Been Playing......

Good afternoon...

First of all - Thanks so much for your well wishes for my Aunt, she is out of hospital now but has given me a dilemma... She has decided that she wants to move near to me and whilst I would LOVE to have her close by even living with me, she wants to be independent and finding something suitable is not easy. It's weighing heavily on my mind...
Then my lovely Ginger cat had to visit the vet again as he wasn't well but thankfully he is now doing ok and the vet was delighted to see he's lost weight Yay! Only about 3 kgs to go Lol!

So to relax I decided to pull out my crafting stuff yesterday ... I have so many unused die cuts and plenty of watercoloured and sponged pieces I made but just abandoned so I thought I'd get out my stencils, paste and embossing powders...
I only completed 4 cards but embossed a lot of things to use again. Today I have a card using a piece of watercolour I did with the salt technique - I'm guesting with the lovely ladies over at 


Where I was introduced to this technique, anyway here's my card


I cut a little jar from my salted watercolour piece and glossed it with Mod poge dimensional then added some sprigs...


There's a left over watercoloured sprig of coral and an embossed sprig. When it comes to using silver and gold, well, I often find that the gold is too dull or the silver too flat so I took an empty jar and mixed some of each powder together and I much prefer this colour


I'll share some more of my makes in the next week... 

I hope you have a beautiful weekend and I really hope those of you affected by the latest storm in Texas are safe and sound

Till soon
