Hi there, how's your weekend going? I've been battling with the weeds in the garden this morning and lazing around this afternoon. Its far too hot to cook so I think its time to launch the new bbq and sit out in the garden for a couple of hours. But first I just wanted to share this card made with my trusty brayer.
The sun and hills were created by masking using copier paper and the water was brayered using Barbara Gray's scrunched paper technique although it doesn't show up too well in the pic unfortunately. Its a lovely technique though and give a beautiful watery effect. I've used an assortment of stamps with this card, the couple in a boat in from Clarity, the sentiment is from Joanna Sheen, butterflys from Enchanted ink and the foliage from Autumn leaves (silhouette blossoms). I've kept the card pretty simple and apart from the stamping i've just added some fantasy film to make the butterflies really flutter.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Moving along with the times: here comes summer
My Mum's Craft Shop: Something old, something new (all the stamps are old apart from the little Clarity couple with is new)
Pals Paper Arts: Use your favourite technique (mine is brayering)
Sir Stampalot: anything goes
The Poodles Parlour: Come fly with me
Right, I'm off to put my feet up and enjoy some sunshine while I've got some peace and quiet.
Thanks for popping by
