A Wild but Fun Background

I almost forgot to post a card today. It’s been another busy day. We are having our three youngest grandsons next week and I had a very complicated jigsaw puzzle out on the table in the rec room where they all put our extra laptops so they can play video games (only while waiting for or just after supper) so I had to get it finished – which I did tonight. Which reminds me to tell you that next week will be hit and miss with postings – and likely more misses than hits. We are not going away but will be busy with the boys.


Last night I hung the clothes on the clothesline even though there was a chance of rain…we were hoping it would miss us.....they were well rinsed this morning and almost dry after lunch when they were rinsed again – they have now been rinsed five times and we are not finished yet. We have been under severe thunderstorm and tornado watch since this afternoon and have had a couple thunderstorm cells pass through – and a possible tornado caused a lot of trouble in one area south east of us. It’s that time of the year!

Today’s card is a bit busy but a young girl or teen girl will love it.

I started out with a piece of white cardstock and stamped the Stamping Bella stamp with Archival ink. It was coloured with pencils; blended with gamsol. Mustard Seed Distress ink was sponged around her and Broken Chine Distress ink sponged lightly out to the edges. Then I covered up the image; wet a brush; picked up some water colour paint and splattered. Then sequins were glued on. The sentiment is from another stamp set but I really thought it suited this card. I stamped it; cut it out and glued it on with dimensional strips. The panel was then glued to a blue card base. The background ended up a bit wild but that's okay. Its a fun card.

That’s all for a wet and thunderstormy Friday August 11th 2017.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
