Good morning one and all. Hope you're not suffering too much with all of this wet weather. . . . . . Flaming June as they say.
I'm going to be trying to do something in my craft room today. I have 2 cards to make by Friday (an 50th and an 18th for mother and daughter) but my get up and go, got up and went so I need to give myself a shake rather than endure the indignity of.........I can't bear to say it............forgive me for using this sort of language............buying cards from a shop.............arrrgh, wash my mouth out!!!!!!!!
Fortunately, the presents were covered as I made some jewellery a few weeks ago. Eeeeee, the shame if I have to buy the cards!!!!!!!
Now, back to John's samples. This was one of the first that I made as I had something in mind the minute I saw the swirly leafy stamps.
Rich Plum card (both CE foundation card)
John Lockwood Nasturtium Elements stamps (flowers, leaves and swirly bits)
John Lockwood Peony Elements stamp (sentiment)
Cosmic Shimmer Frosted Lemon mica powder
Sweet Plum Memento Dewdrop ink (also used to colour the ribbon)
CE thin white ribbon (coloured as per above)
CE jelly tot dazzler
Apologies for the above photo. There was some water reflecting outside the window and I didn't realise it had added this stripy effect to the photo until I downloaded it from the camera, by which time the samples were in John's hot little hands. At least you can pick up the sheen from the mica.
It was fun trying to get that thin ribbon to behave as I tried to make it look like it was flowing with the swirly bits. Thank heavens for glue guns!!!
On that note, I shall scoot for now. Mr D has the day off today so I shall try and persuade him to take me out for lunch as I'm going a bit stir crazy. As I'm trying to eat a bit healthier, especially as I'm not getting exercise at the minute, I have been indulging in the delights of cauliflower couscous/rice (really nice, even if you don't like cauliflower) but wouldn't mind a juicy burger lol!!!
Have a great day.
