Hello Everyone!!!


Bit warm today, too warm for me to be outside too long.  It is still much cooler inside and I hope it stays this way, I am not fond of the fluid that heat gives me. 😦  Haha you didn’t know I could winge did you??


We will leave that there and take a look at what nature put up for us today.  This is a skink, he is about 12 inches long and moves so so fast.  He is streamlined and very shiny.  Lovely lizard.



He has yellow stripes down his sides runnimg from behind the eyes to about halfway down the body.  Racing stripes maybe. 🙂


So I went and made a care with the SU set Inspired by Nature, how clever is that?



Oh my, this is done with a Faux Tile technique.  I cut the piece to the size I wanted and used a PATP to get the decorative border.  Then I scored the lines on it.  Then stamped the image, making sure not to press to heavily so that the scorelines remained ink free.


When the stamping was dry, I covered the entire panel with Versamark Ink and then dipped it into clear embossing powder to get a good coverage and then heated it. 🙂


It is shiny and really does look like a tiled surface.  Who would have thought?


I finished the card with a black trim piece along the bottom and a sentiment panel and a little butterfly.


Today I spent quite a while in the craftroom and finished some other projects and a card made especially for my friend Lisa who sent me a dress form stamp, but she is not checking the internet at present, so I will keep it until I know she will be online.  Gotta love our Crafting Cottage lady.

Thanks for calling in, hope your day is going well.

Hugs :)
