I've been playing again...

...this time it's Martha Stewart's turn :o)
Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
Whilst looking for something else I came across my boxes of very neglected Martha Stewart punches. I have 14 single ones and I think 6 PATP sets so I thought it was about tome to use them :o)
Due to my penchant for CAS cards I can't make up my mind whether I like the result, but here it is anyway. Just in case anyone sees it as black and white, it is actually cream and brown :o)



All card used is from stash and is from the Paper Mill Shop before they all closed down. I used to love going up to the shop at McArthur Glen, Mansfield!
All punched with Martha Stewart apart from the Memory Box poppy, of course.
Inside I have used my photograph of the speckled wood flutterby I took a couple of weeks ago on the Nutbrook Trail, near Osbourne's Pond, Shipley Park. 
It is really a fair bit darker than it is here but I have lowered the opacity in a bid to make it look more ethereal (I hope). Sentiment is computer generated.

This is fabulous Jackie... love the use of the MS punches. Like you, I have a drawer full of them.. but they often make an appearance...

And another thing like you.... I still have lots of Papermill card in my cupboard... I have LOADS of cream hammered which I don't use any more and need it to be gone!

Hugs

It looks lovely' but I know what you mean. I struggle to make detailed cards. I have a couple of edging punches, but rarely use them. If I do, I then think the card is too fancy and bin it!
