Anne's Nautical Card
Good Morning ladies,
It's going to be a warm one today I think, I do hope so as I would love to get the holiday washing dried and put away, it's mainly towels and bedding, a few bits of clothes too, but no more than a couple of loads. There were washing machines at the camp site but I prefer to wash bedding and towels on a good hot wash, I love to 'line' dry it too, something so satisfying to watch your bedding blowing in the breeze! I don't think that our temperatures will reach the 46 degrees that our Val had to endure yesterday, I just can't imagine getting anything done in that heat, the low 30's was only bearable while we were away because we were sat on the beach and could 'cool off' in the sea!
I hope its a little cooler for you today Val xxx
Now onto today's fantastic card, designed and created by our Anne, using a paint effect that John Lockwood demonstrated on Hochanda back in July I think, It is made using Glossy Card, I think that you mix Cosmic Shimmer glue with a little water and add either 'Pixie Powders' or something like (Brusho Pigment Powders) mixed in too, you then use a Wide Wash brush to swipe the paint over the card. (now I think this is the method, but I may have it wrong) so hopefully Anne can explain the method that she used when she pops in later.
I love how much depth and texture that this paint effect gives, it looks as though the boat is actually sailing on the ocean, look at the texture in the sky too, its incredible! Anne the Rope Die that you have used to place your sentiment on ties your card together perfectly. Thank you so much for allowing me to share your fantastic card and sharing this technique with all of us xxx
