A Little Jug Of Cheerfulness!

Hi everyone,




Blogger is having more fun with me today. Thanks to Heidi, I am now able to comment on some sites but not all. Now I am unable to choose my font style! It is this or nothing!! I apologise in advance if the lay out of this posting is a bit odd like the previous couple. Grrrrr!!




This card is a 'Get Well' card for Blogger. I hope it works!!



I hope you are all having a lovely Bank Holiday. The weather here in West Sussex is quite gloomy today. I have spent the last 2 days in the garden, clearing areas of overgrown shrubs and potting up planters with flowers. I was going to venture out today to do more but I generally need a bit of sun on my back!


This card is made using the Daisy Pitcher and the new Claire's Sentiments stamps from Little Claire. Unfortunately blogger will not allow me to link to Little Claire, so the web site is, http://www.littleclaire.co.uk/



I love stamps that you don't have to always use the whole image. If you just ink up the flowers with Versamark Watermark ink and stamp randomly over a piece of white paper, you can then dust over the images with either chalks or cosmic shimmer powders, for a gorgeous background paper that is unique.

I of course painted the image with Distress Inks, which I also used to stamp the Sentiment stamp.



Distress Inks or any other water based dye ink tends to form dots on most clear stamps, which then gets transferred onto the card when stamping. With Little Claire Stamps this does not happen. You always get a clear, sharp impression which is very important to me, as an avid dye ink user.

Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday and I hope Blogger gets Well Soon. Lol!

Thanks for stopping by,

Luv,
Carol S.xx
