Hi folks, it's Friday again, this week has flown by! My Daughter is safely back in the UK, but her ankle is in plaster for the next five weeks at least. She has a lovely purple plaster cast- a girl after my own heart! We have been backwards and forwards to the Hospital a lot this week, and need to go again next week for another x-ray. Hopefully then she can settle down a bit, and concentrate on letting the ankle heal. I'm off to pick a wheelchair up for her tomorrow, as she can't walk on it for several weeks. Who would have thought a trip to Disneyland could be so dangerous?
Anyway, onto my project for this week. I have chosen to use a background stamp from Hero Arts, 'Italian Poetry Background', as the starting point for my card. I am very fond of Italy, as those of you who know me will know. I coloured my card with Versamagic chalk inks, that were already laying on my craft desk. I used a lovely mask from Tattered Angels down the left hand side. I then added an as yet unused stamp from Stamp Camp of a scene from Venice. The chalk inks give a very dreamy, watery quality to the picture. The final touch was to add a lovely flourish from Chocolate Baroque in the corner, almost like a watermark.
Don't forget to have a rummage through your stash, to see what you have that is forgotten or neglected. Make something with it, and add a link in my comments. I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, Judith xx
