Sunny days

 Hooray...it looks like the rain has gone for a while. I was not enjoying Maypril at all!! 

I have been trying to make more use of my vast stash so today got out my coloured inks.Amazingly they were still juicy despite not being used for quite some time and this is what I made...


 ...I started off by gathering all my yellow, gold and orange inks and literally just used a blender pad for each colour and rubbed away on to some sturdy card. That done I found some shimmer powder in a golden tone, put it in a bottle with some water and sprayed and then dabbed with some loo roll!! The meadow stamp and the birds were freebies with a magazine and the lovely Bee Crafty Beau-tanicals stamp on the right hand side was the prize from a win at Allsorts, where I shall be taking this card to support their current 12th Birthday challenge. A lovely crafty friend gifted me the Whimsy "Birthday" and I teamed it with an old Craftwork Cards "Happy". I shocked myself with the speed at which this all came together, once dry, and will definitely be getting inky again!! A non-cute card for the stock box...and that is not a sentence I type often!!

Thank you for your continued visits and kind words, it is much appreciated.

Your meadow silhouette landscape looks fab Sarah. The grass is finally romping away here and I've had to cut a swathe across the drive field so that walkers can see where to go since Al moved the stile! It also means that Max and I can use it too! :)

Now that is one very smart card, love the colour combo, and style.

Nice to experiment with different to 'normal' every so often isn't it! One of the things I most enjoyed about crafting, kicking back and trying something different.
