Saturday already, where is the time going? I'm sure the universe has speeded up! To console us, we have a yummy theme at Sweet Stampin' this week, CAKE! Definitely worth shouting about.
My mojo had gone walkabouts this week (it may have decided to follow the bunny to see if there's a chance of eating that cake), so I made a very simple card with this gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley. I brushed water on my Tim Holtz watercolour card cut down yo make a square, and then watercoloured in the sky using by zig clean colour pens scribbled on my glass mat to make a wash. I dried the panel off with my heat tool and then stamped the image in versafine using my MISTI. I then coloured in the image using my zig clean colour pens and paintbrush. I when finished I added the Clearly Besotted sentiment using my MISTI to get a good impression.
I decided to doodle a border, but forgot that the watercolour card slurps up the ink and so my lines ended up thicker than I wanted. Should have used my other pen, oh well, I'll leave it for a day or two and may amputate the border and remount it if it still annoys me. I added a matching border on a 6x6 card base to match. Simples!
I'm looking forward to seeing all your yummy creations this week, just remember that you need to stamp on your project for it to be considered for our top three. Right, off in search of cake now, did anyone see where that bunny went?
I absolutely agree with you Cara that time is speeding up, I just can't believe how fast the weeks are whizzing by. You card is very apt for me today as I'm going to my Granddaughter's third birthday party, so I'm sure they'll be lots of cake! Your card is so sweet and I love the image of that bunny pulling the cake. Hope you find you mojo. Crafty hugs, Sandra xReplyDelete
