thanks once again, for all of the lovely comments left here over the past few days... They have helped me to continue with my life....
I spent some time crafting yesterday on my extra day off. First off, I saw this amazing sketch on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog. I don't have a lot of Penny Black stamps but had a set which I hadn't stamped ~ Enjoy Life~
Lots of different stamps used. Two Hero Arts, one Inkadinkado and two Penny Blacks (both from the same set)
HA stamps ~ Design Fabric cling stamped in Pumice Stone on the watercoloured paper and Envelope Pattern stamped in Brilliance Twilight onto the pink card. ( Such a wonderful subtle background) The Inkadinkado flourish is also stamped in the Brilliance ink. The birds and sentiment are from Penny Black Enjoy Life. I coloured them with Faber Castell pencils and Gamsol and distressed the background with Faded Jeans distress ink. The flowers I made using two tones of purple paint chips and two Spellbinders dies. The leaves die is from Sizzix. So quite a mixture of bits and pieces used. This was my "Happy Card"
Then I worked on a card to send to Sue R's family. I wanted something simple but heartfelt. I made a sheet of alcohol ink in soft colours... and then overstamped part with Musical background in black.
I punched hearts out of the plain and stamped portions and alternated them onto a cream textured background and added the sentiment by Stampit.
I am looking forward to hubby getting home tomorrow. It has been a hard few days.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is going well
