Hope you are all having a good day.
We had varied weather here again, winds, rain, sun and a lovely rainbow in the evening, which lasted for more than half an hour.
Today I am showing 2 of the DT cards I made for GG.
Gecko Galz and Itkupilli are joining in a cross promotion this month to show how well the products can be combined. The background paper is from Itkupilli, and the image from the Dance Jewel it sheet. The arched door was from my stash. I distressed the edges of the paper, and matted it with sea-green card to bring out the green in the paper. I used a 6x6" card in gold.
(Material list: card blank, matting paper, BG paper from Itkupilli Primavera 2/14, die cut frame, fussy cut image, foam squares)
This oriental style card was made using an image from the Japanese Traditions 2 collage sheet. The image was matted with red and black card. I used a card-blank 8x4". I made a mat from a piece of card 1/2" smaller, glued it to the card, and covered half of it with the cherry blossom paper. All edges were inked,and I stamped the script along the middle left. I hope I have it the right way up! The dots were added with felt pens and stickles. I used a black die-cut as embellishment.
(Material list: card blank, card and paper for matting, stamp, image, die cut.)
I had a long walk along the shore this morning, it was less windy there than on the tow-path. The Rhine is still carrying high water and the swan and the ducks are enjoying the extra 'islands'.
This bush was being blown hard!
The row of love-locks along the path by the castle is getting longer - I wonder if they are all still together?
This afternoon I made another batch of jam with peaches, adding the usual spices,
ginger and raisins soaked in rum (of course, just for disinfection!). It has a very mellow and rich taste, and one jar walked out with my neighbour, so now I only have 3! But the middle one is a very big one.
The rainbow is always something which cheers me up, and I stood and watched it till the last remains had disappeared.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
