Time, as usual, is flying fast. I am sure the days used to be longer. The older I get, the quicker the days fly by. It is also my friend B's birthday, so I hope she will have a happy day. I will be visiting her later and taking her a little present and her card.
For the card I used a photo of her dog, which I mounted onto a tiny canvas, which was also mounted onto an easel card.
The second piece is a postcard made for the Craft-room Challenge, where masking has to be used. I used a mask from *Tattered angels* *ironworks* to make the gate, and used a cutout of the little boy and his teddy as a mask before distressing the background. I drew round the gate with a black pen to add more definition. I stamped the teddy again and decoupaged it to give it more volume, and added a TH *iron* fence at the front, bending it slightly to give it more depth. Thestamps in both tags are from Scrollsworks.
The second postcard has also been masked with the same gate, and I used a cut-out of the stamped image again to mask the background before distressing it. I turned the seat the little girls are sitting on into a swing, and hung it from a branch. I added the little guardian angel to look after the adventurous girls.
I hope that all those in the path of *Irene* stayed safe, and that your weather will have no more nasty surprises for you in the next time.
Okay, that was it for today. I won't be around for most of today and part of tomorrow, so I'll catch up with your blogs tomorrow afternoon. Have a nice day, thanks for visiting and take care!
