Blue sky and sun

Hooray - some blue sky!   At long last some relief from the rain, we even enjoyed some sunshine this morning.   The birds were certainly making the most of the dry spell,  tho I think they must be feasting on snails as there are an awful lot of broken snail shells.

I had a play on Craft Artist today,  I'd written a short poem at the weekend and wanted to 'scrap' it.   This is it, a mix of digi kits,  just seemed to come together.   I had been tempted to get the new version from CnC,  but I'm content with what I've got for now.   I also made a couple of scrap pages of the weekend, the Halloween digi kits came in very handy!   I got a few more of the freebies as well,   there is never such a thing as having too much is there?    My swap card made it to its destination, have to say I'm impressed given the awful weather that it got there the next day,  well done Royal Mail.

So today I challenged myself to use the two new pieces of stash I'd bought, which are the kaiser clock background stamp, and the silhouette dies. I used an A5 piece of card,  and applied some of the copper and gold radiant rain,  then with the stamp I made a border.   I chose 4 of the die cuts, the mirror frame, and 3 of the ladees!   I embossed the frame, and the 'mirror' bit.  I mounted the piece onto some cream card but felt I needed a bit more, so using some DST I added the gilding flakes,  well I was watching CnC, the Indigo Blu slot and the lady was also using gilding flakes!   So that was that, a very easy page,  which is for my art journal.

I do want to have a go at the two challenges,  which I'll do tomorrow.  Sunday Stampers wants masks,  only got two, but have got lots pieces of card where I've cut the dies,   the Stamp man is all about glitter, so thought I could use my new Indigo Blu Christmas stamps.

Thanks for stopping by to listen to my wafflings...   have a good day tomorrow

How did you attach the netting (tulle) to your piece. Perhaps I could use some in my AB.

Very impressed with the digi (?) card Cass. I fancy having a go at that but haven't seen anything I'd like to play with yet. Think I'd prefer to trawl the internet for images and then play - it's a thought.
Your reflections card is very clever and I'm liking the background you've got there.
