In the meantime I've made a card which has been inspired by my recent trip to Mumbai. One of the things that we constantly saw while we walked around the city, were stalls selling flowers - marigolds to be precise. These were made to be placed on shrines and as good luck symbols on shops and homes.
|One of the many stalls selling marigold garlands - so beautiful!!|
Stamps: Elusive Image - Flower Stamp
Inks: Versamark; Distress - Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw
Accessories: Card from stash; Handmade paper from Mumbai; Greeting from Craftwork Cards
These colours are almost exactly the colours for last week's Colour Q challenge - but sadly I've missed the deadline for that challenge.
Craft class today was lots of fun - I spent most of the morning chatting and catching up on all the gossip!! Actually, I didn't to much crafting!! But I did get to see what the rest of the girls have been up to - and they made some fantastic cards. Barbara, brought all her birthday cards into the group to share them with us - we made some stunning cards!! Betty has completed her cross-stitch picture of Menai Bridge which joins North Wales to Anglesey - it's absolutely superb. And it reminds me that I started a cross-stitch picture of a dragon on a castle about four years ago, and it's in the bottom of my sewing basket. I think I need to finish it!!
We had a lot more rain today and now that my garden is looking really green and lush, I'd like it to stop!! I did managed to get some washing dry between down pours!! I want the sun to come out again.
That's all for today. But do pop back tomorrow as I have my LIM card to share with you. See you soon.
