So out came the craft stuff, choice of two challenges to enter, think the piece I'm working on would do for both. Out came the slice and I cut out some shapes, thought that this shape would make a nice flower, once it had been inked up, crackled etc!
Still felt that it was lacking something, another layer? Problem with that was the slice wouldn't cut this design below 2 inches... rats, so rooted through design cards for another suitable flower that could be reduced in size.
So finally found one that I liked and would match up with this, and that could be cut smaller
I have got a plan, sort of! I have all the bits and bobs I need, and Cuttlebug is on its way to me, hoping it will be here by Wednesday, think for it to arrive tomorrow would be asking too much?
So time to sort out the backing card, wanted to use the distress inks, inking round the edges, but think I've lost my touch with that technique. Made a right mess of first effort, then had a brain wave - the brayer! Why hadn't I thought of it before?
My brother stuck his head round my door and asked what I was doing, I said crafting, I'm sure he expected to see me making some pretty cards... and not this! By now I had very inky fingers, even the craft mat was in need of a clean, so a quick tidy up, and a cup of tea, rather a large mug of tea.
So now taking a break from it, also the light has gone, I don't like crafting by lamplight, and can't afford one of those fancy lamps. I'll be back at it tomorrow, with more pics.
Thanks for stopping by, much appreciated.
