Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are well and managing to stay dry in this miserable weather, our courgettes are growing by the day. It's quite exciting to go out each morning and see how things have grown with all the rain. The beans are almost all at the top of the 7ft frames with plenty of flowers on too.
I had a lovely visitor yesterday, Sue! a last minute plan that was a lovely surprise and took my mind off of todays scan too, we observed all of the guidelines as far as the pandemic is concerned, which is so hard when you just want to give someone a big old hug! It was so lovely to sit and have some crafty chat with a friend and we even went into the craft room and did a bit of crafting, I had great fun using the Salad spinner to make backgrounds using acrylic paints, they turned out really well, I will share them with you tomorrow, Sue was working on her Challenge card.
Your Next Challenge
The good thing is that this challenge will fit with any cards that you have to make for other things no matter what the occasion.
I might have a go at the 'Letterpress' technique, I tried once before but didn't get great results.
Using them on different mediums might be fun too, Tracy Evans does a technique with stamps where you build up layers of tissue (Blow your nose tissue) using pva mixed with water, i wonder if you could use this method with embossing folders too, watch this space on that one.
I have shared 3 different embossed backgrounds above, I hope that you have fun with the challenge, I got Paul to rummage under the stairs and get my big box of embossing folders out so that I could play.
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
Have a lovely weekend ladies,
Love and hugs to all,
