Hi crafters. I have just made my first card in the new loft space. We've had company today so I have only had a short time in there. I stamped the panel with white embossing powder, then used sponges to add colour from a Kaleidacolour ink pad. I took some colour out with bleach and painted in the leaves with the same ink pad. I used my Nesties to make the circles and Stampin' Up punches to make the oval shapes. I also made the two dots using a very small punch and indenting them from the wrong side to make the little button shapes. The black card is the Black Magic paper with a green core. I used a Crafts Too folder then used sand paper to let the green core show through.
Of course I couldn't find anything! When I tidy up, and put everything away in a box, I lose everything I need. Here are a couple of photos showing my new surroundings. I'm like that mad woman locked in the turret in Jane Eyre - Bertha Rochester! I am getting a list together of improvements I need, such as more light over to the left of the desk and possibly more shelving. And somewhere to place the kettle.
My sister in law bought me a lovely climbing plant to remind me of Taffy and tomorrow I'm off to buy a rose as a gift from our friend Joyce, to remind us of Taffy. How could I forget my little boy? I keep stepping over where he used to lie. Ah well. It's good to be back at it!!
