Hi all you lovely bloggers,
I know the gardens needed rain, but typical of this country, everything regarding weather is extreme! From baking us for weeks, we now get soaked every day. I have been dodging the thunder, lightening and heavy down pours. My tumble dryer is in the garage and I have to run in between the rain drops!
That was yesterday, as I started typing this post last night. It got to 2am and I felt rather tired, so left it to finish this morning! We have a very sunny day at the moment.
Firstly today, I must welcome my new followers. Thank you so much for taking the time to join me as a follower. I have returned the favour. I hope you like what you see here.
I decided to make a few male cards for my stock. CAS I thought for speed. The Birthday Beer one was a stamp I have had for many years. Don't know where it came from but it's part of a set with a motorbike. I coloured it with a mixture of Inktense Pencils and Copics. For the foam on the top of the glass, I used Americana Writer acrylic dimensional paint. I bought it last year for snow on Christmas cards, to which I added glitter. I then put Glossy Accents onto the glass. Sadly this has not been picked up by the camera. The gloomy dark days were not the best for taking photos. ( Nothing to do with me being crap at taking pics.Lol!)
This stamp I bought at Ally Pally last year. It was from Creative Expressions, unmounted, in a box with hundreds of loose stamps. I also bought a few rather rude sentiment stamps. Don't know if I would use them but they just made me laugh.
I stamped it twice and cut out the grapes and used Pinflair Glue Gel to 3D them.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. I do really appreciate them.
