Good Morning My lovelies,
I hope that you are all well, its the middle of another week, I have to say I am looking forward to Friday, although I hate wishing the week away.
I am waiting around to get the shower fixed today, I have to make sure that someone is home to show them where to go etc as it's in the Master Ensuite Bathroom and I can't get up there. We noticed that the shower had been leaking to the point that it was coming through the ceiling in the lounge, our Landlord did say that they had had this issue before, we could see that as there was a stain on the lounge ceiling in the same place as the leak. Paul had stopped it leaking through the ceiling by removing the old grout from around the bath and using proper sealant. Which worked pretty much straight away, the problem that caused the leak is coming from the shower itself, the chap came out on Monday and said that it needs a new shower hose, so that's what he is coming to do.
Actually I think Sue should be coming today so if nobody else is here she can take him up.
Paul was going to fix it all himself but I told him not too, the amount we are paying to live here is ridiculous so they can pay for any repairs!
Todays card is made using just one stamp and I colour. The stamp is called 'Pressed Flowers' and this leafy stem is just one of the lovely images in the set.
I stamped the leafy stem with 2nd generation Pear Pizazz ink, randomly all over the background to create some interest. I then put a piece of the card into the Stamperatus and stamped the main image two or three times to get a good depth of colour. I nipped the corners off of this piece with a punch and then mounted it onto a slightly larger piece of whisper white card, just to make the focal image 'pop' from the same coloured background, although I did add a little Pear Pizazz Ink to the edges of the white card to tone it down a little. I then wound a little twine around the bottom of the stamped image and frayed the ends.
So to make this card I used Pear Pizazz Ink and Card and The Pressed Flower Stamp set. If you didn't have the matching card you could use the ink pad to decorate the background and/or blend the colour onto it too.
It's a different style of card for me but sometimes it does you good to get back to basics.
I hope that you are all keeping warm,
Have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
