Well I can't believe how fast time has gone by since my last post. I'm glad to say that the builders have now finished. The plasterer had done his bit for the builder but we want a couple more ceilings taken back to smooth (rather than artex) and they are coming in at the beginning of next week. At the moment we are trying to get our bedroom painted just so we can move some furniture into there while the other ceilings are done. Anyway while the builders were here I slipped into my She Shed and had a play with the Lavinia Stamps again. When I had to move stuff out of my craftroom in the house I found a box of die cut shapes for stamping and matting, part of a bundle that I had bought a few years ago from QVC. The card was from Kanban so all good quality and was crying out to be used. Below are two of the cards that I made while I was playing, the first made with the same colours that I used in my recent challenge card for Lavinia and the second in blues and greens.
The flowers were made using a Tattered Lace die and embossing folder set and coloured using distress inks, the sentiments are from a collection that I bought from Crafters Companion. I had quite a few play days in the Shed before I had to come in and join in with the decorating (not my favourite way of using paints, but needs must I suppose). I still have some bits from my playing to show you but they do need finishing properly before I post them on here.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
