Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are at the middle of the week, it certainly feels like it's whizzing by really fast over here.
Weather permitting we have planned to go to the Water Park today, I will be honest and say that it's not my favourite part of the holiday but it's all about give and take and I have enjoyed just relaxing on the Beach or by the pool, which I like to do as it gets Paul to relax too, which he really needs.
I can't get on to any of the rides as they all have steps, I can manage the lazy river though, that's quite a chilled out ride, mind you I'm pretty sure that any one watching me attempting to get into and out of the large rings that you float around on would be having a right laugh! Moving with finesse is not my strong suit!
Paul says he isn't bothered about going on the water slides, but seeing the huge grin on his face when he gets off tells me otherwise. He gets almost forced into it as Lucy wants a partner to ride with so that she doesn't feel like a 'gooseberry' with Sophie and Lewis. I usually spend the day laying on one of their over priced sun loungers, reading my book.
Today's card is one I made the week before we came away, I wanted to use this lovely 'Intricutz' die (from Hobbycraft) again, so I die cut it twice and stuck them together to make the frame stronger and give it a little bit more depth.
My background was made by simple dusting a couple of different Pixie Powders onto my glass mat, I spritzed them with water and then spritzed my Watercolour card too, I then just swooshed my cars through the powders, dried it with my heat gun and then repeated until I had full coverage and a depth of colour that I was happy with.
After I had dried the background I adhered my beautiful frame to the centre and added the die cut 'Hello' (from the same set).
I mounted the piece onto white card and then on to a piece of 'Flirty Flamingo' card, that matched the Pixie powder colours I had used.
I hope you like it xx
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
