What a beautiful day, here in North West England – I hope the sun has shone on you, wherever you are. Nature’s awakening and there’s a lovely, gentle calm over everything – I love this time of year!
To make it all better, I found my little Samsung camera, so I’m a happy bunny. It was a poor second best to my SLR but since I’ve well and truly lost that, I’m happy just to have a camera! Watch out, Izzi – Grandma’s about!
I actually made this last week, using two of my all time favourite inks – Memories Hunter Green and Soft Leaf - but wasn’t completely happy with it, so put it to the side until I made my mind up what to do with it. Today, I decided I liked it, but I wanted it to go on cream, then I fancied embossed corners and a pretty ribbon... that’s how this card happened.
I played with the background on this one and really enjoyed it. Maybe my inspiration is creeping back a little… almost afraid to say it! Still couldn’t face stamping an image or cutting out, so I used one from my basket – same with the words. Still, that’s why I have baskets of images – to inspire me! I think the little girl’s from Lost Coast and the words are from Stamp Camp. Not sure you can see the faces in the background…
Love the inkiness and I even used Walnut ink on this, too, which is very unusual for me these days.
I’ve had the 7 Gypsies tissue paper (music) for years and years (probably around 10 years…?) but haven’t used much, saving it for ‘something special’. Today, I just decided to tear it up… hey ho!
Have a great week and may the sun shine on you all! Hope to get to visit more of you this week.
