Good Morning Ladies,
What a wet and windy weekend, I can honestly say that the winds were way worse for us this weekend than they were last, the flooding too, the Thames has reached an all time high, I can't think what use those fields will be to the farmer as they have been permanently under water for months.
The journey to Stevenage wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, thankfully. Just as we parked up the heavens opened and it poured like you would never believe, torrential doesn't even cover it, we had to walk about 5 mins from car park but boy were we soaked! My coat is still wet through today, it's currently hanging on the Aga to dry out.
The show was lovely, small but lovely, it had all that we needed, it's a proper stampers show, with lots of stamps, different Brands too which is lovely to see. I think we all get bored of seeing the same stamps, it makes it so much harder to choose one or two!
Today's card is the result of a little 'play' session on Saturday afternoon, I was trying out the stamps that I got free on my latest Creative Stamper Magazine, there are some lovely individual stamps and some lovely little arrangements too. I decided to try a technique that was in the magazine, so I followed the instructions.
I stamped the first flower in White ink onto the bottom corner of a piece of Kraft card, I stamped onto a post it note and created a mask, then masked off the flower and stamped the foliage, I repeated this on both sides. I also added one in the opposite corner (at the top ), we need to add some colour to our flowers and foliage, which would be tricky on craft card, so I took some White Matt paint and added some to the flowers and leaves and left it a few seconds to dry.
I then used my colour pencils to add some colour to the flowers and leaves, now that they are white from the paint the colour really stands out. I wanted to use 'Neutral' tones to go along with this weeks TicTacToe Challenge .
I used Categories : Masking/ Flowers/Neutrals.
Today will be a slow and steady day as I have very sore legs etc, it was well worth the added pain though! xx
Enjoy your day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
