Good morning peeps,
Oh my word did I have a grumpy day yesterday, I didn't even want to spend time with myself I was that grumpy lol. It was 6 years yesterday since my car accident which has left me with this permanent very painful shoulder injury, I kept trying not to think about it & kept busy but those horrible memories just kept coming back, still at least that's over & done with for another year lol.
Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is to
Eeke no pretty papers, at least I didn't have to brace myself for cutting a new sheet up lol, the shocker is I've gone Tim Hotlz style and got all inky.
Images - hAnglar & stAnglar, Best Fishes
Medium - copics
Flowers - Prima & Wild Orchid
Charm - stash
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Sparkle - stardust stickles
To make the paper I randomly applied distressed inks using cut & dry foam and then stamped the fish from the Best Fishes stamp set on to my DIY paper using faded jeans distressed ink. Across the middle panel I have stamped some Magnolia shells with vintage photo distressed ink, as well as distressing the paper edges with vintage photo.
As my papers ended up being quite bold & bright I have gone for strong colouring too. Note to self - make a note of the copic colours I use when playing with them.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
365 Cards - underwater scene, Midnight Madness - sketch, Deep Ocean - sea, Kreative Stamp Friends - handmade background, Craft Your Passion - under the sea, Simon Says Stamp & Show - Tim Holtz technique, Fun With Shapes & More - twine / cord, CES - water it, Just Magnolia & hAnglar - anything goes, opt glitter
My blogging session last night was interrupted by a little fella who wanted to play and kept attacking hubby's feet, terrorising poor Dude (dog), jumping on my laptop and whizzing around the lounge chirping, yes he makes a really funny chirping sound when he's full of mischief lol.
I think we do forget sometimes that Diddly's only 18 months old as he's so big compared to naughty little Daisy Mae, so I tipped his toy basket out and spent ages sat on the floor playing with him, he loves the beads he stole off the Christmas tree lol.
Peace at last lol
I'm off to the craft shop this morning with Ali, I've got to be good as I put myself on a spending diet as I'm fast running out of storage space and I've so many stamps that haven't been inked it's ridiculous, obviously if I need any "essentials" I will have to buy them lol.
Thanks for stopping by
