Hello My Lovely Friends
I do hope you are all coping with this terrible weather we are having right now! I drove down to Cardiff today with my friend (needed to do a reccy on my new place of work - did I tell you I have a new job?, and we popped to Ikea too!!) and the car did have a few scary moments when the wind buffeted it. In the days when the old rear engined Skodas were the car of choice in our family, my MIL used to carry a bag of coal in the boot on days like this. I wished I had one in my boot today!!
Anyway, enough chat, I know you wanna see what I have been up to recently!! This card wasn't done too recently, but it is one I have not shared before. Hope you like it...
I used my lully Penny Black poppy stamp, inked with Ranger Archival ink and then coloured in using my watercolour pencils. Then using my TH text stamp, I made a mask of the poppy and then stamped using DI and inked around the image before mounting it onto some red card.
This was then layered onto some left over hessian (or burlap to my US friends), then some Papermania pp and some more red card before putting it onto the kraft card.
Some buttons along the top and ribbon and hey presto a card was born.
The hessian and red card were from the vast Snippets collection so I am running with my lead boots over to the Snippets Playground ready to take part in the cookery lesson and subsequent pancake race tomorrow!! There is talk of chocolate spread, but I am an old fashioned gal who likes the lemon juice, currants and sprinkled sugar with cinnamon. Who is with me?
Thanks for calling by.
