Gotta love long weekends. Saturday was taken up with not one but two exams. Eep. My brain was dead by the time I got home and bed called early. Sunday was taken up with the traditional Labour weekend Kiwi pass time - yes gardening. The garden beds were topped up with extra compost and potting mix, new tyres laid down for more corn and a number of plantings made. Tons of sweetcorn, two tomato plants to start the season, some snow peas, a cucumber plant and some lettuces went in. Will be adding to it frequently over the coming weeks with plans to plant a lot of extra tomatoes.
Today though I got to play, not only with my new tree trimmings stamps but also my fellow crafter Ali's big shot. I wasn't overly inspired and just ended up playing around a bit.
The card here actually started out stamped on the top note die using tree trimmings on the chocolate chip paper in white craft ink and highlighted with dazzling diamonds.
I decided I didn't like it once it was all assembled so carefully disassembled and cut all the trimmings out, added some ribbon and was fairly happy with the result. Along the top I used the versamark and the decor wheel. To lift the brown and the vanilla I used a piece of retired brights cardstock.
I really wanted to enter the just add ink challenge but found getting inspired difficult so just wanted to warm up so to speak. I have an idea brewing, Im about to sit down and see if I can't come up with something. Watch this space.......
