Well, we had our trip to Ikea yesterday, but didn't buy much - I don't know what's wrong with me! I need to go craft shopping, I never have any trouble spending money then! Lol.
On to today's crafty news - it's time for our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our leader, Caz has chosen the theme of 'GARDENING'. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...
Now, I think this is a great theme for a male card, but then realised that I didn't have anything 'garden' related! After searching through my stash I discovered (or re-discovered) a set of tiny 'Art Impressions' stamps that I bought years ago - they are all tiny individual stamps that you create a scene with. Luckily the ones I have relate to gardens!
So, the main panel has a pc generated sentiment - then I went to work with my little stamps and masks. The image consists of just two stamps - the watering can and the little plant pot, which have been masked to create the design and then coloured with my Promarkers. The little bird is stamped in black ink sitting on top of the stack of plant pots.
The whole thing is layered onto paper from my LOTV 'Country Gent' pad and I added three little co-ordinating buttons as embellishment.
