Good evening fellow bloggers :) I hope you are well.
My printer has given up! It's a terrible terrible terrible thing! Not long ago we purchased this 'continuous ink' supply thing which has been terrific and we have heaps of ink in reserve and extra bottles .... and now the printer has died! I know they are not that expensive to buy new .... but this model is no longer available ... which wouldn't be a problem if we didn't have a couple of hundred dollars worth of ink sitting here waiting to be used! Arrrggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
So in my frustration I created a card ... thankfully had this image already printed! I really wanted to do a DT card for Stamping With The Dragon tonight .... have a lovely new image I wanted to colour ..... oooohhhh you are going to love it! But you will have to wait until next week to see it ... he he he .....
Ok ... so anyway this is tonight's creation.
My dear friend suggested I used Twine! wow .. twine .. this sounds exciting .... but sadly I don't have any and I like to complete a card in one sitting (otherwise I get distracted and start colouring another image) ... so no twine meant that I had to use ribbon.
Note to self ..... buy some twine!
When I put it all together it seemed to be very plain and even though that's my middle name (not really ...) I wanted to try something a little different. So I got out a Tangerine coloured ink pad and a piece of sponge and dabbed it all around the outside of the paper and cardstock. Looking better ... but the image then looked to stark. So using the same technique I went around the outside of the image.
And what you see above is the end result. I'm happy with it ... and am going to give it to my Nephew next month for his 15th Birthday! Yippeeeeeee ... now I've just got to think of what to get him for a gift.
Ok well I have really waffled on tonight ... thanks for sticking with me ... can totally understand if you skimmed through though :)
