Day 6 of 16

Great to see some sunshine yesterday afternoon, although it seems to have retreated behind clouds again this morning.   Hay ho the up side is that this is comfortable weather to be out and about in.

Yes I did just about manage my ambitions for yesterday, keep the hurdle low and you stand a chance.   Also pretty much sorted out the future of this house, just got to wait now for everything else to be resolved.

And of course some time to get inky.

Remember the pages I was making and sharing earlier this year, (& the calendar made at the end of last)?   Well this is another one, inspired by Running with Scissors, a Grimsby Craft Shop.   Take three things Rectangle, Yellow and Ribbon Tracey talks about follow the yellow brick road.   So off I went to bed thinking of a meandering yellow strip from top to bottom widening as it came down, with little cobbles hand drawn on it, z z z so no idea how the design went from there.

Yesterday wide awake and feeling proud of myself for finding the floor sucker.   Out came card 5 6/16" x 4 10/16" That Special Touch Mask, Inkylicious Ink Dusters and Adirondack inks in Sandlewood, Butterscotch & Sunshine colour blended through mask over card.   7 of the shapes were marked out in fine nib black pen.    Next the PSX style Sunflower stamp inked with Memento Bamboo and then filled with Do Crafts felt pens, the fine nib of the yellow one used to fill the letters.   Yellow Ric Rak ribbon cut to fill the corner in the suggestion of sun rays (must have been the effect of actually seeing the sun yesterday.) A creamy button tops these attached with Silicone glue oh that and the dst used to attach the ribbon will need glitter then!   Thought it would look good in the centre of the flower as well.   Decided to keep this one clean and not distress the edges.    I'll pop this into the shop later there is a charity shop near by so they will be getting the first bag of de-clutter.

I would also like to share this with
