A touch of Turquoise .......

Happy Thursday,

What a lovely day we've had over here, the sun's been shining and it felt as though it was warming up nicely (oops .... the weekend's coming, maybe I should have kept my mouth shut!)

In case any of you were wondering, I've taken a little time off from some of my DT commitments (don't worry I'll be back in full swing next month ..... you don't get rid of me that easy!)  so things are not quite as frantic as usual in the old craft room.  It's so nice to be able go in there and just play.  In saying that though, I haven't really done much playing ........ I'm keeping up with my favourite Blog Challenges though.

This week's Less Is More theme is a colour challenge .....

A Touch of Turquoise

What do you think? .........

I'm trying to use some of that 'never seen the light of day' stash that's been sat around for forever..... this lovely stamp being part of it!

Don't ask me why it's never been used before .......... because I think it's gorgeous, so simple but elegant. It's called 'dreamy' and it's from Penny Black's range of cling stamps.

I've stamped it onto white card using the Forget-Me-Not Archival ink from the brand new Wendy Vecchi range (love these colours!) and Cactus Green, one of the colours from the range of small Stazon ink pads

I added a touch of glitter to the flower head and a tiny gem stone for a bit of extra bling!

The sentiment is from an SU stamp set, and has been stamped in Watering Can Archival Ink (Wendy Vecchi range again) and then it's been cut away using an oval punch.

The panel was then mat onto a piece of turquoise card stock, using foam pads to add a bit of depth.
I added a touch of colour to the edge of the sentiment using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and then attached it through the oval aperture.

Job done!

I'm back on Grandma duties this evening, the little man is staying overnight. We've just been down to the local park for an half an hour so he's tired himself out (me as well!!)  It's now Grandad's turn to sit and watch a DVD with him before he goes off to the land of nod!  In fact, it's gone a little quiet down there ..... I wouldn't be surprised if Grandad hasn't nodded off as well .... it wouldn't be the first time ...... Zzzzz! I'd better go and check.

Thanks for popping by ..... Cherrio until next time.
