Since the weekend starts here - have a good one, peeps! Got plans?
- ATC blank
- Black card cut to ATC size
- Offcut of DCWV green floral card, off cut of a piece of DCWV foiled border card
- Magnolia mini Tilda image stamped on to white card using Memento tuxedo black
- Alcohol markers to colour
- Recollections "ripped tape" image stamped on to white card using Brilliance orchid ink
- TPC Studio sentiment stamped on top of the orchid image using Versafine onyx black ink, the sentiment panel was then matted on to black card using my Xyron sticker maker
- Faux crustal gemstones used to embellish
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
- One piece of 8" x 8" DCWV metallic gold card
- Black card for matting and white card for my sentiment and image panel
- On the gold metallic panel layer I stamped Kaisercraft "grid" and "chequer" images using Color Box sahara sand ink
- On the white image panel I "plonked" the following Distress Inks: scattered straw, wild honey and tea dye - to give a more geometric background
- Inkadinkado image from the "Meadow" set, I was reminded to use this by crafting buddy, Jan
- I then stamped the border from my new Stampers Anonymous sentiment set using Versafine vintage sepia and the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink
Hope you like it and feel it to be sufficiently different to enter in the above challenge, I think it's a much more sophisticated take on the sketch but, then again, that could just be me! Here's a reminder of the sketch ..
I'm also planning to enter it over at the Stamplorations challenge blog their new challenge is to use "Stamps and a technique" ...... I am loving the truly simple technique of DTP (Direct To Paper) with Distress Ink - I love the geometric effect of the square ink pad.
And I made a Christmas card for the Craftbubble Rudolph Day challenge (registration required) which is to "use embellishments"
- 12½cm square white, 250 gsm card and matching sized envelope
- 12cm square black card panel
- 11½cm square white card panel
- Offcuts of black, white and metallic green card
- Sparkle 'n Sprinkle pine bough image coloured using Marvy le plume markers directly on to the stamp
- Stardust stickles to highlight the pine cone images
- White satin ribbon with sentiment on
- Michaels iridescent snowflake embellishments attached using Glossy Accents
Had a lovely meal out with our neighbours yesterday, Italian. I ordered the Stromboli (and I was expecting it to look rolled) which looked like how I expect a Calzone to look - can anyone help me with the difference between the two?
And now for the Friday Funny - Friday's wouldn't be Friday's without starting with a chuckle now ..... would it. This week comes to you courtesy of Marsha, thanks Marsha, you're in the draw!
clearly, they were still very much in love. While the husband was in the living room, her lady friend leaned over to her hostess to say, 'I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you still call your husband all those loving names.'
The elderly lady leaned close, 'I have to tell you the truth,' she said, 'his name slipped my mind about 10 years ago, and I'm scared to death to ask the cranky old git what his name is.!!!!
Have a great Friday, everyone.
