Good morning you all! Seems to be a cool and windy day here, no sunshine and not much birdsong. They are probably busy holding tight to their branches so as not to be blown away.
Yesterday I spent a lot of time painting again, but can't show you yet as it isn't finished. And I have started 2 mini books for different swaps, but they are also not yet finished.
In the afternoon I decided to do my card for *less is more*. This week they want a one layer card with some embossing. No problem. But which embossing folder to use? Or should I use heat embossing? Or both? Then I decided to make a little scene and emboss part of it. So I made the card with the hot air balloon. Not totally bad, but not good either....
The next one I liked a bit better. Till I realised that the sentiment was not straight....
Tried again. Not bad, but not good either. Bin! (I love my bin!)
Then I remembered my lovely Penny Black cats and my *scrollswork* sentiment - and this was the result. It's not perfect, either, but I am leaving it as it is....enough of less is more for this week!
After that, I decided I was having a bad card day and decided to paint to soothe my nerves again. I made a mail art envelope to send the mini book I made last week. After painting and *bubbling* I distressed it with black stazon, did some random stamping and then decorated it with some rub-ons. The effect is rather wild, and I like it, so I hope the recipient will, too! I am wondering how the post lady will react, though....Anyway, who cares? Not my problem!
So, that was it for today. Time for some more coffee! Havea great day, whatever you are up to, thanks for visiting, and take care!
