Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! I have had numerous attempts today to take a pic of this card. Each time the lovely pale blue truned out either a yukky turquoisey washed out colour or even worse a vivid 'need to wear your sunglasses to look at it' bright blue. My normally reliable little digi camera decided today to throw a hissy fit and not reproduce my pics - don't know whether it was the light, the reflection of my (blue) jumper, or me (probably the latter............).
So I resorted to scanning - and consequently the white silk art card the image is on is now glaringly white and the girl and duck (goose?) outlines are not as defined as they are in real life - but hey ho, at least I tried to share today's make with you. You will just have to believe me when I tell you this DOES look better in real life... it must do cos for once I quite like something I've made!
So - image is called 'Sunday Afternoon', coloured with promarkers, cut out with a nestie then dusted with Weathered Wood distress ink and matted onto blue card. The papers are Craftwork Cards and the Forever Friends Springtime pad and oh I stitched again! Pale blue gingham ribbon from my stash as was the button and the tiny blue pearls. I have not yet placed a sentiment on the card - I may well have saved this for my much loved Mum for Mothers Day if she had still been here - so - am undecided as to what I shall use it for and will wait until a suitable occasion arises.
I love being in my crafty space! It's a place where I can make cards, paint, alter stuff and lose myself!!
If I manage to sell anything I've made the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Campaign.
I am a football fanatic and am a mad Liverpool FC supporter.
I've been tracing my family tree for the last 7 years (with one ancestry line traced back to 1605!) and this is another addiction.
I divide my time up doing all the things I like to do - crafting, genealogy, and playing bowls! I am lucky enough to have formed several friendships through my crafting and love being in blogland!
Honoured to be selected for this award- great talented artists here and to be picked amongst them once was amazing - four times is awesome!!!
But I don't do blog awards - thank you for thinking of me. x
