I've made a hasty entry for LIM's challenge this week, the theme being
PINK & BROWN
Here's what I knocked up quickly this morning, I'm on nights again tonight so not much time for crafting today.
I used a Crafty Individuals tree stamped with Versafine on a sponged background. The tree was embossed with clear EP and disappointingly this caused the horizon line to show through the tree but I didn't have the time to start again and couldn't think of an idea to disguise it. (How come this never happens to Barbara Grey!!) The sentiment was free with a magazine eons ago and punched out, the stamped panel was mounted on my card blank with dimension tape. IRL the pink shading is much more pronounced than appears here but it's another grey day and my camera did not capture it well.
Thanks for all your comments regarding the felt flower hair clips in my last post, I've made some more and embellished them with some funky brads that lovely Elizabeth sent me. What do you think ?
It's been a quiet sort of week and nothing monumental has happened. I went for a stroll with New Man in the week to 'the caff' (it's legendary round here) for brunch and took these snaps en route. Curtise, prepare to be amazed!! Ta dah!
Finally I have got to grips with PicMonkey, there was a bit of swearing involved...OK more than a bit actually, but I'm never going to be an IT genius so for me creating a collage was an achievement! I know I need to add a background and rounded corners but hey, lets not run before I can walk.
Latest Gatwick Goss...... yesterday was a day for celebs as I saw Max Clifford and Martin Clunes. One Direction were also there apparently but I missed them, much to my 12 yr old niece's chagrin. (Wouldn't have recognised them anyway!)
Must shoot now as nails in dire need of attention (looking tres scabby) and a home manicure is essential. Gardening and clearing out the shed gives one terribly tatty talons you know.
Toodle pip. x
Not sure what's happened to the text spacing today, anyone know how to fix it ?
