..... I meant to post this card before I went out this morning, but better late than never!!! This week's One Layer Wednesday - OLW93 is being hosted by Heather of bits & pieces. Heather is sending us to our kitchens to find inspiration for our cards. For me this was easy! On top of the cupboards in my kitchen is a lot of "stuff" - it was all here before we moved in and I've been meaning to move it.
However, I'm glad I've not moved it yet - I've got the perfect inspiration for my card! I rather like the cockerel and it gives me the opportunity to use my Waltzingmouse cockerel.
This is an ultra clean and simple card - it's also quite small, being a 4" x 4" card. I simply stamped the cockerel in black, masked him off and the placed a stencil over the top. I sponged through the stencil with my distress inks. I finished off with a bright and breezy sentiment. The cockerel is calling in the dawn!
Stamps: Waltingsmouse - French Country
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed
Spellbinders: 2011 Snowflake Pendant (S5-054)
Accessories: Card from stash
I was told that summers in Michigan could be hot - and they weren't kidding!!! Yesterday was stifling - it was 35C and very, very humid and today is almost as hot at 33C but a lot less humid which makes a big difference. I had promised not to use the air conditioning before we came here, but I am so, so grateful we have it. Coming into the house this afternoon was bliss - a blast cool, fresh air - lovely! I'd like it just a tiny bit cooler - the high 20C would be fab!
That's all for now - I'll be back again tomorrow. Take care.
