Just a quick post this morning to say .... Cheerio!
I'm off to the UK later to spend a nice relaxing week (as if that's going to happen ...... when do the Walmsley's ever do relaxing!) in the lovely Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water. This will be our home again for the next 7 days ......
...... the picturesque Fairlie Cottage on the banks of the River Windrush ........ apparently, they say that this is the most photographed cottage in Bourton ..... the last time we were there, every morning when you opened the curtains there was always someone taking a picture so they could just be right!! It is a pretty cottage though .,.... especially when the roses are in full bloom.
Anyway ... I have a plane to catch so must get on.
I'm playing along with this week's Less is More Challenge .... well, it is One Layer Week after all!
The theme this week is ......
You all know how I like to splatter ink here and there ...... so I just couldn't resist this one.
Distress Stain splatters ..... straight from the bottle .... love doing this and the results are always great.
I cut a mask the size of my sentiment (Stampin Up! Work of Art stamp set) and placed it onto my card. I then took the bottles of Distress Stain .... Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade..... and literally splat them straight down onto the card, over the edges of the mask
This is so much fun to do .... no two splats are ever going to be the same, and, depending on how hard you hit the bottle onto the card, it will vary the size of the splatters. The harder you hit the card with the bottle, the bigger the 'splat'
Once the mask was removed I stamped my sentiment in the middle, and then using a fine liner I drew around where the mask had been
And I had to splatter the inside too ......
Well that's it from me this week ...... I'm off to throw the last few bits into the suitcase and then we're on our way!
I'm not taking any craft stash with me either ..... so it really is a break. I am taking my laptop though so I'll be able to keep an eye on things. And my note book is coming with me too, so I can jot down ideas and plan stuff. I'm looking forward to a really lazy week.
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a lovely weekend.
Cheerio until next time ......
