Hiya, what a scorcher of a week it's been. Hope you've all managed to stay cool and enjoyed your weekends (let's not mention the dismal football results!). Mine was spent working as usual but I did manage to have a little play with this cute LOTV image which has been sitting on my desk for an age. I thought I'd play along to the LOTV challenge for a change but I'm not very happy with the result - I was going for an aged look but that pink piece and the circle die I used doesn't look right and it all looks a bit amateurish to me but it's all stuck down now - oh well!
At least I got to use my bargain cuttlebug hearts embossing folder which was nearly half price over at 'crafts U love'. I've been hankering after one for a while now (it an old duo combo set which I never got as I thought it was dots when it first came out and I already had a dot folder so never gave it a second look until I saw Debby use it and realised it was cute little embossed hearts but by then it was low down on my 'wishlist' due to the price but when I saw it reduced, how could I resist?!) The die cut 'hugs & kisses' phrase is also part of the set. I've stamped some flowers and hearts on the green card behind the image as it looked a bit plain and then I've edged all the papers with white ink.
The more I look at this, the more I don't like it (my card that is, not the image - I love the image!) so we'll just leave it at that I think and move on! I've also not used my copics for this image, it was watercoloured with distress inks.
That's all for now, I'm half way through making another card at the moment so hopefully that one will turn out better. Until next time,
