I thought while I had this stamp out I would do several different cards with it as I really enjoyed playing with it last night. So tonight I have gone for a slightly more chic look using black and white with a touch of colour which is one of my most favourite looks.
The circle was precut on the Sizzix and then I inked up the stamp and just put the circle over the part I wanted rather than trying to position that huge beast of a stamp in the right place over the circle.
Colouring is done again with Crayons and Gamsol.......a technique I love as it makes me feel like I am good at colouring when that is far from the truth.
The spotty paper was a bargain from The Works. It is actually gift wrap and was 75p for a pack of two sheets and two tags but was also buy two get one free. So for £1.50 I got six huge sheets......gotta love a bargain like that.
Went a bit mad with the brads as embellishments but I am very happy with how it turned out.
Well the snow didn't last long. We had a good covering although it didn't settle on the roads. By the time I went to work this morning it was melting very quickly sadly. There were a few more flurries during the day but nothing to get excited about.
I spent most of the day with a raging headache. I didn't go to bed until about 3am and then was rudely woken by somebody's 'little darlings' having a snowball fight outside my window at 6.30am. Couldn't get back to sleep as they were screaming at full lung capacity. I wouldn't mind but they don't even live on our road.
Got a couple of jobs to do and then I am going to snuggle up with my new book I picked up at the charity shop the other day. It's called Just Between Us and is by Cathy Kelly. A really good read so far.
Night night and thanks for dropping by.
