Hope you are all well and ready for a crafty weekend?? Mine will be spent sorting through more stuff. Still no confirmed date for the builder to start work. He was supposed to let us know by the end of this week, great way to start huh?? Anyway, hopefully I will be able to get some more rubbah in the For Sale page at the top later today - as long as Dno1 doesn't nab the compy!!
I actually managed to make a card a day or so ago, so I though I had better blog it!! I decided to do a relatively clean and simple design, as I wanted the image to be the main focal point. I have used my Seahorses image from the Delicious Doodles Shop for this card, coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, scanned and printed twice for the layering.
This image is also available from Sweet Pea Stamps for you ladies who love rubber!! (YEAY!)
I used my fav frameabilities die cut in blue bazzill, layered onto pearlescent green. I the layered that onto a yellow that I smudged with orange and red ink, and placed that onto the backing dp which is a fabric effect paper from Just So Scrappy - By The Sea kit.
I smudged aqua and green ink round the image, layered that onto gold mirri and place it on the frame. I finished up with some stickles on the bubbles, round the edge of the gold mirri, and put some large pearls in the corners. Finished!!
Mind you, it took me four months to get round to colouring this image up - I released it in March!! Where does the time go??!!! LOL
Righty then, must go and get dressed (sat here in me jammies) ready for the kids, as they want to visit the craft fair in the playing field today. It's the Speyfest Weekend with all the pounding music until 1am (sigh). Wish they'd move it away from the houses and into a farmers field. It made something in my bedroom rattle last night with the flaming drums. Don't get me wrong, I love a bit of fiddle music, but they have the drums turned up WAY too loud, and that's all you can hear. . .
Enough moaning! Off to find some challenges to enter, catch ya later folks!!
