Good evening all, I'm a little bit late with this weeks post as we've had a very hectic weekend. It started with a lovely Thai meal out with my NCT girl friends Friday night. Breakfast on Saturday with my Dad and Uncle, followed by a girly shopping trip with my Mother in law and Sister in law, then out to my amazing friend and up-line's wedding party Saturday night. Then Sunday we went to view the photos from a photo shoot we'd had done of the four of us a little while ago and then back to Dad's for Sunday lunch. It was nice to go back to work today for a rest!
Somehow while doing all of that I managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting! Pickle even decided to give me a hand with the cutting!
Today's card was inspired by the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge which this week was a colour challenge. I have to admit, Night of Navy is one of my favourites but the other two I very rarely touch. It's nice to get out of my comfort zone every so often and use colours that aren't my first choice.
I was quite tired while making this card so I made a couple of mistakes, one of which actually turned out to be a happy accident. I'd taken out my eclectic layers dies and thought it would be nice to use the leaves die so you could see the layer of lemon lime twist card through the white card stock. So I happily rolled it through my big shot expecting it to create a lovely cut through piece. Only problem was I'd used the die that embosses not cuts....whoops! I had already wasted several bits of card stock, as I had a real problem reading measurements while making this one, I decided I wasn't going to throw it away. I grabbed my aqua brush instead and just painted over the leaves. I hope you'll agree that it turned out quite nicely!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week and I'll be back next week.
