Good Morning Ladies,
Great news ladies...my knee felt a lot easier yesterday, the swelling has gone down and stiffness has eased a little too, it still feels a little unstable and I am still being very careful but I am really relieved. We had quite a relaxed day yesterday, I kept thinking that it was Saturday not Sunday, I have no idea why, maybe because we didn't have a roast? Paul managed to get another Compost heap built using leftover pallets, it looked fantastic and was big enough to take a lot of the weeds and tree branches that we have trimmed over the past few weeks. We then go on to emptying the greenhouse, as the glass /potting shed is full to overflowing and I potted on a load of marigolds and coriander plants which created another 5 trays that still need the protection of a greenhouse, just an hours work (95% Paul) we had it cleared and ready to fill, it's great to have the extra space too.
We are going to be a bit nervous today as it's the last day for Sophie's Kickstarter project, I got blocked for a bit yesterday for checking too often!
What did you all decide to do? I hope you had the good weather that we did, I wasn't bright 🌞 sunshine all day, it got a little bit cloudy a couple of times and did rain a little at around 6pm, it was actually perfect weather to garden, not too hot, not too windy, hopefully we will get more done today, (when I say we....)!
Today's card is the result of a bit of a messy play session, on Friday I thought that I would get my Alcohol Inks out, I used a combination of 'Raspberry, Peach Bellini and Sunshine yellow' Alcohol inks on this piece, I used glossy card to drop the inks onto like photo paper, I did add some Pearlywinks Glitter spray over the inked background just to give a bit of sparkle. I will add a photo at a different angle below.....
I then trimmed it at an angle and added a sentiment stamped in black, I mounted the piece onto a 4 1/8 X 5 1/2 inch card base. I have to say I was amazed at the illusion of depth that you get when you play with alcohol inks, it's so great to see the pieces go from a bit of messy play to quite a good looking card.
Now if you are struggling for idea's for this challenge, I know some of you aren't keen on 'messy', you could just create a mixed media style background or use a stencil with distress oxides or any other medium, just have some fun with it xxx
I hope that you all have an enjoyable Bank Holiday Monday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
