God kveld Nomad friends. Welcome, welcome to another exciting chapter of No Madness. You know, or maybe you don't, but 2013 has been a little difficult so far. Hopefully now the Snake has arrived we can expect better things. They say you will never be hungry with a Snake in the house, so we can at least expect lots of cake. Other good things as well, but definitely cake.
Today I needed to rustle up a card for my brother. Needless to say, this isn't it. The need to create did shift a few stuck cogs. I now have a couple of things finished that I had started and ground to a halt with. Since I don't need to share it all in one go that will give me some breathing room. Today I want to unveil the 'Double Duck'........
Yes, I know, hot air balloons are supposed to be pretty colours, but the Joanna Sheen challenge is black and white, and since these brand new create a scene dies from Docrafts have just come into my possession I felt a monocrome attempt was worth a go. Not bad, not bad. Actually this was quite fun because once I had pieced my balloon from various cards and papers I started thinking about the background. I decided to emboss and then colour with an ink pad. Since white ink appears to be difficult to get hold of it's white card with a swipe of Memento Tuxedo Black. I embossed using Spellbinders Sea Beauty m-bossibilities folder. Shells in the sky, why not??. The hemp texture card I embossed warped a bit so I cut the panel out and mounted it on some chipboard to give the card a bit more dimension. This is so not obvious from the photograph. Ah, the joys of photogiraffing.
I thought it needed a bit of bling. My stash is a bit short on the all white but I did find a sheet of assorted snowflake stickers. Perfecto. I always think of black and white as winter colours, as snow always makes such a contrast with everything, so a few snowflakes fit. So that makes it Flight of the Snow Duck Duck. A couple of birds in the sky, a couple of tiny duck stickers on the flag, some computer generated words with some doodles to finish and it's all ready to send and wish someone, and everyone, a very happy day.
