Would someone please explain why your nearest and dearest think that it's a good idea to ask you to make a card and then say they need it in an hour!
I had my morning planned for yesterday. Make OH a Father's Day card and finish a DT piece I was working on. But no, youngest daughter suddenly realised that she and her partner hadn't got a card for partners dad and could I just "knock" one up. Oh, and it has to have a shed on it!!
Anyway, rising to the challenge like any determined crafter, this is what I came up with.
I found a picture of a shed on Google Images that was copyright free then went to my good old Serif programme!
I chose a background and a frame, then dropped the photo into the frame. The letters are also printed using Serif as are the birds. Just to give it a hand made look, I stamped the flower and leaves then coloured them in with Copic pens. The stamps are from the Artistic Stamper. The flower has been mounted onto the card with 3d foam pads. Not too bad given the time frame and that it had to have a shed on it!
I'm still playing with my journaling and having a ball getting very inky and finding odd things to stick in it! Here's my latest page!
I've used a mopping up technique to create the background. Basically, you just clean whatever you've been using on a previous page onto a new one and see what you get! Definitely my type of crafting...you don't waste anything!!
Now for todays travel photo.
I thought I'd take you the market in Belem, Brazil today and to the fish stall. The guy at the back had actually fallen asleep and looked so peaceful amongst all of the fish. I suppose you could say he was sleeping with the fishes (to give it a Mafia turn of phrase!!)
Well, that's all for today. We're being taken out to lunch for a Father's Day treat. Great being a Mum as I get to go too!!
Until next time, have a happy, crafty time and may thanks for visiting.
