As the title on my post suggests, I am still hurting from my failed Broomstick Lesson yesterday but it is not going to keep me down.....not for long anyway. I have some very interesting bruises in places I haven't known have existed for a while and I am already trying to figure out what colours of Distress Inks I could use to match the colours up for future projects. At the moment I am thinking Dusty Concord, Peeled paint, Weathered Wood, Mustard Seed, amongst others, but I am sure these colours will change as the days go on. My left arm and shoulder hurt like crazy and we don't talk about the a**** (that is 5 letters not 4!) or else it will start to hurt again too. So armed with ibruprofen and arnica I am carrying on regardless!
So for those of you who called by yesterday and saw my desk you will possibly remember I had the makings of some C cards on my desk. Well here they are made up....
I did a twofor! I stamped both Inkadinkado stamps with Archival ink and then turning to page 50 of T!m Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities II, as I was instructed to by Linda of Studio L3, I coloured in some parts using Distress Markers (building up my collection slowly but surely now)
Once they were dry I inked around the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used my Rock Candy Distress Stickles for the Santa picture and Scattered Straw for the other. I just love how they add a subtle glimmer to your pictures and makes them look oldey worldy. Once all that was done I then turned them into some C cards to be sent in the not too distant future now!!
Before I leave you I want to Thank Tracy of Cuddly Bunny (go check out her blog as she does some awesome projects and some hilarious posts) for sending me a lickle parcel which my neighbour brought up last night.
We "met" when I saw her awesome little Domino book for another of Linda's Challenges and she kindly offered to send some dominos to me as I only seem to get black here in the UK. I was absolutely chuffed to bits to receive these last night, especially after the day I had yesterday. The tag is soo rich and gorgeous too and another for my wall. I shall hopefully make something that you will be pleased to see soon. Thank You sooo much Tracy!
Off to track some more ibrupropen (or however they are spelt!).
