I couldn't think of anything more soothing than being on the cool water - This guy has the right idea

I hope to share a few more cards with you soon... I've had a little burst of inspiration but who knows how long that will last.

Have you tried alcohol inks on vellum? I hadn't until yesterday. I didn't even know you could use them on vellum but I live and learn, courtesy of those clever ladies at The CAS Mix Up and all you talented people who share tips and tricks.
And at The Flower Challenge
I have no idea what vellum this is... I bought tons for wedding invitations I made a few years back but many of the packs I got were not white enough so I didn't use them. However, it worked well with AI's and the stamping / embossing of the flower, which I fussy cut and added white gel pen to.
I don't know what you call those teeny tiny beads or why I had 2 packs in my stash (now 1.5 packs as the floor got the rest) nor do I get how you are supposed use them... Heck they roll EVERYWHERE but somehow I got a bunch to stay. Maybe I should have used a dish? Splattering gold Poca paint is so much easier
Now you know what I'll be doing with all those pieces of vellum from now on
By the way the flower is an Hibiscus but I can't stop seeing a pansy now... Huh
Enjoy your day/evening

Because I did these on watercolour CS which is not as white as I'd like, I printed the background cardstock and believe it or not, it is actually a green ombre but it looks more gold on my photos...
I really enjoyed doing these, it's been awhile
And there are plenty more in the mini jungle I call a garden

Well, Ginger just loves it and sits out there even in the pouring rain, so I got new parts, fitted them with Ian's help and then re-covered the seat in a thick waterproof fabric. That was hard work! The fabric is so tough but it's definitely waterproof and Gingerboy is happy.
All the added extras I had, the owl hanging to the left to which I added chimes, the the cat hook on the door and a plaque that I recovered and varnished. The metal jug I painted and added lights that stream down at night. Ignore the chair, it's where the morning sun hits and Ginger heads off there every morning.
The fountain in the middle will stay, it was leaking badly but now with some waterproof cement and new bags of pebbles it works a treat.
You could say I have been crafty but in the garden rather than with paper...
I will catch up with you all soon and I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to along with all the other things life throws up. There have been a few hospital visits for DH and he is now having to have eye surgery, though we don't have a date yet.
Stay well and thanks so much for your visit
Till next time
