Good morning Duckies. Hope you are all ticketyboo. I am feeling heaps better so thanks for all of your good wishes. My voice is still a bit Aled Jones (pre-puberty) but its getting there.
As you can see, its back to the sunglasses.
Now, I made a few purchases at The Great British Craft Festival on Saturday, fortified with throat lozenges and a Kit Kat (its a balanced diet as I had one in each hand LOL!!!) Here are the goodies on my desk . . . . . . . . . . .
You may notice the Apple Blossom Radiant Rain Spray. I wanted to have a go at the shaving foam again as I had tried with paler colours (I know, whoda thought it hahaha) but wasn't happy.
See Sue Wilson's tutorial on her blog if you are not familiar with the technique.
I used the Apple Blossom and swirled it with a pencil (I'm sure there is a special tool to do it that costs £20 but a pencil did the job) and this was the piece of card I ended up with . . . . . .
I trimmed it to fit as a mat on a 5x7 white card blank. I wanted to keep as much of the background showing as possible as I liked the pattern, so I simply stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, added some pink organza ribbon and a blinged up turquoise SB Les Papillon.
I know that its bold and bright but its what I needed after feeling that my nose was going to explode and my throat was like the bottom of a bird cage.
Hope I haven't frightened you all off LOL!!! Have a wonderful day.
