Good Morning Ladies,
Is it really Thursday already?! This week is flying by. I finally got Mum's Ashes Interment date finalised yesterday after a phone call, it was all sorted, the Town Clerk seems such a lovely lady, she couldn't have been more helpful, on the form it said I needed the Certificate of Cremation but the Funeral Directors won't issue that until we collect Mum's ashes, so I was trying to arrange for the Certificate to be faxed over, the lovely lady just said not to worry about it and said I could take it in or post it after the Interment. So thankfully thats all sorted for Mum's birthday on 28th. I am going to organise a small plaque to pop on her place as we need to wait for the ground to settle for a couple of months before her stone is laid. It's such a relief to have it all sorted.
Today's card was my first play with the Kaleido Foiling machine, you can see in the picture that I didn’t get 'perfect' coverage, I tried twice but got the same result, I'm not sure if it’s the paper I used, the above card is on Watercolour card, there is no pattern from the Watercolour card as the Kaleido appears to iron it flat, so it turns into 'Hot Pressed Watercolour ' card. I seem to remember John saying something about Mixed Media card being best.
I stamped the 'Dancing Dragonflies ' Woodware stamp using the Kaleido Ink, allowed it to dry and they added the foil and ran it through the machine, it covered most of it to be fair, to finish the card I blended Peacock Feathers, Stormy Sky & Blueprint Sketch across the card, I wiped over the silver areas with a cloth to remove excess ink and buff up the silver foiling. I matted and layered onto silver card and then onto a white card base. I haven't decided on a sentiment yet.
Now I am thinking of maybe having a 'Fun Fold ' Challenge this week for anyone that wants to have a go a Michele's Tutorial card, let me know in the comments bellow, you can chose other fun fold if you would like to.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all,
