Let's start with the card ... a clean and simple card created using scraps of card that I previously coloured using the shaving foam technique along with a bit of stamping.
I've made the card for this week's "Less is More" challenge - it is recipe week and the main ingredient is Snippets (I have a whole box of bits that need using so this is an ideal challenge!). It is Chrissie's (owner of the challenge) birthday week so this card is also to celebrate the occasion.
I'm also going to enter the challenge at Addicted to Stamps where the theme is Clean and Simple.
I mentioned earlier that I had a new piece of equipment ... in fact I have two new major pieces of equipment. You see it was my birthday last Friday and my son and daughter gave me some new crafting kit.
My son made me a printing press ...
My daughter gave me a gelli plate! I've wanted one for months but just couldn't justify buying myself one so it was really exciting to be given one as a gift. So I've had the paints and stencils out today to have a play - these are my first two prints>
I clearly need to practise! Hopefully I will be able top create some nice background papers and maybe even a work of art!!!
