Hello my bloggie friends!
It is a quiet Saturday morning … Sandy & Gav are down the beach at Christian Surfers … Skye is still up the coast with family & friends … Shane is in Kuching, having finished his time at the orphanage … Sheree is a little slow getting going this morning and so I am taking the opportunity to do a quick post … before life gets busy again! 😀 Isn’t it interesting how something just catches your eye … and instantly appeals to you. And … what appeals to one … may not even be noticed by someone else??? That is what makes card making so exciting … the fact that we are all different … all have different styles … and can share our inspiration with others! This card caught my eye yesterday. It was one of the entries for the “Less is More” #2 … and for some reason I just LOVE IT!!! You can find the original card at “Beth’s Littel Card Blog“.
Beth had used markers straight to rubber and then spritzed the stamp image with water before stamping to give a watercoloured look. So … I tried to mimic her technique … but because the images are quite a bit smaller on my card … it just wasn’t working. So … I reverted to normal stamping and voila! The Confetti White card gives it a kinda “smudgy” … less precise image because the card isn’t as smooth as the Whisper White … but that was exactly what I was trying for! So I am really happy with the final result. And … yes … the design is different … I just wanted to put my own spin on Beth’s design! 😀
Did you notice the FABBO fringe on the ribbon! Another CASED idea from Kay’s blog “Stamping to Share” … and she even has a video tutorial to show you how to do this! 😀 It is such a great look … and a great new idea for adding ribbons!! Thanks Kay for sharing! Well … not sure what is on the agenda today. Gav has a trial “friendly” soccer game … just to give the boys a warm up before the soccer season begins … and we are going out for dinner with friends tonight. So … maybe I will find some time for stamping! But … first … I need to go do some vacuuming & fold some washing! Have a happy weekend … everyone! Hugs xxaxx
