Hi everyone, and for those in the UK hope you are not too badly affected by the snow. We've got a good few inches here and it's been at it again this morning. Right in the middle of the country we've got the snow from the west, more from the east, and the distinct possibility of even more tomorrow! The dog is loving it of course, but then she's got a 20 tog duvet coat and webbed feet!!! And now for today's offering...
For those who joined me on Wednesday you will have seen some of the elements of this card on my workdesk. Although I knew the colours in this beautiful Japanese Gardens image from Nicecrane Designs matched perfectly with the last of my 'Tammy Tutterow' backgrounds the tricky bit was working out how to combine them. And so I dug deep into my memory banks and hit upon using a swivelling panel.
Using Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder on the corners and along the edges of the image I layered it with co-ordinating cardstock befofre mounting it on the central panel.
I used Tim Holtz' shattered stains technique on the grungeboard letters with DS Tarnished Brass.
The butterfly was stamped onto antique gold card and white vellum using Coffee Archival Ink and some of the edges were painted with DI Victorian Velvet/Pumice Stone to match the background.
I think it must be something to do with the cold that my head is taking forever to work out what to do at the moment - is this what people mean by 'brain-freeze'? So with the cards for this month done (one left to put on the blog) I'm gonna take it easier this afternoon with a few ATC's. Might try putting the electric heater on and hugging a nice hot chocolate too:) Wherever you are hope you have a great weekend. Hugs, Jenny x
