Oh such a lovely day yesterday, I had washing blowing on the line all day, it felt like middle of Spring out there. I had all the windows open too, it was a little chilly in the shade though.
The only problem was, while I was busy in my craft room (no windows open) Mr Sainsbury must have decided that it would be a good day to 'fertilise' his fields, OMG the smell was terrible, it was billowing through every open window. Lord only knows what the washing will smell like, lets hope that Lenor with Febreze can over power 'Slurry' !!
Now let's talk about today's card, it is quite small, its about 4 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches. It was one of the off cuts of my Pixie Powder backgrounds.
I spritzed some watercolour paper and gently tapped out a little of the 'Aqua Lagoon' and 'Golden Mint' onto the wet card, I then gave one last spritz of water and let the powders work their magic.
At first I wasn't that impressed, so I just left them on my Craft Room windowsill to dry, when I looked at them again on Friday morning I was amazed and how much they sparkled, I was close to binning them after Sue left on Wednesday but I am so glad I didn't, so my Advice......just leave it over night before throwing it away.
I didn't decide what to do with it until yesterday though, I was looking through some stamps and came across this one called 'Picture Perfect' from Inkyliscious, it was the perfect size for my off cut of card, so it was like it was 'meant to be' I have had these stamps (set of 2) for years and hadn't used them, I found them when I was rummaging for 'something old' last week. It was like finding buried treasure!!
So I popped my dry piece of watercolour card into my Stamperatus and inked up my stamp with Versafine ink (I chose Versafine as it usually picks up all the fine detail), then I just let it dry and matted onto black card then a matching green and finally onto a black card base.
I thing it's very 'Arty' , hahaha, something totally different for me, but we have to embrace the challenge!
I have tried to pick up the sparkle from the Mica in the Pixie Powders on the photograph without much success. I did have fun though.
I might try playing with some embossing folders today, oh and I bought some masks as Farnborough so I might try them too.
I hope you are having fun with the challenge ladies,
Love and hugs to all,
