I hope the snow is starting to clear where you are..the only 'plus point' has been that usually on a Saturday we are out somewhere, whether it's local or meeting friends, but this week there really wasn't anywhere to go, so I got to craft whilst Tom quite happily kept the hens company clearing snow in the garden! Bliss - my perfect Saturday!
You may remember me telling you that I could not resist buying one of the new clock kits from Indigo Blu...well it arrived during the week! I excitedly primed it with Gesso and paint straightaway, then yesterday I set about finishing it ...check out my post tomorrow for the full update and photos...all I can say is, wow was it fun!
Today's card is very similar to one I made for one of our classes last year...
It's made using a Wheatsheaf stamp from Woodware: I stamped the image three times on one piece A5 of linen card and once on a smaller piece of card, using versamark ink. I then inked it all over using Broken China distress ink to create a resist image.
I covered an A5 card blank with blue card and matted and layered the stamped sheet on top, then I did the same with the smaller rectangle and the sentiment rectangle.The sentiment stamp is a Sam Poole stamp. I finished off with some bakers twine and ribbon.
The reason I am revisiting this card is because Amy and I are going to do a one of workshop for a local craft group this Tuesday and we chose this card from our regular workshops to take along for them to make.
Before I go, a few last snow hen photos...
|It was actually Lacey, our Speckledy, who ventured out first, followed by Penny|

|They were very pleased when Tom cleared the snow from the lawn for them!|
