Bump the Bear! (and can anyone help?)
In a mad hurry but needed a card for a child's birthday so had a bit of a 'lightbulb' moment and remembered this LOTV offering called 'Birthday Bumps.
Although this started off it's life as a pre-coloured image, I added a bit of pastel chalk to the sky (as the white background was really stark) and some watercolour and distress inks on the actual image to darken it a bit.
I kept the layout quite simple and straightforward and used up a couple of odd pieces of paper that co-ordinated with the check background.
A simple layering job, stamped sentiment, a couple of pearls and some ribbon and job done!
I have been doing my 'domestic goddess' impersonation today - caught up with the washing, ironing, hoovering and general housework so am feeling quite smug.... LOL
Have a free evening so am hoping to be able to do something constructive and a bit more fun than using the duster!!!
HELP? - All the blogs I follow have disappeared from my reading list- only one at a time is showing in the feed - when I click 'view more' nothing happens! Anyone any ideas??
Thanks for calling in - will be round to do my catch up with you all later IF I CAN FIND YOU ALL - hope the sun is shining wherever you are. x
