I can't believe where the last week has gone! It's back to work tomorrow (groan) and it only feels like two minutes since I was there. Do you think they would understand if I phoned in tomorrow and said I needed another week? No? Nah, me neither. Sigh.
As the reaction to my first entry in this week's LILI OF THE VALLEY blue and pink challenge was, shall we say, restrained, I thought I'd have another go and see if this one goes down a bit better ......
This time I've used Emma Pot Plant and she is, of course, painted in Distress Inks
Papers are My Minds Eye, I think it was a free pack with a magazine and it's Spring themed. Gorgeous, wish I'd got a second one!
Felt quite pleased with myself for managing to curve the Hero Arts sentiment to fit the edge of the circle. I used the waste from the Nestie, stuck it with tape to an acrylic block and that gave me the border to line up my sentiment with, took away the card, inked the stamp, took a deep breath and there it is.
Also tried the faux doilly edging for the first time today - don't think the result is too bad but I need to work out what to do with the ends to get them a bit neater.
Matting layer is simply white cardstock coloured with a Ruby ProMarker - I was trying to get it to tie in with the colour of the roses.
Here's the arty shot complete with cat hair (you can tell I don't dust often in the conservatory)
And the inside (again using the MME papers and a Hero Arts sentinment)
And just in case you aren't completely bored already, here's a close up on Emma and her pot plant
Thanks for visiting.
