Friday Blues

Weekend almost here and I have spent this week coughing and spluttering and generally feeling sorry for myself!! Trouble with colds is they make you feel so damned MISERABLE!!! But it has made me feel grot and not feeling like doing much - which explains why the wash bag is full and the ironing pile is untouched for a week.... (no change there then really!)

I was lucky to win a challenge recently and spent the voucher on 3 Kaisercraft stamp sets! So of course, even with the cold I had to stamp.
This fountain stamp is called 'The Lake House'. All the papers are from Raspberry Road's 'Country Picnic' set. Stamped the border stamp round the edges then distressed and used Weathered Wood DI.

Coloured it using Promarkers, adding some Perfect Pearls for the flower centres.
The sentiment was from another of the Kaisercraft sets called 'Enchanted Garden'. Distressed the same then stamped the rose border along the background card, just adding a little blue pearl. 

A few more pearls, a bit more distressing and some broderie lace finished it off! Papers also carried on into the inside.

Challenges -

Time Out - Inspired by Words (Flower)
Butterfly Challenge - Stamping/Sapphire
I Love Promarkers - Bingo (Sentiment/Free/lace)
Passion for Promarkers - Papertastic

Have a great weekend everyone. x

  16. Feeling yuk is no fun but leaving the washing and ironing is a necessity in order to do our crafting. Love this card and can't get my hands on that there stamp nowhere. sold out!! Don't have those raspberry road papers neither . Boo Hoo! Loving the colour combination and you will be entered twice in the challenge as you have included both stamping and the colour sapphire on your card. Hugs Mrs A.
