then used the same mask and embossed a piece of cardstock through the Bigshot and then inked through the mask with Distress Ink.

Close up of image.
