So the hall floor went from thisto thisyesterday. (Hmmm must wash that door down)
and while that happened I camped out in the conservatory, did some stash sorting, a sermon and a few cards - just cos!
The first is my version of the card Sue made for Daring Cardmakers. Actually the proportions work better on hers I think! Do love the WRMK nonsense line though.the second is because someone was becoming a member of our church today through transfer of membership so I wanted a welcome card. The black (ish) paper frill started out grey but I wanted a black one. I considered using a sharpie pen but went for chalk ink instead. Bad, bad, bad idea.
- that is the third white paper frill section. I nearly binned the card in frustration. why?
- it was very hard to get them to stick to the ink
- and then I got black on my fingers and covered the white with black
- so on the third attempt I decided to do the glitter and glue routine ... only it stuck to the still wet chalk ink and so I ended up with that part of the card looking... grey.
maybe I'll write "sorry you are feeling pear shaped" inside...
the letters are Making Memories. They are my favourite craft item ever.
The latter two cards had to have something laid over the whole front because I ruined two cards by putting chalk ink as an edging for another piece of paper on a card and leaving ink stains all over the place when I had to move said paper as the placing was wrong. I think I am going to have to lock that black chalk ink away. I'm not safe with it!
