Good afternoon all , thanks for all your lovely messages , emails and text that you have sent,..you really are such lovely friends.
Adam is still in a lot of pain, but has been given stronger painkillers, and signed off work ...he has to wait a couple of weeks for the swelling to go down before he starts physio. We are just very grateful that it wasn't any worse...
I have got a hire car so at least I can still get up to Kendal for the workshop on Thursday.
Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for Barbara's last tv show...it uses the shoe stamp and one of the backing papers from the New England Fall, paper pack...Another fabulous collection of papers...brilliantly designed by our Dee.
It also uses a great little technique,,,bubbles...
I started with a piece of stencil card...and some artistry ink pads
I blended the three colours
Then instead of spritzing with water .....
I made some bubbles with washing up liquid
And dipped my card into the bubbles ( not into the water though )
Now the next bit is a bit of a trial and error...or guess work...you need to leave the bubbles to give them time to faux bleach ...but not too long to soak into the card..
Then out with the heat gun....and the bubbles disappear...
But look what is left
The bubbly patten
Then some stamping using black Archival ink ,some matting and layering
And some paper piecing , then finally a little colour with Spectrum Noir pencils
How fab is that background...?
My new favourite technique ....
I made some more backgrounds today
I just love finding new ways of playing with ink...don't you...
It's that time gain....another dog walk...oh yes and more muddy fields..
Enjoy your evening all.
Much love and hugs
