A 'Grungy' style of card
Good Morning Ladies,
We now have two sick babies, Sophie has succumbed to the same symptoms that Lucy has had and is still suffering with, so we are frantically cleaning all surfaces etc as I'm worried about Matt getting it as he is immune compromised as is Becca. Paul starts shifts from today so that no two people are working together, this week it's 6am to 1pm, next week it will be 2pm to 8pm, so lots of changes here.
Matt was in two minds whether to go away on Thursday, he is supposed to be going to the Lake District in his caravan, the caravan site are staying open and I guess he can self isolate in his caravan, probably less chance of catching it there to be honest.
Now onto today's card, now I know that this is a totally different style for me but I kind of like it. You build up your background 1layer at a time, giving so much detail.
I made the background using Fresco Chalk Paints on my Gelli Plate, using a Brayer to add the paint, it's a really fun way to make backgrounds. I then stamped the 'Hexagonal Stem' stamp onto my background and then stamped another onto another background and fussy cut it added it to my flower for a bit of dimension.
The sentiments are from another Tracy Evans Stamp set 'Hope' Both stamps are from Aall& Create.
I stamped the sentiment onto off cuts of my main background and then layered onto black card.
I hope that you all remain safe and well my friends, It is times like this that I am so grateful to have the blog x
Love and hugs to all of you,
