We've had a good layer of snow today. Grandson, who I was entertaining for the day was delighted. Fortunately he didn't suggest we go out and play in it, so saved me thinking of an excuse.
I was hoping it would be gone in the morning but it is still snowing. Darn it!!!! I thought we'd seen the last of this white stuff.
Crafty Ann's challenge 8 - If music be the food of love
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 37
About this card....I had a play with my one and only Distress Ink, Tattered Rose, although it looks more like orangy peach to me. As I haven't got any of the blending stuff, I spritzed it with Isopropyl Alcohol and sprinkled on some gold embossing powder to liven it up. As it actually looks quite nice (although it doesn't show too well in the pic) I was detemined to use it for this project.
I stamped the lilac BP with butterflies embossed with clear EP.
The music is a Penny Black stamp and embossed with gold EP. Same for the 'Love' tag.
I am not really happy with this card though. It doesn't look balanced to me...I can't fault the sketch, it is lovely...I think it is because I used a landscape shape rather than the square. I will probably add something to the bottom left...maybe a punched butterfly or 3 gems.
Can you see the shiny gold ?
Thank you for stopping by :-)
