Hello bloggers. I have been computerless as the harddrive died in my laptop. I was in such a panic as I hadn't backed up for a while - I know, that's a cardinal sin and working for a software house I should know better! Anyway, our fab engineer has manged to recover all my pics, files, etc phew! Problem is now I have to reinstall all my programmes, settings, connections and check up on licenses what a pain!
Right this week our challenge at Anything Goes is Anything but Square - easy peasy.
My contribution is a card I made for my stepson's birthday using IndigoBlu stamps from the Craft Den.
The ships compass from the Grand Tour set was used for the background and stamped with versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The main image was done using DIs to colour the sky and ground and I sprayed the cloud stamp from Nature 1 with water, stamped it on the sky and blotted with kitchen paper. Cool technique this to get more realistic looking clouds. The balloon is also from the Grand Tour 3 collection and this was stamped and embossed then the ballon was coloured with chipped sapphire. I used torn paper and a blending tool then the trees stamp to create the hedging. The chap with the binoculars is the IndigoBlu stamp 'I spy' which I stamped, embossed, coloured with chipped sapphire, cut out and sat him on top of the main image. The card was finished with the suitcase decoupaged and a metal compass embellishment.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
