Its a freezing cold day in Cape Town today... my daughter Wisaal and I were just caught in a hail storm... yep... I found out that I could still run...LOL... guess hail is the closest thing we are going to get to snow...
Perfect day to be playing by the fire with my toys...
I am still on a mission to use up my scraps.. and yes.. there are boxes full so I guess I will be busy for quite sometime still....lol... anyway... decided to try out the Mojo Monday Sketch 253, I have been subscribed to their challenge blog for ages.. and just never got round to playing...
My card base is kraft for a change.. which I edged with brushed corduroy and weathered wood distress ink to match the scrapbook papers I had left over from this years convention.
The page came together quite easily I must say, although when I initially looked at the sketch, I thought ... gee whizz.. will I be able to do that... it looked a bit daunting.
I distressed all the edges of the layers with my distress tool and added the same distress ink to the edges, found a navy blue piece of something.. its too stiff to be ribbon but it worked with the colours so I used it.. and managed to make a bow too.
The image and sentiment was stamped onto cream shimmer card with Archival Sepia ink and also distressed with weathered wood and brushed corduroy.
The stamp set is one of my new arrivals in the shop by Prima called La Femme item 557119. There are some really cool stamps in this set and in the overall range.
To finish I added some stickles to the tiny butterfly and coloured the flowers in blue.. I didn't have the right colour blue in my stash to match.. so had to make do with a lighter colour and finally added a clock embellishment.
That's it for today folks... until next time.. keep warm if you're cold and keep cool if you're hot... LOL
ps to all those wonderful artists who stop by and comment on my work, I really appreciate you taking time to visit... you make me feel extra special when I receive a comment mwah!
