Hello there lovely people! I hope you had a great weekend - we certainly did - yesterday I made another big batch of soup to aid the diet then spent the afternoon at rehersals again painting trees for the scenery. Its starting to come together now and I think it might finally be ready for the opening night on the 23rd January.
Anyway - onto my first item today which is the drawing of my candy winner - thanks so much everybody for entering - I didn't take a screenshot of random.org. I assigned everybody a number in comment order apart from those people who expressed not to be added to the draw. That meant that my min was 1 and my max 27. The number that was drawn was 13 which corresponds to Brenda. Brenda - if you could reach out to me before this time next week I'll organise your candy for you! I know your off for some treatment this week so I hope you see this!
Onto todays post - me and my mum bought some primary elements in the create and craft sale and the two cards that I'm showing today resulted from a play with them.
The primary elements really are cool - the shine doesn't really come through on these pictures but its amazing. The colours in this card are from the set my mum bought - I think they were called tropical something. sorry been looking on the net for the name and failed miserably to find it. The stamps are from sheena douglass - the scrolls are early stamps from creative expressions and the Hepburn quote is from a set you can get here at Crafters Companion. The extra fluorish is from fluorish with a Bling sent by the lovely Lucy - thanks hun!
I'd like to enter this card into the current crafterscompanion-january-2014-hearts Challenge.
I chose the set called Costa Rica and I used in to make the following card:
here - I used the primary elements to create the background and then stamped in sepia onto this. Then I stamped the fish on acetate and painted on the reverse in silkies from Imagination Crafts. I've made this card for my Joanna Sheen Craft Forum card swap! I hope my swap partner likes it!
I've got a busy day ahead - I'm doing backgrounds with my ladies at coffee pot this morning - thats after a run - then its time to get my rainbows plan together for wednesday and finally I have a PTA meeting in the evening! Hoping to get back in the attic after that to start some DT work!
Hope you have a great Monday!
