Hi, we've just come home from the cinema, We went and saw "War Horse" It was interesting but lots of deaths both human and animal depicted. I prefer a comedy or mystery more.
I went to Saturday craft and helped the girls to make a square tissue cover box to slip over the shop bought ones. We used the cuttlebug to do some cutting and embossing and everyone's looked different. Helen used chalk sponged over the embossing and decorated the top with some flower beads and some pearls and a border sticker around the top outside edge. I went for a bit more manly style and used Sahara Sand cardstock and a embossing template with clocks and cogs on. I distressed it with Choc Chip ink and may put some buttons or something on the top to embellish it. Another lady used autumny toned chalks on her basic white box and Judy made one from red card and distressed the edges with ink as well. When I get a photo, I will share the two I made.
Well, LOL, I better get a move on and share this card so I can get some sleep tonight!
I used SU Cherry Cobbler as my basecard and then used two bits of left over scraps of DP so not sure who made them. The image is a freebie digi and if I find the name, will add it later. I coloured it with Copic Markers and cut it out and mounted onto a topnote diecut in SU Certainly Celery which I trimmed back and distressed then also ink distressed using Tim Holtz distressing inks, Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo. The second diecut was using a coffee coloured card called Kula Cream. I also used this to print the computer generated greeting as I didn't have anything suitable and distressed with the inks and mounted onto another punched circle in Certainly Celery.
