Did you see the solar eclipse this morning? ...... it was a bit of a damp squib over here, literally ..... it rained!!! There was nothing but clouds in the sky over Douglas .... it did go dark though so we knew that something was going on. The clouds are clearing now, and we've got blue skies and sunshine ... typical!
Anyway on to today's little bit of craftiness. My entry for the Happy Little Stampers March Sketch Challenge
Here's what I came up with ..... CAS and suitable for so many occasions ....
I must say ...... I'm liking DL cards at the moment!
I've used a stamp that I've had in my stash forever .... forgotten it was there to be honest (oops!) and I love it! I'll probably find a few more of these over the next few days (things I've forgotten about) when I start boxing up more of my stash ready for the move!
I've just stamped the image onto the bottom half of my card using Versafine ink then added colour to the blooms using Distress inks and a blending tool (hmmm ..... this could also qualify for the March HLS CAS Challenge ..... they want to see Sponging. This fits the bill doesn't it!? .... I do like a two for one!)
You can see I also added a few drops of Glossy Accents to the flowers ..... dew drops maybe (or rain drops if you're on the Isle of Man like me!! .......... No I shouldn't really say that ........ apart from the minor blip this morning the weather's been lovely this week ....... Spring is here .... yipee!!)
I added more of the flowers to the inside and coloured them the same way.
OK .... this is also being entered into the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge ...... Sponging
although I will be back over the weekend with another entry
Thanks for popping by ..... I'm on nurse duty again today. The little man is still full of spots .... and full of energy too. Obviously he can't go to nursery so I'm having to keep him occupied!
Cheerio until next time
PS ...... Remember the Giveaway I did for reaching 200 Followers ..... well it's been over 7 seven days since the winner was announced and it still hasn't been claimed ...... so I put the numbers back into Mr Random thingy and did the draw again. I'll be back later to announce the results. See you then! x
