Well woke up this morning to another dreary sludgy grey day. The only way you can tell it's morning is it's a lighter shade of grey! I think this afternoon will be a curl up on the sofa and snooze kind of afternoon with lots of tea.
So in order to bring some colour into my day I quickly made this in between having breakfast, having a bath and putting some washing on (I'm a woman, I multi task!)
Started with some white card and misted Mustard Seed Glimmer Mist over a flower stencil. I'm really loving this messy splodged look at the moment, bit Jackson Pollock but less spots and splatters (lordly that's a lot of alliteration, obviously been listening to too much Radio 4)!
Next added a messy oblong of Pumpkin Soup Fresco paint with some Butternut over the top through a diamond stencil. A script stamp over that in Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
On the left of the page I stamped a new stamp got in the LB Crafts sale (sniff sniff) again in Scattered Straw.
Added a strip of yellow / orangey spotty paper edged in Spiced Marmalade and stamped the Grecian stamp in Spiced Marmalade. The photo is one of mine I think taken yonks ago at the Eden Project.
Distressed the edge of the white card and layered onto some Tulip yellow co-ordinations cardstock.
It is really quite zingy and sunshiny, so rather than put straight in the 8x8 album I think I shall display on my notice board in the craft room (I shall have to clear the noticeboard first but we are on a clear up chuck out operation at the moment so it was on the list!)
Have fun wherever you are and I hope you see a glimmer (or more) of sunshine.
