Good afternoon to all my bogging friends.
I hope you are all well and enjoyed the weekend as we hurtle full pelt into the last week in July!! Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post and for the good wishes regarding the neck which is marginally improved........but head down aggravates......so yes I know, keep your head up!!...............not easy to craft read etc with things held at eye level...lol!! I only feel in my maybe late twenties....ok maybe thirties.... but my body sure says otherwise!!
I have a male birthday card today......for someone with a love of tractors!
I cut the card base using Spellbinders Grand Labels11(discontinued I think)..........and the layers too although the black layer is cut in half and separated to offset it at the ends.
The tractor and bird stamps are Sheena Douglas and boy a few of those attempts at the tractor went in the bin I have to say. I tried to stamp with distress inks and then pull the colour out with a water brush...would it play? NO!...don't know if it was me or the card I was using (bad workman always blame their tools they say).....so being a perfectionist, in the end I opted to stamp in Versafine and colour with copics. I wanted to keep it all monotone. The sentiment was one from stash.
So there we have it...no frills and fancies but a few 'choice words' in the making.
It's cooler and rather cloudy here today, no blue skies sadly.....but as yet no rain thankfully.
Right must away and get busy.
Enjoy your week and I will catch you again soon.
Take care now.
