Yesterday, I DEFINITELY got the better deal as I was out shopping and lunching with my friend and neighbour, Sally, whilst my hubby was home with a six man workforce who have been replacing the roof! It was no doubt, hot, dusty and NOISY and I was out shopping and enjoying a catch up AND lunch! See what I mean? I got well footsore (my plantar fasciitis was giving me gyp by the time I got home!) and what did I buy? Besides my lunch? NOTHING! It was a close run thing though as I did find some smashing bags to revisit - see them here
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
- I stamped the Dylusions mini couture image three times, using Versafine onyx black ink. Once directly on to the card blank, once on to a DCWV offcut of a piece from the "Olde World" stack and once on a piece of orange-y tan card (which I've for YEARS and came from a ½lb of cardstock from Walmart). I then cut out the skirt from the DCWV image and the top from the Walmart cardstock and adhered to my stamped card blank image using Aleene's tacky glue.
- Pitt Pen "S" thickness, to colour the belt black
- Faux crystal gemstone to accent the belt
- Hampton Arts sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black and then the large text traced using stardust stickles
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- 14cm square white card panel with a border colour using a copic marker
- 13½cm square white card panel
- Dylusions mini couture images stamped using Versafine onyx black ink. I also stamped the female image on a piece of scrap paper cut out and used as a mask prior to stamping the masculine image
- Alcohol markers used to colour images
- Stampers Anonymous sentiment and frame stamped on to white card and cut out before colouring with an alcohol marker
- Stardust stickles used to highlight the "belt"
And here's how the inside of the card and the envelope turned out ....
And now, the Friday Funny which (this week) comes to you courtesy of my trading card buddy, PatG - so, I really DID get it off Pat!! Thanks Pat, hope you'll enjoy it ...
