After a bit of a hiccup around lunch it's been a great day here.
I have been doing a bit of cleaning ( no tittering please) as some friends are coming around for a bit of crafty fun and girly chat tomorrow. However, I have been sitting down a doing a little bit of crafting in between the hoovering and dog walking. This card has been in the making since Saturday but for one reason or another didn't get finished until this aft.
I made it with quite a few challenges in mind and was a little bit inspired by a card by fellow teamie at ATSM the lovely Loll.
The layout is inspired by the sketch at Less is More -mirrored
and the colours by the latest challenge at
and finally the background was created by using watercolour washes of DIs in Squeezed Lemonade, Fired Brick and Dried Marigold then over stamped it with a text stamp with Tea Dye. I also used a technique called Bokeh using Versamark Canary on top it sort of intensifies the yellow, so I guess it fits with the challenge at
The panel was then die cut using a recent acquisition my Die-Namics 'Pierced Rectangles'. I added a sprig of leaves using part of a Fresh Foliage die cut in green and added a few berries from my hole punch waste in red. The Hello and tab were from a Marianne set COL 1315.
OK that's a wrap. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
