Hope you're week's going better than mine ...... I can't seem to get anything done and the house is in a right old mess. Not my fault though .... not this time ...... it's all down to Lauren. They're moving out next week into a nice little house with her partner ...... so the packing has started.
There's boxes everywhere, clothes and shoes everywhere ...... although that's nothing new, and there's no space in the garage!!!! Looks like our weekend is going to be spent clearing stuff to the re-cycling centre .... oh joy!!!
Anyway ..... enough of all that. The little man and I have been having some fun in the old craft room. He's had quite a few birthday parties on his social calendar recently so we needed some cards making. He spotted these little guys from the Out of This World set from Clearly Besotted and thought they were perfect for the job .......
Silly Grandma forgot to photograph the others before they were sent but ..... there's still one party left so we needed one more card.
Two birds .... one stone and all that ........ I thought I'd play along with this week's Less is More challenge, it's been a while.
As it was the first Saturday of the month at the weekend, it's a Colour Challenge and the ladies have chosen ......
BLUE and BROWN
Don't these little guys look cute in their shimmery colours
Everything has been stamped using the Vintage Sepia Versafine ink and then embossed with a clear powder.
I've coloured the cute aliens using Starlight Paints from Imagination Crafts, mixed with a little water .... love the shimmer from these and the colours are fab! I've used Mediterranean Sky for the blue and the gorgeous Topaz for the brown.
You can see they were stamped on a separate piece of card and then fussy cut before attaching them to my card using foam pads.
I applied some Distress Ink onto the background using the acetate smooshing technique ......
and added a little something on the inside ...... well, every alien needs a space ship don't they .... how else would they get around (hehehe!)
Well that's it from me today .... I suppose I should make a start on something. Ironing maybe, mop the kitchen floor or .... do I go to the old craft room with these guys who have just arrived .....
Woof! Woof!! ........ the housework can wait.
Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
Cheerio until next time
