So crafting time has been a little thin on the ground this week – sad, but true.
Fun stuff that I have been doing though includes:
another zumba class…
fruit picking (yummy apples and plums – all on an impulsive whim, after zumba night. I was walking home with a pal and we decided to go for it and fill our bags before the goodness all gets snaffled by some other fruit-picking passers-by!)….
tidying up and purging of the craft zone (phew – that feels good! This week I will be sharing pics of some the fruits of this labour…)
But back to the crafting schedule, that is what you stopped by for, right?
A new sketch for today!
And I was inspired by the latest colour palette over at CR84FN #35:
Here’s my card:
I pulled this one together with some scraps – that had been trying to overtake my crafty zone. Hence the clear-up is a work-in-progress
The scraps of patterned paper are by DCWV and My Mind’s Eye, and the border strip at the bottom is some scrunched vellum layered with a Jiilibean Soap border.
I stamped and heat embossed the label from Waltzing Mouse Stamps ‘Rescue Remedies’, dabbing off a little of the ink first to help with the antiquing look. It didn’t work quite as well as hoped except for the ‘Pow..’ of ‘Powders’
Will need to experiment with this a bit more methinks.
It’s die-cut with coordinating Nesties ‘Labels 4′.
The grey touch in the colour inspiration is a nice neutral and with the soft pearlescent vellum, grey-toned paper band and silver butterfly embellishment I think it works.
Have a good day folks, thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Rx
