Especially for you

Hi Bloggers.

I didn't get much of a lie in yesterday as it was bin collection day and I was woken just after 7am with lots of beeping and 'this vehicle is reversing' πŸ˜’ Oh well! Ed Sheeran was awsome! Just him on stage with his guitar and his loop peddle for just under 2 hours. Amazing! He just had a pianist join him for 1 song. Loved it 😊

Here's today's card -

I stamped the Woodware Owls Stamp onto Bright White Card using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I coloured in using Graphmaster Alcohol Markers. I used -

 Browns - (lights) 36, 104, 101 and (darks) 103, 93, 96
Yellows (beaks) - 37, 32, 24
Reds- 12, 10, 11
Pinks - 28, 8, 89
Blues - 67, 63, 64
Purples - 84, 82, 81
Teals - 68, 57, 61
and BG1, BG3

I matted onto Tan Card and then onto a Bright White Card blank. I added some 5mm White Pearls.

I stamped the sentiment that comes in the Woodware Cosmos Flowers Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Memento. I trimmed it and matted onto Tan Card.

Not a difficult card to put together but takes a while to colour - pretty relaxing though 😊
