Andrew and I are like two ships that pass in the night at the moment. As he is winging his way back from Tennessee in America, I will be winging my way to Ally Pally in the UK. Guess we all know who has got the better deal!!!
Dot and I skyped again yesterday and we both concentrated on making backgrounds. Both used Dylusions sprays (the one I used is called Vibrant Turquoise). Dot made three backgrounds but miss neat freak here only managed to get one background finished.
Ahhhh but at least I added lots of stamped ephemera to my background, Dot put hers away ready to add embellishments at a later date. I also had to wait for the crackle paste to dry!!!!
I love the stamped bulldog clip on this card it looks so real. It comes as part of a stamping set from Anna Griffin and has loads of stationery paraphernalia on it. The girl is a very old freebie stamp from The Craft Stamper magazine and the butterfly is also an old postcard stamp (think it’s Crafty Individuals!!!).
Coloured both with my Faber Castell pencils plus I slit around the wing of the butterfly to pop the note paper behind. The note sheet comes from Stampers Anonymous called School Desk.
We had one more skyping session this morning and I will show you what I made later.
P.S. My granddaughter Lauren Rose would love it if you checked out this video link and subscribed to it.
