Hi thereHope you' re all having a lovely weekend . I had a lovely day yesterday as I was able to go along to a Strawberry tea' that my fab Friend Lindsey had arranged to raise money for Breast Cancer . Lindsey asked us all to take along something Pink n delicious so naturally I took myself hahahaha who am I kidding - no of course she meant food n drink so there was a vast array of tasty delights to savour , a raffle and donations and a good old chinwag . Lindsey raised £87 on the day with still more to come so it was a good day all round .
Lindsey is a keen photographer in between all her other gazillion activities and responsibilities and has recently set up a blog and a facebook page so if ya fancy visiting or liking I'm sure she'd appreciate .
This week saw me make a card for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge- 'I scream' .
The challenge wanted us to be inspired by the letter 'I' and after an initial 'mmmm not too sure what to do for this ' it soon became clear as - the letter 'I' would inspire me to make a card using Inks with the focal Image being Eyes (I).
So here's what I created
Of the many eye stamps I have (yep I love them) I chose to use one of Wendy Vecchi's from the Stamp set 'An Eye for Art' - quite an apt choice as the very talented lady is in London right now for her 7 day Make Art in England Tour. I stamped this using Black Archival Ink and created more interest by cutting away the corners of the card to create the shape you see ( not sure what it would be called - answers on a postcard please lol ) I distressed the edges lightly using Black Soot DI before mounting onto an identically shaped silver card stock mount . The image is embellished with black gem beads and some glossy accents drops in the eyes. I used foam pads to adhere the focal image onto black and silver card stock mounts.
To finish all the elements were positioned and adhered in place onto a pre -prepared white card.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to visit- I do appreciate it as I do all the lovely comments you so kindly leave for me .
