Good morning. Well, I've been busy in my spare time sorting 16 years worth of holiday albums and photos starting right back at the beginning, so I haven't been sat, playing & crafting as much. More staring at computer screens and photos. It's one of those large projects that could overwhelm if not done in small bite sized chunks.
Anyway, last night I took a break and made a birthday card.
Well, in truth, I suppose I could say I began this the night before, when I dabbled with Ranger's Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. I had a sheet of chippies from Woodware and chose one of the square frames to experiment with. I simply covered it with the gloopy paint and left it to set overnight.
When I eventually sat down to play last night, it was merely a case of trimming card out and making an arrangement in which I could use the crackled frame. Hence the butterfly, from a Martha Stewart punch, which fit perfectly inside.
