Playing about

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

My shoulders have been acting up again now for a couple of weeks but there we go, we have to take the rough with the smooth don't we!
Yesterday Stephen surprised me by appearing in the sitting room having come down the stairs without supervision for the first time :o)

A few weeks ago whilst visiting The Silver Scrapper's blog I was very taken by one of her techniques so I finally got around to having a go. You can see how to do it here.
Unfortunately my effort is not as good as Elizabeth's but they do say practice makes perfect so I will be trying again :o)

So here it is.

It is a small (A6) card, which I don't make very often.
PMS white hammered card folded and cut to A6.
I used 3 colours of Memento dewdrop ink pads on a plain white card scrap then stamped and cut with Nestie and layered onto gold textured card. Flutterby cut with Memory Box dies from same gold card. That's all there is to it :o)

So fun to revisit and love the style. That memory box butterfly with gold foil is gorgeous. Hope your shoulder is feeling better so and what a wonderful surprise Stephen gave you.
