From Me to You

Back to normality today. John is off to Melbourne for the Home Show and I'm back at work, The fishing trip was a bit of a write off - John was sick and when he did fish, he didn't catch anything! However, I got a good bargain at Halls Gap in a little shop - I got a decorative tile and metal frame for $35 instead of $70 so I was quite pleased. I also stopped off in a little craft shop in Horsham and found some Graphic 45 Hampton Art Stamps I didn't have. It's our 33rd Wedding Anniversary in a couple of weeks so I thought I'd make a card for John.


Tonight's post is for this weeks Less is More Challenge


Week 73 - Recipe - Paper Piecing


Recipe:
White Card from stock
Crafts Too - Embossing Folder - Happy Valentines
Hampton Art - Graphic 45 Image from Key to My Heart
Ink SU Basic Black & Real Red
Sparklet from stash

I stamped the image in black onto the card, then in real red onto paper and used my blender pen to colour in the dress, I then cut out the dress and pieced it onto the card. I used black card  as a matt for the scan.
