Hello. Welcome. I have been a little preoccupied with one of my hens today, who is hatching chicks as I write. Very exciting. I have seen one tiny little head, and heard peeping, but it's a bit like a sneak peek. Have to wait for the full reveal. Must be patient. Very difficult. But don't want mother hen to stand too soon. Got to give them all the best chance to hatch. Will keep you posted.
So this is what I fitted in today amid the excitement. I started the background for the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers where they want die-cut designs. I used Spellbinders Gold Circle 1 die set. All of it. First time I've used this so wasn't sure what I was going to get. Some of the dies cut and some just emboss. So just to see I used all at once and ended up with a lovely detailed doily cut from one of my brusho backgrounds.
So I have the pretty doily and I added Kadoodle Pirate Dan. He is coloured with Promarkers and watercolour. I stamped DRS Script Happy Birthday and black embossed.
On my purple base card I stamped DRS Interlocking Squares and embossed with dark green powder. I cut Cheery Lynn Compass and placed behind the doily. The corners are Cheery Lynn Mini Rum Punch doily cut in 4. It seemed a bit unfinished so I tried this....
I smudged the edge of the card with Versamark and embossed with Wintergreen Pastel embossing powder. I've had this so long and hardly used it. I was afraid it might be dead, but it melted just fine. Must use these bright colours on darks more often.
