Spent yesterday outside in windy but sunshiney🌞 (and not too cold) weather preparing my pots and containers for the winter season. I have the fleece ready for my precious Camellia 🌺 and have re-arranged most into bigger groups so they can protect each other from the monstrous winds we get here. An added bonus was I got all my washing dry!
Today by contrast is dull grey and drizzly so a perfect excuse to sit at my favourite desk (and ignore the ironing 🙈).
After failing miserably last month, I have managed to actually finish the cards I made for the Twofer Challenge this month which has the theme of Silhouettes.
The hardest part for me was deciding which stamp to actually use but as I had used this SU fern stamp recently it was - well - there!
The background on the square card was a smooshed piece using Cracked Pisatchio and Spun Sugar.
The two teeny birdies (which I simply LOVE) are from Inkylicious and the sentiment is Technique Tuesday.
I think they are there for each other during this weird time we are living through hence the sentiment!
I lightly inked the edge with Black Soot and matted it onto black card.
It looked really stark on the white card base so I blended a little of the inks on it.
My second card is shadow stamped with the fern in Memento Tuxedo Black and the second stamping white heat embossed.
In the absence of a coloured card base which I could use, I blended Wheat coloured Versacolour ink for the background and spattered a few black droplets.
Glad that I actually managed to link up this month instead of remembering 2 days after the challenge closes.
I hope everyone is coping - it's tough when there doesn't seem to be any light at the end of this loooong tunnel.
But when all else fails there's always blogland......
lots of cake.
In fact I have a rather nice Belljun Choklit cream filled Shoo Bun sat here on a plate next to me....
well it would be rude not to wouldn't it?
Take Care! x
