When Life Gets Prickly….

Hi there. I’ve been sorting out my craft room, and once I had a nice and clean desk – then I just had to craft, didn’t I? And – I tidied everything up afterwards! I don’t think this will last, but at least I’ll try.

Here is my card:

As I was tidying some of my stuff, I put new stamps and dies in a box so I could play with them. This is one of the stamp and die sets that has just been sitting around getting all lonesome…..

I started by using some Crafters Companion Neenah desert Storm card stock, and stamped the Concord and 9th ‘Stuck On You‘ cactus in a light green, then kinda rocked a darker green over the stamp and stamped again, to get two colours of green.

I then stamped the plantar in Versafine Clare brown, and the little hearts which I placed in a row, and the notice board.

I die cut the images – except the notice board which I had to cut out by hand – and attached everything to a darker brown card base as you see.

A complete contrast to my very, very pink card yesterday………..
