Very wet, windy and miserable in Perth, Western Australia today. Just ideal weather to be inside playing with paper, ink and glue and making some cards without feeling guilty that you should be outside doing the gardening.
I have finally finished re-organising my crafting space and it is now a lot easier to find things when they are in storage cupboards instead of cardboard boxes and sorted into the same category and all in the same container. All the storage containers are labelled, so I now know where everything is (well sort of, I just have to open the cupboard doors and peruse until I find what I am after).
Being such an ideal day to papercraft, I have entered the challenge this week at Just Add Ink which is to just add pearls.
I have used the colours of Pool Party and Basic Black and created a piece of Faux Patina, with Whisper White cardstock, Basic Black and Pool Party ink and gold embossing powder, which I used as my backgound paper along with a piece of Basic Black DSP. The border around the oval was made using the Doily Triple Layer punch an idea that Teneale Williams showed on her blog. I thought it was a great idea and it created a lacey effect to set off the oval.
