Hi friends...welcome to February!! A very windy one here...but what happened to January? I blinked and missed it but it is good here in the UK that we are heading to spring and the days are getting a little longer thank goodness.
Here is a recent birthday card for a friends husband using a NBUS die and all made from snippets...so two places to go and join in with this one. It has been received but the birthday is not till the weekend, but as they do not look at my blog I am safe to post.
For me this came together fairly quickly and I for once am pleased with the result and intend to do some for 'the box' in different colourways.
So, as I said all snippets from the box of LARGE snippets...yes I have three boxes, you guessed it, large, medium and tiny!!
The inking was done on paper with three shades of oxides blended with my brushes that I love so much and the top layer (the die) was cut into a piece of linen textured card, raised over the top with foam pads and the addition of a few glossies and a sentiment. (Uniko). The die is from Crafters Companion in the sale (turned out a good buy)and has two outer edges so it can be use three ways.
I did wonder afterwards if the colours were suitably male.
I hope you are all well and thank you for stopping by. Blog land is diminishing before our eyes, but I still feel it is the friendliest and safest of the social platforms, so every visit by you is so very much appreciated.
I will be back hopefully next week when i can share Thomas's 6th birthday card that I am pleased to say has already arrived in Oz :)
I am ..hopefully...I say that as I always have trouble linking up..to join in the following challenges.
Snippets Playground #420...............all snippets as in post
NBUS #35 ......................................Crafters Companion die
