Love life

Good morning everyone

Well the carpet is now booked so it is all systems go to get everything completed before he arrives. I am getting excited now, it has been a long time aince we had any major work done on our house and although I hate the mess it creates it is wonderful when it is finished.
I am going to try and tackle a mixed media canvas to complete our room so today I am going to be playing with ink, stencils and texture paste - wish me luck.
Today's card is a recent make for my husband's teenage neice - 
For this card I have used - 

  • Sheena's A little bit sketchy Live stamp set
  • watercolour card
  • Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens - fig, macaroon and crystal clear
  • white linen card
  • matt black card
  • Sheena's Day of the Dead floral fiesta stamp and die set
  • Textures snow embossing folder from Crafter's Companion
  • dazzler from the Hobby House

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto watercolour card which I coloured using the splodging technique.
For the background I coloured lines of colour onto the watercolour card with my Sparkle pens and then applied water to move the ink around the card. Once it was dry I ran it through the embossing folder and then sanded the colour back.
That's all from me today folks. Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. this is stunning Lesley - the embossing folder works so well like this. Have to say you've got this decorating business all wrong!! - my daughter has another system - you go away for the weekend to a wedding, leave your two kids with me, leave the paint with Dad and he paints and takes the old carpet up while you're away ready for the new one coming tomorrow - job done lol.... or is it me who's the mug and got it wrong!!!! - xx
