Thought I'd post these cards while I'm waiting for the storm to really hit town. It's already gye (Scots for very but more so) windy but that, apparently, is just a taster of what is to follow later today. Anyway, just in case I have to shut down here's a very quick share of some cards I made recently for the January UKPC swap - the theme for which was 'snow'.
I had to familiarise myself with my brayer again ... I don't think I have had it out in months, or longer. My hands are not what they used to be and I struggle with my grip so I didn't make as good a job this time but I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet. I did make a few practice pieces though and here's another two cards made with the rescued pieces.
This last one is matted on to a snippet of blue cardstock so I shall be submitting it to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 214.
I'm also submitting the first card to CHNC Challenge - 266: where the theme this week is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' and CHNC Challenge Extra for February 2016
I should add that there is just two little differences in the supplies used this time around. Instead of using Archival ink to stamp the row of houses, and therefore having to colour them in with AquaMarkers, I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and a selection of ProMarkers to colour the houses.
If you caught my Rudolph Day Countdown To Christmas card you would have noticed that I reflected that it would have looked better if I had rounded the corners on the card blank to match the PL Topper, as I did with the patterned papers. Well, Kath, of Plain & Simple, suggested I quite simply pull a couple of star gems off and round the corners, so I did. And I was right, it looks much better with all the corners rounded.
Apologies to those of you who look forward to the In A Vase On Monday ... it's much too wild out in the garden to go flower picking, always supposing there's any blooms to pick!
Well, that's me done rambling for now ... I'm off to fit in a bit of bloghopping now before having to take The Boss for her monthly visit to the vet. She's overdue her injections and so a bit poorly today but tomorrow she will be as sprightly as a kitten again ... well almost :)
Take care and stay safe,
