Yesterday was spent hunkered down indoors - as always here on the top we get slightly stronger winds than those who live at lower levels and it is something that we have come to be accustomed to over the winter months but my goodness yesterday was to put it frankly - RIDICULOUS!!
IT IS AUGUST🌞⛱ NOT NOVEMBER!🌀⛈ The rain was horizontal and the winds were just plain daft. Our barns are down a small private road and we have about 20 yards to the roadway where we leave the bins on collection day - collection done and dear husband went to get his coat to bring them in - as he walked outside 6 emptied bins (ours and all our neighbours) decided to take off - some going up the rest of the hill and some going down. He was so wet by the time he retrieved them he had to change all his clothes and the air was - a little - blue!
So here's a share for today - I saw this simple technique and as it is one I have not tried I gave it a go. Can't say whether I like it or not really!
I don't have a lot of shades of Distress Oxides which is what the demo used but I have a few shades of Memento Versacolor which is a pigment ink so used that.
It's just simple ink blending onto black cardstock and I thought it crazy that I had not done it before, not least to see if I liked it!
I used a stencil from Funky Fossil and 2 shades of blue and 1 lilac .
The Inkylicious sentiment always cheers me up, simple white heat embossed and a few enamel dots.
I did another and used pink and turquoise inks, silver embossing for the sentiment and silver mat behind but I liked that one even less!
I think because they are 'dark' cards and it is such a change for me, that may be the reason I am not overwhelmed!
The Jury is still out as to if I will do this again but I would be interested to know your thoughts and if you've done this- is it something you like?!
As for these 2 they will just sit in the stash box - maybe I will find a use for them at some point- then again maybe not!
Thanks for calling in today - I know elsewhere in the World there are storms and all kinds of other troubles, pandemic included (we're still in local lockdown!), so stay safe and I send you all a hug! x
