when my Mojo was on a break..... Yesterday was stamping group at Stamp'n'create. Usually I have a great day - but for some reason ( maybe was too tired after the trip south) I struggled to get motivated or inspired. Even seeing all the lovely things the others were doing didn't really get me moving... Still I did manage 4 cards for the day....
I started by using some of the watercolour backgrounds I had made using Joy's technique - basically copied a card I had already done but this time in blue rather than purple.
Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. It involved using punches and cutting the petals down the middle, splaying them apart and then putting 6 large and two small together. Quite pleased with the results despite how fiddly it was. Once I made the flowers I followed the design in the magazine to make the card.
I needed to use the card I had the embossing at the top of, so I made a very simple card. I trolled through my stash I had with me and found a butterfly I had stamped onto some pink vellum. I stuck it onto a piece of alcohol inked card I found and cut it out.
And then I finally put together a card with a piece of acetate I had stamped and coloured iwth alcohol inks a few weeks ago, NOT AT ALL HAPPY with the result.... just couldn't get it how I imagine it....
So this is going to be a sample card!!!! Just to show the technique.
I didn't really feel happy with any of these.... but I did have a great day chatting and catching up with the others. And I did manage to get a couple of stamped images from one of Sue's lovely stamps - for a special card.
Hope the week is good for you all.... Going to be awesome for me... My birthday tomorrow and then on Friday ( very early) hubby and I are off to Australia for 5 days - a mini break-.... meeting up with my parents and going to spend a few days in Mooloolaba. This is where we are staying.... but before then I will be drawing the winner of my giveaway... stay tuned tomorrow.
