Going to the shops

Afternoon All

How are you today? Very wet and windy here 
they say its due to the weather in America...
well at least for now we have not got the snow.

Glad to say Mum is now home ..... just hope 
what do I hope for ..... that she takes it easy.

Easy Does it

Well here is my card for today

Going to the Shops

- Just what I have been doing this morning although Sainsburys did not look
like these Wee Shops. Think they look like the Good Old Days
something Vintage about them....

I have made this card thinking something suitable for a man.

I used the New Clarity Stamp Wee Shops. stamping onto white card.
Yes White !!!

Then I used various different inks, distress inks making the sky using
cloud masks, added a few blobs of blue scrunched up on paper to give more texture in the sky.

Next  coloured in the shops with Acrylic paints and pencils.

Then painted the foreground with Color Burst having sprayed the whole card
 with plenty of water first then "puffed" with the powders.

Quite pleased as to how the Color Burst created the foreground.

Final step - mount onto blue card onto a white card blank
and added a Hunkydory sentiment.

Well thats it, sorry for the lack of photos today.

Seem to have forgotten to do them ..... silly me.

I would like to enter it for the following
