Good morning. It is so wet and damp this morning. I have a meal cooking in the slow cooker. It seems like the perfect day to stay in and craft. I hope you stay safe and warm.
I was looking through my files of photos and I came across this card that I haven't shared yet. It is a Sympathy card they are never easy to make. My husband wanted a card for someone at his work who had just lost his father-in-law.
I made two sheets of the background card with a stamp and a mixture of wet Brushos and Pixie Powders on my craft mat. Once I had finished stamping I spritzed the card to make the colours blend and mellow. I made one sheet a bit lighter so that the main stamp would show up a bit better.
This is a Woodware stamp called Going to Seed. I stamped it with Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with a black powder.
I do like creating these background but I do get very messy. I do have lots of inky kitchen roll that I should be making into backgrounds.
I am not going to be around much for the next few days. We are visiting Disneyland Paris for a few days with our daughter and son-in-law. I hope the weather is kind to us. We are all going to take waterproofs I think we will need them.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
I would like to enter challenge 60 at the A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge Blog.
