Hello

Hi there...

Well having had a warm and sunny bank holiday weekend, the weather has turned today and it's gone quite cool...sigh

I went to see a prospective property for my Aunt today, even though it appears she had decided to stay in Lincoln - I'd made the appointment last week so thought I'd still go along and check it out and I was very pleasantly surprised... It's pretty near perfect - just needs a little updating. So when talking to her earlier I mentioned it and she was thrilled! Seems the move maybe back on the cards again! I tell 'ya, my head is all over the place! Thank goodness I can lose myself in creativity from time to time...

Here's another card from one of my watercoloured pieces


I used some translucent embossing paste through a dots stencil and then Versamark through a leaf stencil which I embossed in gold


You can just about make out the shine of the translucent paste


The die cuts were smooched in Versamark and embossed with a mix of gold and silver embossing powders - That little hello die by Technique Tuesday was a gift from Lol & Bonnie at CAS Watercolour... Those ladies are just the sweetest! Thank you both so much!
I still felt my card needed 'something' and I remembered how my friend Darnell had recently used score lines on one of her recent cards and it looked fabulous so that's what I did too.

I've got to run - I have a cake in the oven - A recipe from Pinterest (how I love that place) it's a blueberry and peach cake and it looks divine! Hubby's mouth is watering Lol!

Catch up with you later in the week...

Take care

Hope the cake turns out well.
We have got a cooler evening today and I'm rejoicing as it's been so hot down here lately.

Maybe autumn is just around the corner!

The cake sounds diving and I LOVE the WC circle BG! The score lines are the perfect touch! Leave it to Darnall! Can't wait to hear what your Aunt decides!

What great news about your beloved Aunt. Hope it works out?....please let us all know x Loving the embossing work on the background and of course the score lines. Beautiful colours and love how you've mixed the powders on this stunning card x

Diane said...

Simply beautiful and love the scoring, just adds so much to the card, and your mix of EB powders is a fabulous idea! Will be interesting to see what your Aunt does, I am sure whatever she decides it will be the best for her! Our weather is getting to feel like fall, rather early for here but i love the cooler nights. The cake sounds great, I made a new one from Pinterest myself and it turned out yummy, called strawberry lush!

Darlene said...

Oh Ros I just love your design! Your style is so clean and beautiful! And the score lines are the perfect touch ... that Darnell ... she a clever one too! LOL
The pie sounds yummy! Thanks for always inspiring me! Think I just might have to give this creation a CASE! Hugs (Miss you at Double D)

Oooh, I can imagine this in person with the soft gold and translucent embossing paste. It does show up in the second photo. Beautiful colors and love the score lines. That's a tough decision for your aunt. You want her to be happy and do the best thing in all respects. My head would be all over the place, too! Your cake sounds delicious! I get a lot of recipes from Pinterest.

Greta said...

My mouth is watering, too--bet it was yummy, Ros! So great you kept that appointment & it would be wonderful if she could be happy close to you! Beautiful & unique card--just love the colors & gold! Hugs, Greta

Maria said...

Oh, your card is gorgeous! Love the water colored background and touches of gold, so pretty! Hope all works out for things with your Aunt! Sounds like you're a big help to her! So sweet and thoughtful of you, Ros!

Darnell said...

Mm-mmm! I love blueberry and peach anything so you have my mouth watering, too, Ros! It's the perfect time of the year for both! I was already drooling anyway from going through your last beautiful makes to catch up! Well done using your UCBs to create all these stunning cards! Love the score lines (and everything else!) on this one and thank you for the shoutout!

I'm sorry to hear that your beloved Aunt was unwell and that you have been riding a roller coaster about whether she is staying there or coming to live closer to you. I am sending hugs and positive vibes that it all works out for the best and without too many more turns on the roller coaster!! Lots of love, Darnell

Sylvia said...

My mouth is watering as well, Ros, hope your cake turned out well...love getting recipes from Pinterest as well...don't like their new format though! Such a pretty card and I know you are happy about finding a place your aunt might come and live. Take a deep breath...enjoy Thursday!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

I love that scoring technique, I first learn it from Make it Monday at PTI, wonder why I don't use more often, what a pretty card! May I have a piece of that cake please?

Barbara said...

What a mesmerizing card... How did that blueberry-peach cake turn out? I have a perfect recipe for one, in case yours didn't live up to the expectations!

Tracy said...

I've been really missing visiting my bloggie friends. Hopefully things are starting to settle down a bit now and I can get back on track. Can't wait to peruse all the lovelies I've missed. This is stunning. I love the colors and the scoring you added for texture. :-)
