Hi all, I hope you are having a great weekend! Now I am not spending quite so much time in the bathroom, I have been able to resume my life with a little more normality!
Those of you who popped by my blog last Sunday may remember that I renamed my Sunday as Funday, because that is what I decided my Sundays should be. I just have fun, doing whatever I feel like doing, rather than what I should be doing!
So, today, I used up some more 'bits and bobs' that have been lying around and played with a couple more unused stamp sets - that's something else I am trying to do, use some more of my NBUS pile - thanks you for the acronym Darnell!
The sets used were, WPlus9 'Watercolored Anenomes' and CC Designs 'Scripted Sentiments'.
My first card here used a strip of patterned paper that I have had for years and a card base that I had embossed with embossing paste through a stencil, decided it wasn't what I wanted for a project I was working on and abandoned! Here is that card.
Nothing much to shout about, but it used up some of my crafting debris!
The next card uses those NBUS stamp sets I mentioned earlier. I hadn't used the first of these sets before, because it intimidated me! It's one of those fabulous layering sets that give real depth to the finished image. I adore these sets and have a number of them - I can never resist, even though they scare me - I take one look at the 'shadow' layers and 'mid tone' layers which, to my eye, never looks like anything, put the set to one side, thinking, one day, and then . . . forget them!
I was right to be scared! The layering just didn't work for me, but as they are such a loose design, didn't really matter that much anyway, and, at least, I used them, which was the aim!
Here it is.
This is a OLC. First I took a smooth, white card base and stamped the flowers and leaves in both corners. Then I stamped the bold sentiment in black and then mixed up a little pink paint, with some white and red paints so that it coordinated with the pink stamping and flicked it over the finished design. Then, of course, I finished it all off with a few of my home made dew drops that you all know about!
I hope you are all having some fun too! Now I'm off to do some more lettering practice!
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
