Today I have been a busy bee...making my swap cards for the SOS swap I am taking part in. The idea is to use only things from the current IBC that are NOT retiring, and this is my card:
As I only had to make five of these cards I decided to add lots of layers and fiddly stuff. I am very happy with they way they turned out.
Here is the full list of ingredients:
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Basic Brown, Close to Cocoa and Pretty in Pink Classic Inks
Stamps: A Good Egg
Accessories: Crimper, Stampin' Sponges, Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Choclolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Watercolour Paper, Crystal Effects, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, SNAIL and Sticky Strip.
I made a second card in the same theme, but in a large, square layout, and this is how it turned out:
Also, I mentioned to you last week that we were going to the Canberra Show, and that I'd grab a shot of one of my favourite bovine friends for you. Et volia, Belted Galloway, or Humbug Cow ;-)...isn't she cute?
I have also been meaning to show you one of my first attempts at jewellery making:
The focal beads are hand made, glass beads, made by Melissa Rediger. The rest of the bracelet comprises Sterling silver bali beads and Swarovski crystals. I had so much fun making this bracelet, there will definitely be more ;-). I call it my 'Fiesta' bracelet because it is so bright and happy. I can't stop looking at it when it is on my wrist (and yes, I have walked into stuff because of this ;-)!
Thanks for dropping by!
