I have to admit that I've been a bit stuck with this week's cue word from CASology! I immediately thought of wild animals and I have some stamps with wild animals, but they're so cute and not really ideal. Then I thought of wild colours - neons, clashing colours, super vibrant - again didn't work for me. Then I remembered my zany lizard stamp - wild animal and wild pattern - YES!! I turned the sketch on its side so that the scalloped border was at the bottom of the card. I like this week's Colour Throwdown challenge and think they're perfect for a wild, zany lizard! I stamped the image in Versafine, heat embossed with clear powder and coloured with SU pens and distress ink. I finished off with a simple sentiment.
One of the things that Kathryn is having to get used to here, is no half-term holiday. At this time in the UK the schools have a week's break to allow the children and staff to recharge. That doesn't happen here!!! Although when I mentioned it to some of Kathryn's teachers, they rather liked the idea!! Kathryn has a couple of short breaks coming up soon; Election Day - November 6th and then Thanksgiving - 22nd and 23rd November.
That's all for now - see you soon.
