Good morning crafters and happy Monday.
Today marks TWO momentous occasions.
1. The bungalow is finally empty and I hand the keys back today. You don't know what a relief it is to finally be shut of it!! I think Jen was worried that it would be difficult for me to say goodbye to the home I brought my children up in, but I drove away without a backward glance or second thought.
2. This is my 100th post. I wasn't convinced I'd have the enthusiasm for blogging and some days are more difficult than others. However I'm still full of card and art ideas so I'll keep going while I can.
While sorting out my stash and fitting it in with Jen's I came across a stencil I received per gratis at the NEC. It's a 2 part stencil so I took the main square and inked through it with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink before running it through the embosser to gave a faint relief.
I then placed the star section carefully in the centre and coloured through with Promarkers.
In my stash I had a butterfly cut from co-ordinations which I added to the bottom corner and bejewelled.
The final touch was an orange organza ribbon and bow, and a few more jewels, before it was mounted on a 6x6 Kraft blank.
This reminds me of the art style you get on narrow boats and the like. Hope you like it.
