At this time of the year on the Far North Coast of New South Wales we do get more than our fair share of storms. Sometimes these storms turn into what the media has become fond of calling them ....a Weather Event!
Thankfully after days of shrieking wind, pelting rain, falling trees, sick dogs, power outages and an unwell computer.....today.....today....I spy from our windows ...patches of blue, that grow wider as I watch...I hear...the joyful carolling of magpies....Aahh!
The plus side of a Weather Event is unexpected time...crafting time that is!
I have been experimenting with Postcard bases - the kind you get in hotels, cafes and at events.
They provide an interesting random colour base and are strong. They are the perfect size too for a card set.
A purple rose? Why not! The stamps I used are from two sets of Chocolate Baroque recent releases.
I explored multiple embossing too! I've used the Wendy Vecchi Embossing powders which are substantial and enamel like. Still be careful when multi embossing not to apply heat for too long!
With this type of stamping there are unexpected results such as the extra box around the heart.
Unique makes every time!
To finish I pulled out the Washi Tapes, ribbons and braids and kept on playing.
Of course my very last tiny restrained ( for me) touches was the odd application of Viva Decor Pearl Pens, which also come in glitter now too!
This week I have a feeling that I'll be playing....an ongoing game of Catch Up!
Amusing Challenges - Anything Goes
Come and Get It Challenge - Layer it on ...I certainly have!
The Corrosive Challenge - Anything With Wings
Sunday Stamper -Use something new....every Wendy Vecchi embossing powder is now mine!
