Snippet busting mixed media style ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. We’re nearly at the weekend again; I really don’t get how these weeks flash by so quickly lol!
Whilst I’m here and I remember I want to say welcome to my two lovely new followers Diane and Jo. I really hope you’ll like/love what I create when I’m playing with card, ink, paints, stamp and anything else I might want to use lol! If you ever have questions leave me a comment and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can, if you’re easily contactable through Blogger or Google Plus. If you don’t have an account at either it means I won’t be able to contact you. So if you have a question make sure you let me know where I can get back in touch with you.
I have a snippets card to share with you today and here it is …
Another little A6 one - I love this one!
Still my favourite butterfly stamp and I have a lot of butterfly stamps too!
Flowers created with lots of snippets!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Tando Creative Challenge Colour pallette
This card was created using snippets from the other cards I’ve shared this week along with other paper snippets that are in my box. I stamped the butterfly and coloured her with my lovely Spectrum Noir Aquatints. I used the inks without diluting them this time and I love how bold and bright the colours are.
I've enjoyed my week of making cards but I hope to take a break from card making for a week lol! I'm behind with my MM arch tutorials from Ink Stain Roni, I've not done many experiments recently and I need to sit down and play just for me: for my journal. So that is the plan for Sunday.
Tomorrow and Saturday will be busy with a quick tidy and dust before Luke (younger brother), Bethan and mum come for dinner on Saturday evening. I'm so looking forward to that. Two weeks have passed since the last time brother and Bethan visited and although it’s gone quickly I have missed them. Part of that is because I know that Luke & Bethan aren’t only fifteen minutes away anymore and for some odd reason I’ve found that really hard to cope with – hopefully it will improve with time.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen xx
