Good Morning Ladies,
Firstly today I want to say how sorry I am that you are all having so much trouble logging in to leave a comment, I wish there was something I could do to help, I have researched it and there seems to be nothing I can do, I will look into it again though as your comments are very important to me and each other.
Danielle had her first play with the 'Shaving Foam Technique' on Sunday and just look at the amazing results she achieved. She used some water based inks (Black & Blackberry Bliss) to drip the colour into the foam and the results are stunning, the effect looks almost like billowing smoke or oil on water, I think it's the combination of colours that Danielle has used that makes these cards look so amazing.
One little finishing touch that Danielle did was to go over the whole piece with a Versamark (clear ink) and add clear embossing powder to give a lovely shine to the piece, it really intensifies the colour too.
To finish the card Danielle cut several layers of each of those lovely sentiments in gold foil card and stack them for dimension, which works perfectly, I think that the sentiment would have got lost otherwise.
Thank you so much Danielle for allowing me to share your first attempt at this technique with out friends, I know they will love your cards as much as I do. XXX
Well ladies I got as far as clearing a space for my scan and cut and tidying away some of my other bits and pieces to get rid of some of the chaos that surrounds me as I find it so hard to be creative when I have no space around me and stuff piled everywhere, the only trouble is.. if I put things away I forget I have got them and don't use them, so for now my solution it to store things in boxes where I can see them. Do you have the same problems??
Karen even sent me a message encouraging me, which was so helpful, I have it all prepared now so fingers crossed today will be the day!!
Janet, I would never have believed that that image was a Napkin, what a genius idea, I have some really pretty napkins that I have used to decorate mdf but never thought of putting them on card, thank you so much for letting us all in on your little secret XXX
Karen, I hope that you and Alan have an amazing time in Majorca, you both deserve a break as its been quite a year so far! Relax and enjoy every moment. XXX
Lynda, I am so sorry to hear that you are still struggling my lovely, maybe you could ask to go back on the pregabalin as its been since you cut that out that you have been worse. Make sure you tell them how you are feeling. XXX
Lilian, I hope that the gusty winds calm down for you my lovely, there is nothing more frustrating than having your pots and planters destroyed by the wind. Are you expecting the glorious weather at the later part of the week like we are here? I do hope so XXX
Pat, sending hugs your way my lovely, I hope that all is as well as can be expected XXX
Sending huge hugs to all of you,
lots of love too,
