I wish we could have a few more crisp wintry days, all this grey dank weather is rather depressing.
As I mentioned before, the lane down to our house is being used by contractors building an access way for Railtrack to repair the embankment on the railway. The heavy wagons bringing hardcore for the access road are churning up the sides of the lane and all this rain is washing it down onto the lane itself, this accumulates until the next heavy truck squelches through cutting further into the soft ground. I hope they will be doing something about it soon or someone will slide off!
Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Galz. This time it is the theme of
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Here is my card, which some of you may recognize as appearing in the February edition of Craft Stamper. I have to say that although the mag took their own photo for the edition, I think mine is better as the raised Love shows up more!
Again I've used the Altenew Painted Flowers for this camouflage technique card.
Using the colours (Purple, soft pink,cream and mink) for the Ready Set Stamp February Art Call,
I stamped a bouquet of flower outlines on a die cut panel of cream linen card in Seedless Preserve DI then filled in the centres with 2nd generation Picked Raspberry and Pumice Stone. I laid the Avery Elle 'Love' die over the middle and cut, having previously cut one from a piece of Funky Foam.
The stamped panel, minus LOVE was glued flat onto the base card and the foam LOVE glued into the space left by the die cut. The flowery die cut was then glued over the foam one. YOU from a STAMPlorations set, Bold Blooms, was stamped in Seedless Preserve to complete.
