Good Morning All and a very happy 1st June. Let's hope the weather realises that it's nearly summer and starts to warm up!
I've been playing with my Spellbinder Dies for the last couple of days. I seem to have "runs" on using things, one day it's the Melt Pot then another it's Acrylic Paint and so on. Are you the same?
Anyway, here's one of the cards that I came up with.
First of all, I made the coloured paper by smooshing around a couple of colours of Distress Paints which I spritzed with water then dried. I've overstamped it with Sam Poole's Honeycomb A6 background stamp using Black Archival Ink.
The flowers have been cut using the Carnation Spellbinder Dies and the other die used is the Lattice.
The white background has been embossed (can't remember which embossing folder...doh!). The message is a stamp from Creative Expressions which has been edged with a black Copic pen, then matted and layered onto a piece of the patterned paper.
It's such a pretty and easy card to make and I can still get messy and inky!
We're off to a family BBQ today so here's hoping that "The Sun has got his Hat On!"
I do hope you've been popping over to Sam's Creative Studio's blog. The DT members have been coming up with some gorgeous purple tree creations this week. Give a few people the same stamp and it's fascinating to see all the different ways it's used, that's the great thing about stamping!
Today's travel photo! I thought I'd take you back to Brazil!
One of the children in the village we visited thought we'd like to see her "pet". Yes, it's real!! No, I don't think I want one...I'll stick to cats and dogs if it's all the same!!
On that happy note, I'll say goodbye and thank you for visiting and leaving your wonderful comments. Until next time, have a happy and crafty day.
