It's a lovely sunny morning here in Ayr ... that will be because it isn't a Bank Holiday weekend in Scotland! If it was it would be tipping it down which, I believe, it is doing in the south of England. For everyone down there I hope the rain isn't ruining your holiday completely.
A bit of a different snippets post today. Just because it's Sunday and because I challenged myself to do this little exercise, and because I remembered to take the photos!
The challenge was, one, to make a one card, a baby card, using some of that massive pile of stash on my desk and, two, to immediately make another from the leftovers. Here's a shot of all the materials and equipment used.
UKPC swap. The remit was for a baby card so I decided to stick to a fairly neutral colour choice, yellow. Admittedly a fairly vibrant shade of yellow but, frankly, I don't do yellow. It's just not my colour, not lemon, primrose, sunshine ... whatever shade it is, it's not for me ... so any papers and card that are included in any pack tends to get shoved to the bottom of the stack and forgotten. Anyway, I digress, I decided on yellow and white for this card.
The rocking horse (Hobbycraft) was stamped on to the smaller of two white pearlescent nesties (a gift from my crafting friend Cass, who, incidentally, has been creating stunning encaustic art work recently) and for the yellow layer I did my usual trick of tracing round the smaller of the two nesties and then cutting it out leaving a small margin all the way round. A large faux pearl (Habico) in each corner finishes the front off.
Finally, I even managed to squeeze two flowers from the remaining snippets to decorate the inside and back.
