We are having some cool and cloudy weather after the hot days of the previous week...but still no rain. 3mm fell on Sunday but we need a lot more, as the ground is really dry and water resources are being challenged. Heavy water restrictions are now in place.
This will be my last regular posting for a while as we go off on our long holiday to Europe. Visiting our son and family in The Netherlands and doing a walking holiday in The Black Forest for a week. I will pop in when I can.
Today we have another colour challenge at The Outlawz. Jaqui has chosen this amazing photo for her challenge today. Just tell us what inspires you to make your card or project.
Our sponsor is Through The Craftroom Door with a wonderful prize.
The lovely coloured balls made me think of pretty coloured bubbles and that was the inspiration for my card.
The paper was from my stash, but I added more circles with pan pastels and a stencil
The image is from DS4J and is their current progressive challenge freebie"on FB. Get to know all about it HERE
I coloured it with Distress inkpads and put some glossy accents over the bubbles. They are nor as colourful as I had hoped. I cut it out with an C-cut die.
The sentiment was taken from a KaiserCraft sheet with words on it.
