Tuesday mutterings ....

Morning peeps,

Hope you all had a great weekend and are having a good week, so far. We were out to dinner with friends and visited a Chinese buffet restaurant where we availed ourselves of a wide variety of dishes and probably more food than we should have!!! What is it with buffets that makes you feel you have to eat till your're stuffed?

Had a busy day yesterday too, the weather was gorgeous - sunny but not too hot, seemed a shame not to go out for the the day, Fortunately, before we went out I had the opportunity to start the card below and ... it was able to dry whilst I was out .......

My card
And a close up of the image panel
Back of the card and envelope and the insert and envelope front

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • White card, black card and kraft card, for matting and layering
  • Gesso applied to the small white card panel using a baby wipe
  • Once the gesso was dry Distress Crayons: mustard seed, picked raspberry and spiced marmalade applied and blended with a finger
  • Dylusions and TCW stencils used, with a baby wipe, to knock back colour
  • Dylusions images stamped using Memento lilac posies and rosebud inks
  • Dina Wakely image stamped using Versafine onyx black ink

All you can eat buffets are a dangerous thing! We went to a carvery a few weeks ago and I saw a man who had taken so much that he had to wipe the sweat from his forehead between mouthfuls before forcing some more down. I love the chance to have a little taste of everything though.

I love your card, it's got a kind of naive almost aboriginal art quality to it that I really like.
