Good morning every one! Its another sunny and really warm day here. No pneumatic drills either, the silence must have woken me! Our road looks rather better now, less pot holes, and all the man-hole covers have been fixed properly again, as some of them were rather loose. Yesterday I went to a friend and had a day out, playing cards, going for walks, chatting and eating, so I was really keen to get started on something when I got home.
I painted and stamped some more papers for making die cuts or backgrounds. The first one was painted with orange metallic acrylic paint, then sprayed with home made sprays (re-inkers, water and perfect pearls) before being heat dried, stamped with stazon black and cut up.
Close up....this shows the lovely metallic sheen from the perfect pearls.
....And some pics of the finished die cuts. I have just placed them onto white paper to show them, they will be used on projects in the coming days!
And then I used the small scraps to punch out:
Fun and easy to make, and now I have a nice set of home made and unique embellies to use in my work. The second sheet is also finished, I will show the pics another day. But this is much cheaper than buying embellishments, and it is fun to make, so have a try! I use a good quality paper to work on, this gives the finished parts a real quality.
And before I fell into my bed, I made a card for the daughter of a friend, who is starting her own shop for fashion accessories in a few weeks. I am calling it *A dedicated follower of fashion*, and will put the sentiment on later when I have found my small alphas!
And the last card for *Less is more* - white on white. Well, def, the last one for today!
The flowers have been quilled, the sentiment has been cut using felt. Sorry again for the fuzzy photo, my camera is really playing up!
Tomorrow I will show you some of the lovely things I have received in the post this week. Till then, thanks for looking, have a great day and take care of yourselves!
