Not done much crafting for ages but I have kept up to date with my Xmas card schedule. There are so many jobs to do during the - ahem - summer months that time is precious especially as there are trips away to put in the mix too.
So after the usual shopping trip in the summer rain!!! I set to and made 2 Xmas cards bringing my total to 15 so far.
Distress stain background on the little card over stamped in black archival. I just adore distress colours in all their forms.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the last challenge and entered an ATC and a special congratulations to the winner. Don't forget to claim your banners and prize.
This fortnight's challenge is sponsored by SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS
Sassy is offering 4 digis to the winner
Our Design Team had the choice of 1 of 3 images to work with for our theme - Frame It - I chose Sassy Showgirl:
I re-sized the image to fit the ATC base card and coloured her with Copics. I made a wash of distress ink and forever violet Perfect Pearls spray and roughly painted the background around the image. It may not look like it, but the feathers I used to make the frame are purple and a greeny yellow, they appear to be more blue in the photo. I have to admit to sourcing the feathers to make a frame before I began colouring the image and I used a colour wheel in order to try and use complimentary colours. That was fun.
Please have a go and join us for this challenge. The DT are looking forward to seeing your ATCs.
Another week another woyww another empty desk for me - sorry Julia.
My Internet has been down almost reducing me to tears because I have succumbed to the 'techy' life. Couldn't email or even do any banking - this is really not good. Things have to be better than this. So much for technology eh?
Anyway, I have to give praise and say a massive thanks to our computer guru - Dave - who talked me through the maze of jargon and got my router to behave again.
Nothing to show you inside so here's a bit of the outdoors instead.
Anyone for sunshine, come to the north west.......
Don't buy a wireless printer.
I bought a new one last Sunday and completely wrecked my internet connection. Not only did it knock out my laptop, but it wrecked my mobile phone, hubby's laptop, i-phone and i-pad. What a mess.
Dave the computer whiz to the rescue tonight and all is restored.
