Sadly my Mum passed away 14 years ago and even though she married an Englishman and lived in England for most of her life she was a Scot through and through. Two of my brothers were born in Scotland and I can remember many nostalgic summer holidays on the banks of Loch Lomond with my Granddad and cousins. If Mum were alive today I definitely know which way she would have voted in the Scottish referendum!!!!
This is my Mum with two of my brothers,Robert and David. Mum was extremely beautiful and had the most luxurious thick curly hair. My granddaughter Amber has inherited her Great Grandmothers pretty looks and also her thick curly hair.
Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of “Trees In Autumn Colours”.
The background of trees is from Stampin Up called – Lovely As A Tree and the adorable young lady reading is from Flonzcrafts here. Coloured her with copics and used black and white gesso for the hair. She is also sitting on a bed of distress powders. Stamped the leaves from the SU French Foliage and cut out before sprinkling with the effect powders. Used G45 papers for the background.
Entering For: Compendium Of Curiosities 3, Challenge II – Effect Powders Technique which can be found on Page 52 of his book. You can also see all the details of how to enter. Sponsors for the challenge are: Inspiration Emporium. Better get my skates on as I have to hop on over to leave each of the Curiosity Crew a bit of love for all their inspirational work.
Not sure if my entry will count as I am ashamed to say that I bought my Distress Powders quite a few years ago and the ones I used on this card had never even been opened. I did check and he still has these colours which I used. Frayed Burlap, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Scattered Straw and Aged Mahogany.
I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning. Also don’t forget that the winner of the FSC challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
