Surfing Dog….

Hi there. I’ve been struggling to get my crafty head on – after the Altenew day last weekend, working, and also having the builders in doing two bathrooms – it’s been a bit difficult to sit and craft. I just didn’t seem to have enough ideas – I played with stuff, but making a complete card escaped me for a few days.

I managed to start one yesterday, and completed an actual card this morning – in the middle of all the banging, and sanding – I sat there with my headphones on listening to some music to try and drown things out. (I may have been helped by Justin Timberlake and Neil Diamond………!) 🙂

Here is the card:

I first stamped, coloured, and then die cut several of the images from Simon says Stamp ‘Chillin’ Frenchies’. You can see which one I went for……….

The background took a little more thinking about…….

I used the Waffle Flower ‘Cloudscape’ panel die and cut it out of a light blue card-stock, then added a couple of colours of Distress Oxides to the edges, blending a little – but actually not much. Using a blue card-stock to begin with made that a little easier. You can see the original blue card in the gaps between the layer elements, which I separated, just to add more interest and dimension. I do like to play with die-cuts sometimes…..

The other background squares were cut using Sue Wilson ‘Noble Stitched Squares’.
