Today I am hoping that this cold weather will go, so I can try to mow the lawn, but it seems we are stuck with it till after Easter - but at least, here in Bristol, no snow! Small mercies!
So, here is my entry for the IndigoBlu Challenge no 2, Words and phrases. I love the Alice stamps, I have both sets, and regularly use the phrase Curiouser and curiouser at work - it seems to fit so many occasions and situations, at least on the projects on which I work!!
I started my using Distress inks to make a background, and used the larger watch face over the top, 2nd generation stamping, along with curiouser and curiouser. Also the crackle stamp from Alice is on there, hand stamped.
Then I stamped on another piece of card the mad hatter, and used my water brush to pull the vintage photo ink out across the stamp. There is just a touch of glossy accents on the 10/6 ticket in his hat!
Put it all together with some american crafts twine, and matted and layered with some black and sunshine yellow/orange card from my stash. The finished piece would go on an 8 x 8 card.
Hope you like it! Think it would make a good card for a 'whoops, sorry I forgot your birthday' card!
