A Rainbow Thank you
Good Morning Ladies,
I think it's Monday, so welcome to the start of another week here on the blog.
Yesterday turned out to be a glorious day, Paul and I sat out in the afternoon, absorbing some much needed Vitamin D, Paul spent most of the day pottering in the garden, it's like he has his allotment with the added benefit of no travel and tea & coffee on hand! I do love to see him relaxed though.
We had a fun family quiz last night, we all used an app called Zoom to join together online and Becca organised the quiz questions, it was great fun, Paul and I were the winners, which was mainly due to Paul's knowledge in the General Knowledge round. It was a lovely way to see all my family together, Sophie & Lucy are hosting the next quiz.
Today's card is a quick and simple 'Thank you' card, I stamped 'Thank you ' all over the background of my card and then added white embossing powder and heat set to create a resist, I used Distress Oxides to create a rainbow of colours across the card, I spritzed the card with water to Oxidize the ink, lastly I laid the 'Wavy Lines' mask over my piece and spritzed again laying kitchen roll over the mask to soak up the excess water. This left a subtle hint of the pattern, after drying the background I wiped over with a piece kitchen roll to remove the ink from the stamped 'Thank you's'
To finish my card I used the my SU 'Thank you ' die to cut 1 black and 1 white pieces, I laid the white one over the black, slightly offsetting to give a shadow. Then added the 'From All of Us'.
This would be a great card for our Bin Men that are due round this week.
Lilian, I emailed you yesterday about joining us on messenger, Janet it would be great to have you in the group too.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
