Back at home it was time for messing about, making backgrounds. I must confess half got this idea from CnC when the demonstrator was using a bubble wrap stamp, why buy one when you can just use bubble wrap? I cut some off a roll, then dabbed the distress inks on, then just placed it on the card, a gentle rub and it twas done.
Added more ink round the edges. And it was time to start building the frame.
So out came the decoupage, it is the pop out variety, though I don't mind doing cutting out, in fact I rather enjoy it but most decoupage these days is the pop out stuff. Pity as it was a good way to hone your cutting skills.
I then built up the decoupage using pin flair, and then some glossy accents, and left it to dry.
So a sunny day, nice crafting, but no medals! I'm getting used to us winning something most days, but we've got the hocky teams, men and women playing in the semis, a female boxer also in a semi, the BMX has started, and more athletics.
Forecast is for more sun, right till the weekend... can we hope that it will last till October?
Thanks to all for leaving lovely comments, they do keep the mojo fired up :-))
