I decided to make a couple of cards this week, and to dig through my stash to find stuff I have seldom/never used before. Here are the results.
This is using a stamp set that came free with a magazine, which makes it really easy to do coloured birds without the need to colour them in yourself. As well as this there is a stamp I have had for ages and used once, which I used for the grass and the sky, some tiny tattered florals with jewels in the middle, and a bow from my stash
This was made with a combination of new and old things. The papers are all old, and I inked them with distress crayons, going with blue around the edge of the outer one instead of my go-to browns and blacks. The frame is snipart coloured with ink, and the plants were coloured with lindys magicals and a little bit of yellow distress crayons. The sentiment I did in two different shades of blue, but it was too different so I used distress glitter over the top.
I've also been working on a new stitch project, which will be put to the side very soon as I have had a couple of requests. Here is where I am at the moment.
From this you would have no idea what it is would you? It is actually poppies. The plan was to finish it by November, but as I have been asked to do a couple of cross stitches for someone, this will have to be put on hold. I'm just working on it until they arrive. I've been reimbursed for them, so I haven't had to fork out for the cross stitch kits myself at least. I did order a couple of things this week, as Beads Direct had their grab bags again and from the pictures they looked good this time around. I'm pretty skint for the rest of the month though, although I have my trusty cinema giftcard to use if I want to (Avengers at the end of the month!)
Until next time
