Good Morning Ladies,
Thank you for your lovely comments on yesterday's card. I have had a fun couple of days crafting this week, my craft room is a disaster but that's nothing new!!
It sounds like some of you had busy days this week, travel planning and Grandparent duties etc. Karen I bet you were glad when it was bedtime! Janet there is no better feeling than getting things ticked off of your 'To Do' List. I have tried a few times this week to get an earlier appointment for my Blood Test, it hasn't been successful, so I Friday at 3.30pm it is, the bit that puzzles me is that on previous occasions I have been told that they don't usually take any kind of samples on Friday afternoon as they won't get sent out over the weekend, maybe thats ok with blood tests. I just want to know that I'll be ok to go on holiday.
Today's card is from my craft session yesterday, it is one of FOUR cards that I managed to finish, I was going for five but Becca came over and wanted help finishing and printing off some Tickets to an 80' Disco she has organised to raise money for her Skydive, that's right I did say Skydive!!! My most accident prone daughter is going to jump out of an Airplane! She wanted Neon Tickets, luckily I had a few of the Lidl Card packs and they worked great after I cut them down to A4 to fit through printer. She went happy which is the main thing.
So for this card I stamped the Passion Flowers onto Pink Frog card, I cut masks for the flowers and added the leaves behind the flowers, I added White Embossing powder and heat set, I then spritzed over the embossed areas and added some Shimmery Watercolour paints, I bought then for half price a couple weeks ago, I just added some purple to the flowers and green around the leaves, I spritzed a bit more water over the painted areas to get the paint moving a bit more. While that area was drying I added some splatters if the same colour around the rest of the card. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment in matching ink mounted onto a matching mat then onto a C6 card base, I then added a few iridescent sparkles. The shimmer fron these paints is incredible, I was realit impressed, I tried to capture the shimmer in that second photo.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
