That Friday feeling .....

Afternoon folks ......

Twice in one day eh!   I said yesterday I was trying to catch up with everything and it's going ok .... so far! Even the household stuff is getting done.

It's time for another Blog Challenge ....... on the last minute as usual, but hey! better late than never.
It's time for Less is More , and this week's challenge is all about .....  COLOUR
 
We've been given a choice too, we can either use
THREE COLOURS
or
THREE SHADES OF ONE COLOUR

Hmmmm .... in the end I went for Three Colours ....... blue, gold, and black (wasn't sure if I had to include my stamping colour so I did, just to be on the safe side)


I've been playing with the latest stamps from IndigoBlu ..... did you see Kay launch them on Create & Craft earlier in the week?
I love them .... especially the Under the Sea set which is what I've used here.

I masked off the rectangle panel on a piece of white cardstock and then applied my colour (Salty Ocean Distress ink).
I spritzed with a little water to remove some of the ink, then stamped the bubbles over the top using the same blue ink.
The fish was stamped and embossed with a clear powder, then coloured using the IndigoBlu English Cottage Acrylic Paint in the brand new Metallic Gold colour. 


 Just look how this paint shines when the light hit its ...... gorgeous!


I finished off by adding the words above the fish, and of course a little something on the inside ....


Job done!!

Right .... need to get a move on now.  We're out this evening (no Grandma duties!)  

We're off to a Wine Tasting at our favourite wine store ..... The Wine Cellar in Douglas, then probably into town for a bite to eat later. I'll have to try and be good though .... I don't want all that hard work on the treadmill this week to go to waste.  Yes I have actually been on 'the beast' ..... I've done an hour every morning, nothing too strenuous mind, just a nice brisk walk whilst watching 2 episodes of Emmerdale.  I haven't really been watching what I eat ..... you know me, I love my good food but, I have lost 3lbs, so it's a start! If I keep that up every week I'll be pleased.

Thanks for popping by (again!)
Enjoy your Friday evening and I'll see you again soon
