You Get Better With Age

Hello Crafters

How has your week been so far? Here we have been enjoying the company of family, our first visitors in our new home since the building works were finished and time has been flying, so much so I missed my regular post yesterday, but I hope you can forgive me as we had a lot of catching up to do 🙂

I did manage to make a card this week and it was something that has been spinning around my head, which was experimenting with stencils and distress inks. The result was this:

Item Used:

As you can tell I love bright colours, and I have been doing some colouring classes and wanted to bring some colours together to make you feel good and smile, whilst using multiple stencils to create a background image. I used the texture stamps to add a bit of pzazz to the corners. To make the colour pop, I used a black fine liner round the shapes. Think it came together quite well.

Hope you have a great week.

Hello Crafters

How are you all? I do hope that you were kept safe in the storm, and that awful yellow sky that developed, apparently it was a sand storm from the Sahara Desert caught up in the hurricane! All I know is that it left an awful lot of dust all over everything, and Mr Kim had just cleaned the car too!

Just a quick pop in to share a card I made a little while ago and mysteriously took an awful long time to reach it’s destination – Gibraltar. Normally 5 to 7 days, but took 3 weeks! Think it had a little holiday all of it’s own!! At least it did make it’s destination and not go off to that big ol’ post box in the sky.

This was a card for a colleague, and a chance to test out the new embossing folder, and I must say, it really did turn out nice. I used the Encore Metallic Pink Ink and layered it on and then ran it though the machine, and it came out with this beautiful lace effect.

Items Used:

Well must get on, nearly time for bed and little lad could do with a little playtime.

Have a lovely week.
