Hello how are you? I am so sorry to have to do this nearly a week later but as I said in my previous post I was totally wiped out last week with a nasty cold and keeping my eyes open was a struggle never mind blogging. It was Jo's Happy Birthday on the 3rd. Now Jo is one of the sweetest and kindest girls I have ever met, she is so helpful to me and our team members and nothing is too much trouble, she has a heart of gold that girl. I have made her this card
Melon mambo card base and Soft Suede, now I tried the grid technique which I haven't tried for ages, it is very easy to do if you have one of these fancy score boards with lots of grooves in but equally easy to just use your Fiskars trimmer with the scoring blade. Simply score a pattern at equal intervals in two directions. I have used a sponge dauber and soft suede ink to add some definition and what you cannot see is the fabulous shimmer paint applied to this layer, very pretty. I love this stamp set Circle Circus and I have used it quite a lot recently . I got the idea of the different circles in different colours from a few cards in the gallery at Splitcoast stampers, Melon Mambo, tempting turquoise, summer sun, rich razzleberry and soft suede. Some circles have matted layers and are raised on dimensionals. I was very pleased with this card . Jo I hope you had a fabulous birthday and I am sorry I am a bit late in announcing it on here.
After making this card a light bulb moment went off and decided to make some bookmarks for my Virtual club members. Perfect for the Summer holidays coming I thought although I cannot tell you how much time they took me!!! I made 50 of them gulp.
