Good Morning everyone, the sun is shining here in the Fens and I had to go take a second look out of the window just to be sure....... I know it's psychological, but what a difference it makes to your day just to see a bright ray coming through the windows.
Before I go any further I want to say a huge thank you and welcome to me new followers, so many of you have linked up lately and I really do approciate your support and friendship.
The shoulder has been suitably manipulated, a few sessions with the physio and I am keeping it all crossed that the pain will start to subside. It's still a nightmare to type.....I am doing this post in short bursts......the desk height and position just does not agree with the shoulder, so blogging and the like are still limited.....thank goodness my craft desk is a little lower and I can lean the bad arm and work the fingers from a static position.
If any of the Stampalot blog hops winners are reading this, the prizes have all gone off the the PO today. Sorry about the delay but I have not been able to drive for the past week due to the sling....thought it unwise to try.
A few shares today, the first one something very new and alien to me as it involved working with peeloffs........grief are they fiddly. I have been wanting to try making one of these masks for ages......it reminds me so much of all our trips top Venice and where we are going again this Summer. I followed a template I had which involves cutting various elements from card and fabric, then decoupaging and decorating with peeloffs, flowers and brads. This is for the following challenges:
My next share used Penny Black 3815J Love Blush over a background stamped with Hero Arts H2365 Old French Writing, then coloured with a mixture of Copics and Aquamarkers. I printed out Robbie Burns Red Red Rose poem and distressed it and used as a backing for the stamped piece, all laid over Wishful Thinking DP. I made a rose from plain red paper, added some gold to the edges and sprayed with iridescent glitter. Some swirls, lace, cord and a couple of pins to embellish. This card is for the following challenges:
