It made a really nice change yesterday to cast the calculator and Exel and Sage to one side and go off in the sunshine to a lovely garden centre about an hour's drive away,how lovely are these flower towers?
I bet they take some watering and dead heading!
These are in the middle of the driveway into the garden centre - you can't really see how tall they are but they dwarf the cars!
We had a morning of making three cards using various ink techniques.I really enjoyed it for a change..
First up we used glossy card and versamark,stamps and distress ink to create a resist effect. I need to do a bit of finishing off with these,just inking round the edges and maybe a sentiment i think.
Then we went on to make a tag with distress stains and inks ,lots of spritzing,stamping and acetate butterflies..we got really messy with this one !
and the last one was stamped onto little squares and then coloured with promarkers then we took the design apart and put the squares back together onto a piece of card.
I really enjoyed the colouring in - does you good to do something completely different sometimes doesn't it ? I forgot how much I enjoy stamping and making cards..
Then after such hard work all morning we felt we had to go and try out the cakes and have a cup of tea
Tough job - but someone has to try them ...
I went for the coffee and walnut - my fave..
and now - I'm off for a morning of Pergamano - get me !!
