I do hope things are fine with you all today. I am feeling sooo much better than a couple of days ago, thank you all for your good wishes and kind words. I am putting the whole episode down to the IBS that I have the displeasure of knowing. I blame my parents, they both have it now, although only recently discovered they have it. Just like parents to pass on these things as well as their genes eh?? LOL
So, my card today is a bit later than I would have liked, as I had a 'Needs Assessment Meeting' this morning. Myself and a few others are currently forming an Allotment Society where we live, and muggins here was elected Secretary - ugh! Don't know a thing about that line of work, so it's interesting to say the least! Another meeting tonight - this time for the Committee. Constitutions to draw and sign, technical blurb etc, etc. Who would have though you would need all that s**t just to dig!! - whatever!
On to better things then, (I hope) my card today was made following the layout at Midnight Madness. Bit different there today, as they have thrown in a simpler version of the same sketch for those who do simple, and they also have a sneak peak of the new sketch on a Friday now too. This is the one that is not simplified:
I am entering this into A Spoon Full Of Sugar, as they want to see loads of 'Layering'. It is also going into The Get Funky Challenge, which this month is to include 'Spots and Stripes'.
I was lucky enough to be their winner last month - yeay me! And with the winnings I bought their new disc 'Dreams Come True'. Some gorgeous backing papers, and some new digi-images too, and editable word books!! How cool is that then?
So I have used some of those new papers here on this card. The image is my own Geisha Girl, available for purchase in my blog shop Delicious Doodles. I coloured this one by scanning in some japanese paper, and dropping it behind the image for the dress. I did the same thing for the fan by scanning in a small design from somewhere.
Then I had to delete all the bits round the outside of the image before dropping in the head and hands. Lots of fiddly stuff there, but worth it in the end! I then printed out a few times and layered with the usual foam pads. Just to finish it off, I put a fan in the corner, which also complies with the sketch. The strip at the bottom is in fact paper not ribbon, taken from the same piece as behind the image.
Right then. Might try a cup of coffee now then. Tummy still isn't back to 100 per cent normality, but it's getting there!!
