Hi, sorry have not been around much since Sunday, but have a lot of things going on at the moment, boring things like visiting the hospital for various tests before my 'op' on Thursday. Its only a small 'op' so should be back in circulation by Saturday and hopefully feeling like a new woman............lol
'Whispers in the Wind' was made for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge using the technique shown on page 59 - Inking and Stamping Masks; hosted by the lovely Linda of Studio L3. Normally I make tags for these challenges but as I have to make some cards this month (sob sob) thought I had better incorporate the technique into this card.
My mask was made from the plasticky bit in a Chocolate Marshmallows Box. Stamps used are by Inkadinkado and Crafty Individuals. Distress Inks, Dusty Concord, Spun Sugar and Broken China. Flowers cut out from a punch after being distress inked and gloss modge podged then stickles for the centres.
'Best Wishes', is for the Less is More Challenge, http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ make a one layer card using flowers or trees. Stamp used by Inkadinkado; Distress inks, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Broken China.
Now this was going fine until I spilt some curry on it, how this happened......not a clue.........so had to chop the end off the front and dry emboss the inner back part (if you know what I mean) and ink that. Not sure if this is acceptable, but am sure the girls will tell me.........lol
Both these terrific blogs have some amazing entries and well worth a visit if you get the time. Thank you for all your support and good wishes. Am off to blog hop now and see as many of you as I can. Take care and have a great week. Annette x
