Firstly, welcome to my new followers. Thank you for taking the time to join my blog.
Hope you have been enjoying this glorious weather we have had here in West Sussex, wherever you are.
Hand update! My hand has greatly improved now. Just one sore to touch spot. So don't keep touching it!!Lol! At least my body pain has gone now too. The trouble is, the older we get, the longer it takes to recover from these sort of things. Thank you, to all you lovely people for your lovely messages. You are all very kind and caring.
My problem is, I am sure I can still do things and at the speed that I did them, when I was 35! That's the age I am mentally. It's the mirrors in my house, they keep showing me, some old bird that I don't know!! Has anyone else got one of these mirrors?
I got this Indigi Blu stamp set, free with a magazine. I liked this particular stamp, as you can just use her hair on its own, as a border. I do like stamps that you can use different parts, in different ways.
However, I was disappointed in the result of this stamping. It turned out very speckley, which looks very odd to me. I thought it was the ink I had used, which was Versafine Onyx Black but it wasn't. I have just received next months magazine and all the photos of cards, that readers had sent in, all have the same look.
Maybe its just me, but I would have preferred it to be smoother and solid colour. I was tempted to go over the image, using a Copics pen!
I just added a few gems to her hair to pick up the ribbon. The text I stamped with Versamark and embossed with black detail embossing powder.
Did a market yesterday. Much quieter than it usually is. There were a lot of other things going on in the village, as well as the football! I am doing a big one next Saturday and Sunday, at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt, Kent. It's quite a way from home but usually well attended. The restaurant there is well supported, so we get hundreds of people usually. Just hope the football doesn't get in the way!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thank you for stopping by and your lovely comments, are always appreciated.
