Guess(o) What I've Been Doing!!!

Hooooey......that title is bad even for!!!

This is the card that got left at the shop yesterday.
The background is gesso applied with cling film to a piece of mountboard and then inked over with Adirondack inks in Lettuce and Stream.
When they had dried I gently wiped over the piece with a baby wipe to remove the ink from the gesso.
Floral image (Artemio) was stamped in StazOn Olive Green.
The butterfly (Creative Expressions) was stamped onto mountboard and coloured with the Lettuce and Stream and then embossed with UTEE.
Once the UTEE was cool I sprayed a little Cosmic Shimmer-Silver over the piece and reheated it before adding another layer of UTEE.

Well after having got two cards done yesterday today was a complete contrast and I didn't have time to make any as it was quite busy in the shop. Luckily I was there early this morning and got the prep done for the class tomorrow, tidied up and swept the floor. I always like to get it done just in case we have any travel hold ups in the morning.

Have just woken up after falling asleep in the bath. I hate doing that as I feel so yucky when I wake up. So now I am going to snuggle up on the sofa and chill out for a while.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Lovely card Sheila, such a pretty combo of ink colours. There's something about an ink being called 'lettuce'!! It's just lovely!
