I hope you all had good weekends! We had a lovely day on Saturday once the storm had cleared in the afternoon: lunch in Bristol, a wander round the Harbour Festival, off to see the Rat Pack and out just in time to watch the fabulous Festival Firework display from the roof of the car park - wonderful view!
The Rat Pack was a very enjoyable evening, but whilst the 'cast' had superb voices, with the exception of the guy playing Sammy Davis, who was superb, they didn't really 'get into character' as they have done when we have seen this type of show previously. Still it was a packed house and such a mixture of ages in the audience, including some very young people, which was nice. My Mum was a big Sinatra fan (she saw his concert in Bristol in the 50's), Dad preferred Dino, so I grew up listening to the Rat Pack and always liked it(I may not have admitted that until much later in life though!)...when I think of the totally eclectic music tasted I 'inflicted' on them!!! Really, I had and still have so many musical likes it's quite confusing!!!
Anyway, yesterday I woke up with an attack of Prickly Heat, so boy was I suffering with that yesterday...I just had to keep the skin cool and moisturised all day and it's not anywhere as near as bad today...it was all over my arms, throat, back.... I have only ever had it about three times and never as bad..horrible!
Now to today's card, which I made for one of our friends who loves fishing...
The Fisherman and background stamps are by Woodware. I stamped the background stamp using Versafine ink on to green card and then heat embossed with clear powder, just to make a 'raised background paper, which I matted and layered on to a kraft card blank. Sorry it doesn't show up so well in the photo.
Then I stamped the background again on to white card, using Versafine Sepia ink. I stamped the fisherman and greeting over this using Versafine black ink, then I inked the edges slightly using Vintage Photo distress ink. I matted and layered on to green card and kraft card.
I finished off with a piece of string tied in a bow and topped it with a litre fish, which was one of the off cuts from the images I had stamped - I coated it with glossy accents to finish.
This above photos shows the inside of the card...I love tent fold cards, but they are so hard to photograph inside! I stamped the background again and but a strip to fit across the centre of the card. I stamped the greeting, which comes with the fisherman set and matted and layered on to kraft card.
Just a simple card for a guy!
Thank you so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits and comments..tomorrow is Tuesday so I will be back with another DT post for Sam Poole.
