Sorry I haven't been blogging this week, I have tonsillitis so just haven't been able to sit at the computer for more than a few minutes because my head is really sore and my vision goes all blurry. I am feeling a little better today though. My head and joints are not so sore although my throat is still in agony and I can hardly swallow.
Anyway I thought since I was fellling a little better, I would post my card that I made the other day for The Sugar Bowl. As always there is a fab sketch which is from Judy this time and the "please include" this week is Thankfulness.
So here's what I came up with.
I coloured Daisy with Copics as usual, the papers are a mix of Cosmo Cricket, K&Co and I'm not sure about the orange bit and the base paper. The woman at the craft shop told me they were Magenta but I think they may be K&Co, anybody know? Both pieces are actually from the same sheet, the orange is the reverse.
I normally try to use papers from the same collection or at least the same make but most of these bits were scraps so I didn't have enough from one collection to make a whole card so I had to mix and match. I think they all look ok together though?
I distressed all the edges with my scissors, then inked them with dried marigold distress ink, except the images and the nestie square which I just inked. I don't actually have that nesties but Heather sent me some cut out ones in white which I really wanted to use but I didn't want to use white, so I just drew round it and cut it out from dp. I did the same with the circle for the image as I don't have anything to cut out circles that size. I'm quite impressed with myself because they don't look too wonky for being hand cut lol.
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, K&Co and ??
Image: Sugar Nellies Daisy. Sentiment: SU! Oval All
Embelies: Flowers are Prima and Tabby Crafts (I inked a white one from Tabby crafts to match), spacers, pin which you can hardly see because it is clear, and lace are all from my stash
Tools: Su! scalloped oval punch, Copic markers
Well hopefully I will be able to visit some of you today, headache permitting!! I have really missed my daily bloghopping and can't wait to see what you have all been up to.
If anyone has a magic wand they could wave to make me feel better, then please feel free to wave it in my direction :)
Thanks for stopping by.
