Thought I would get a card done in plenty of time for the Muse Card Challenge
rather than my usual last minute style. I was getting my cards done last night, these two and a couple of others needed for future posts before I headed off for my weekly two days baby sitting duties
down the coast at my sons. The second day is new to me and I will be staying over night rather than going home as I need to leave home at 6.30am to get to their place on time in the morning so a new experience for the rest of the family. Copying for a night without me there to supervise mmmm.
Okay the Muse card this week
done by Kim Heggins is so cute.
The stitched diecut half circle, the blended background and little flowers
and stamped sentiment.
My own interpretation was to soften the blending by using the brush and barely brushing over the background negative die cut in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I blended a whole lot of zig watercolours on watercolour paper in rainbow colours with no water, in rainbow colours and left to dry then die cut some flowers with new dies from Papersmooches. I decided just to use one as they are quite large flowers and left the centres in as they were so pretty.
The little Chickie is from Purple Onion stamped and coloured with Copics and fits perfectly with the sentiment.
SORRY I FORGOT'
Inside the card :Here under the stem is meant to be a wonderful sentiment about how
I could never forget you my friend it's just your Birthday I forgot
But I stamped the wrong sentiment because I wasn't paying attention
and it was too late to fix it so you just get to see the top part of the inside, ok!!!
Next is a very busy card, a card I was inspired to do when I was looking through my digital images and I was thinking of my granddaughter.
I have taken two separate images and pulled them in together.
As soon as I showed Sophie she told me this story:
'Thats you and me, Nanny. We're on the beach. My hats like yours. Are we just talking??? And what does that say?? And where's the water?? Why haven't you got your glasses on?
Coloured with Copics, tried for a bit of sunburnt tinge on Nanny as I'm a white/ burn/white person whereas Sophie's got that lovely European colouring. After stamping the sentiment I felt it needed more to say how I really felt, so I cut out the sentiments from patterned paper and attached. The sun
is a Glossy sticker.
I am really enjoying these years of looking after the younger of my grandchildren and getting to sit and play games and imagine. Life has always been so full on and busy with all our children and running a business and then looking after mum and dad. Enjoy every minute you get because you never know whats around the corner.
So very sorry
