I have been busy sorting out my background papers and storing them on the unit that Graham has made for me. It's suprising how many of them I have. I went through a stage (as all crafters do) where I had to buy 2 sheets of the same paper - 1 to use and 1 to admire. The problem was that I always ended up admiring more than 2. I have actually discovered 14 sheets of the same paper (but, it is nice).
Whilst sorting out my craft room, I have been trying to find a way of storing my cards that are not needed at the moment. Things like Christmas cards that won't be needed for another 11 months are being stored in a box under my work desk and are now getting in my way. So I have decided to add a Bargain Bucket in my Etsy shop and pop in any cards that are not needed at the moment. Have a look....you just might want to grab yourself a bargain. Items will be added on a regular basis and I combine potage on multiple purchases too.
Here is today's card :-]
Yes...it's another one of those gorgeous LOTV images. It is soooooo cute and shows how innocent life used to be when we were young. It reminds me of my first boyfriend when I was in primary school when we used to sit in the park and pick the daisies from the grass to give to each other. Not that I would ever have looked that neat and tidy. I was more a ripped jeans and t.shirt kind of gal. Ahhhhh! the memories.
The image has been coloured using my copics pens and layered up using several different matts of card and paper from my scrap drawers. The larger butterfly is my latest plaything. It is a paper punch and embossing set. I think that the effect that the embossing has on the butterfly wings is so delicate and perfect.
