I’ve had a super weekend, but boy am I exhausted! Mum, Dad and my niece Bethany were over for a visit, and although the weekend was action packed, unfortunately I didn’t get to spend much time the craft room. So instead I’ve pulled out a photo of a card that I made a little while ago but still hadn’t gotten round to showing you yet. This isn’t my usual kinda bright and colourful style, but hey, we all need a break from the norm every now and again!
For this card I went for a more arty-farty kinda look, as I started by inking a page from an old french novel. Next I painted it with gesso to create a light background to stamp on. I purposely painted the gesso roughly, as I wanted a grungy look. Next I stamped a music background onto the paper, along with some flowers using distress ink. The torn edges give a more rustic feel, and I thought the gingham/ plaid paper worked really well as a vintage style background to use for matting and layering. No surprises that the text stamp is from Unity stamps, one of my many Kit of the Months. I just love how versatile these stamp kits are as they push the boundaries of my creative imagination in all sorts of directions.
Thanks for stopping by.
I LOVE party games!! – pass the parcel, pin the tail on the donkey, and of course, musical chairs! And when I saw this chairs stamp in Unity Stamps September KOTM, it instantly reminded me of the local Church hall, lined with chairs whilst the musical notes stopped and started, resulting in an inevitable pile-up of kids, clambering and fighting over the last chair. Ahh, the fun!
And all of this is ahead of me, when little bump comes out! ♥
Speaking of bump…we were so excited to have our 20w scan on Friday!
OH MY GOSH!
It was SOOO very crazy! Seeing the little hands and feet on the screen! Wriggling and turning this way and that way, taking our breath away! We watched the screen with amazement, mouths gaping whilst the sonographer marvelled at how cooperative our little one was being. She even called it ‘baby of the day!’. Oh, such a proud mama already!! I promise I’ll have some pics to share real soon. Anyway, must reel myself in from all this swishy gooey stuff! ♥
