Good morning all you lovely folk. Sincere apologies for turning down the heating in The Pond. I was a bit premature there for some of you gals but its back on again so off with the Ugg boots (Patricia) and get your toes back in the water lol!!!
Thank you for lovely comments on my previous post. As always, they are gratefully appreciated.
Now, today's post is my DT make for MAWTT and this week, The Boss Lady Hazel (Didos) has given us a recipe as follows;
Take 1 digi image
Add 2 patterned papers
Add 3 embellishments
And finally a touch of glitter
Hope you can pop over to have a look at what the rest of my DT colleagues have done and it would be lovely to see you enter the challenge.
I don't do digi, as most of you know, so I set about finding a nice image that didn't need colouring. I saw this lovely image on http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.co.uk of a Victorian lady.
The first thing that popped into my head (Having shifted thoughts of cheese flavoured snacks to one side lol!!!) was to create the scene of a photo, hanging in a frame, on some old fashioned wallpaper. . . . . . . . .you're probably wishing I stuck with cheesy poofs now hahaha!!!
I wanted the frame to be substantial so, don't laugh, I made it out of. . . . . . funky foam!!!
I had a job lot of the stuff from when I worked at the place where the deer and the antelope play so I cut the Spellbinders Reflective Moment die twice out of brown funky foam and glued them together, just to add more depth.
I then rubbed CE Vintage Green gilding wax over the top and then brushed a bronzy coloured mica over the top of that.
Added a few prods with the pokey tool for that vintage woodworm effect (lol!!!) and that was that. Pretty cool I thought, for a bit of foam.
Cream card base (A5)
First Edition Isabelle 8x8 pad (for both papers)
3 embellishments - 2x bronze pearls and brown satin ribbon
The glitter is encapsulated in the paper (see picture above)
Vintage Photo distress ink (gently swiped across the digi to give it a sepia tone)
Spellbinders Reflective Moment die
Brown funky foam
CE Vintage Green gilding wax
The beauty of the foam is that the card is still quite light.
Hope you like the result of my overactive imagination hahaha!!!
Oooh, have to say as well, junior plates for the GC. . . . . . .Love em! Cant believe I didnt bother getting them previously as they are marvellous.
Meeting Nesta for breakfast this morning at a local cafe that does a lovely small full English. She's off to sunny Spain at the end of next week so we have a couple of things planned before she grabs her castanets (steady. . . . . .!!!)
No more handbags spotted yet. Probably just as well as I have a real thing for them. I am ashamed to admit, I am a label snob with my handbags but apart from my crafting (and Kickers boots/shoes) they are my only guilty pleasure.
Well, that's me for today folks but just to spoil you, I'm back tomorrow with House of Cards hahaha!!!
Have a great day and be good.
Ps. . . . .Maureen I forgot to say, I only know of Sterling Moss from F1 history books, hahaha!!!
