Well, I don't know what happened to this huge storm we were supposed to have. It totally missed us here in NE Scotland. Now all we have is the rain left, and that is set for the day. Looks like the garden will have to wait - again! LOL
I popped by today to show this card I made for my Daughter's thirteenth birthday. Heck, where did those years go to?? Now, she happens to be a bit of a 'mini-me', in that she is into Goth stuff, but I didn't want to go too overboard with it, and wanted to be a bit girly, and this is the result:
Last week I went into the local craft shop and picked up the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die for the sizzix/big shot, and I had a play with that. The flowers here are what I made with it using black card and some gorgeous burgundy leather effect paper which was nice and thick. Had that for years and never used it, so this was the perfect opportunity.
I used a bit of black ink to smudge across the burgundy shapes, and I smudged gold metallic rub on over too, and also the black card. Then I curled the shapes with my bone folder and fastened the shapes with a black brad that was also smudged with gold rub-on.
The text was typed directly onto the backing dp from Crafty Chaos Designs before printing. I then smudged black ink round the dp after it was mounted onto the base card. I cut a butterfly from black card, twice, using my shapeabilities die, which I also smudged with gold rub on to tie in with the rest of the card. Last job was a bit of bling in the shape of some large black gems.
I think she liked it! LOL.
OK, need to go and do the online Tesco shop now (dull), then I think I may just try and find my excercise dvd and have a go at that. That's if I can get shot of this hot flush. . . Catch ya later folks!!
