Good afternoon and how are you today?
Sunshine and showers here in the north of Scotland, it was beautiful first thing so I put a dress on, now it looks like it is going to bucket down. A typical Scottish summers day, mack and sandals!
Today was my youngest lads last day at Primary school and we are just back from them all dooking in the sea, in uniform. It is standard procedure for the leaving year of the school to attach their school tie to the lamp post outside the building and then head to the harbour to jump in the sea. Brrrr!
He certainly seems to have had a super day.
Last night I got to have a wee play after finishing the last of my card orders so I decided to join the lovely gang over at the Less is More challenge blog.
This week's challenge is to use a stencil but to keep plenty of white space.
I have used a butterfly stencil by Heidi Swapp together with distress inks Twisted citron, Peacock feathers and Salty ocean. I then stamped over the butterflies, with the stencil still in place using SU white ink and a script stamp from Stampers Anonymous Attic treasures. I have added a bit of bling for the butterfly bodies and a few sequins to finish. The sentiment is by Hero arts "Cheer up".
I did toy with using my scalpel blade to lift the wings but as the challenge is LIS I have stepped away from the card!
That's all from me today, I'm out for another treatment tonight and then getting my nails done tomorrow. I don't know what is happening to me, I seem to be going all girlie!
Enjoy your evening and more craftiness tomorrow.
