- Mojo Monday - MOJO225 - sketch
- Colour Q - cQc121 - lovely warm colours
- Flutter by Wednesdays - FBW187 - challenge to use any kind of embossing, plus an angel, fairy or butterfly
I turned the Mojo Monday around to make a portrait style card. I cut out the little mats in plain white card and then stamped the flowers - first I stamped in the colour ink and then in Versamark, both have been heat embossed with clear powder. I sponged colour over the Versamark images to bring out white flowers. I stamped the sentiment on to the centre panel and added leaf images in Versamark mark, heat embossed with clear powder and then sponged on some green ink. To finish off I've added a tiny vellum butterfly - on its way to visit those lovely flowers.
Stamps: Dawn Bibby - Flower Patch
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, More Mustard; Versamark
Accessories: Clear embossing powder, vellum and kraft card from stash
I've had fun trying to get a decent photo of the card - I'm so looking forward to the long, light evenings of Spring and Summer. The photo above was taken without flash and I think really shows the warm tones of these lovely colours, however, it's not quite sharp!! So I used my flash - see right - it's sharper, but has washed out the colours a bit. But you can really see the shine from the embossing! Swings and roundabouts I think!!
I've had a busy couple of days - I did get all my ironing finished - and for a whole 24 hours, my washing baskets were stacked and empty!! Sadly, the bit of washing I've done today means more ironing. I have started to do the ironing while watching programmes that I've recorded - it does make it go a bit quicker.
That's all for now - I'm going to nip downstairs and catch up on some episodes of Criminal Minds that I recorded earlier today and have a nice cup of coffee! See you tomorrow.
