about 6/7th attempt
Good Morning Ladies,
Not a brilliant card today I'm afraid, but I got so carried away playing with different inks, glitters etc, adding more detail and even having a go with the "fluffy puffy stuff",
Which I 100% recommend it's much fun, I can see it being used for so many different things too.
The kit to you need to have as go at this technique comes from Inkyliscious.co.uk, a British company with a fantastic range of stamps, fantastic quality stamps too, they invented the 'inkyliscious Ink Duster" which is a double ended brush that you apply ink with, they blend really well, very easy to use too.
To achieve the subtle blue tinge I added Colour Box White ink first then brushed over the top with Adirondack Denim in 1st attempt and on attempt 6/7 Paris Dusk Memento ink pad.
I absolutely love the effect, the idea is absolutely genius, its very addictive too, I just kept playing, looked up and it was 10.39pm, I started at about 6.45, I looked round and saw I had two totally cold cups of tea, that's how engrossed I was.
I have the larger log cabin so I may try that today and make a larger template/mask by cutting a piece of acetate with one of my spellbinder Bauble Dies, fingers crossed it will work. I will let you know!
I know a few of you have this kit and I would love to see what you have made so far.
I ended up throwing this card together so I had one to share with you, not one of my best!
Totally unrelated subject now, Sue this will make you smile!
When I got back from Pat's yesterday Paul had just got in from the Allotment, he was fed up as he had gone into the Fruit cage and got some squashed raspberry on the arm of house T shirt, (why he was wearing one of his best 'cream' T-shirts is beyond me), anyway as Sue and I were chatting he came down with his dripping shirt, he had tried using some handwash detergent to remove the stain, apart from turning the stain purple/blue it had done nothing, so I quickly checked on Pinterest for tips on removing raspberry, the first one I came across said simply.....
Hold the stain over a bowl
Take a kettle of boiling water
Pour boiling water over stain
So I did just as it said and watched the stain disappear before my eyes, Paul and I were both totally gobsmacked, you can't even see where the stain was!
It works for all fruit stains, so simple, yet so effective!
Tomorrow I am hoping to do a review/buyers guide to paper trimmers/guillotines,
So can I please ask for your input, I will put up my trimmers and my experience with them, I have a review from Karen too, you can either email me your experience of trimmers and I will add it or you can add your thoughts in the comments on the day.
I think it will be helpful for someone buying a trimmer, I have recently and boy did I have a nightmare and ended up wasting £35 .
I will do the same thing a couple of times a month, please let me know if there is something in particular you are interested in.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs,
