Good Morning Ladies,
Lynda made this absolutely stunning card as an extra challenge card for me to share with you on Sunday but I loved it so much and thought it looked as though Lynda had spent hours on it that I thought that it deserved a day of its own.
Distress ink : Pine Needles
Distress Oxide ink: Fossilized Amber, Fired Brick
I am amazed at the variety of colours you have got in that background by blending those 3 colours, I am certainly going to have a play with this technique when I get my craft room sorted.
Do you all have some inks you could play with? Anything blendable really, I thought that maybe we could do it as a mini challenge or something. Let me know your thoughts.
The dies Lynda has used on this card are Sue Wilson's 'Mechanical' die range, including :
Such a fantastic card Lynda thank you so much for allowing me to share it with our friends. You always blow me away with the amount of work that you put into a card, I have kept every single card that you have ever given me, right from that very first black and white one that you gave me when we first met at Ally Pally all those years ago, they are more than just a card to me they are a gift.
I think it's the same of any hand made card we give, it's something we have thought about, considered the recipients likes and interests and then tried to make a card that will make them smile when they open it. It's a totally different experience to picking and sending a shop bought card.
I am hoping that my craft unit will arrive today, although I'm not sure how many bits it will be in, as we didn't want to pay the extra £150 assembly fee, I'm guessing it will be in huge boxes as I ordered the plastic storage boxes too. It's being delivered by Fed Ex so I think you can track it to get an estimated time of delivery. At first I thought that £50 was too high for delivery but I imagine it's down to the size.
I think that somebody should start another company in competition with Storage 4 Crafts though, if you can save £375 + by using a magazine code they are clearly making a lot of profit on these units.
I will add photos as we put it together and as I fill it up.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs,
