I hope this finds you all safe and dry...those living in Sydney that is. These past 2 days we have been hit by very strong winds and relentless rains. Some areas in NSW that have only had previous flood waters subside have once again been hit. Nature is indeed and angry mistress at present.
Now...question. Have you ever had an idea come to do at a very odd hour of the AM (usually 2-3AM) and not been able to go back to sleep because of it??? This is how these cards started. Like most....I struggle with male cards, but when I do one I like I tend to stick to the same layout etc until the next lightning bolt comes along!! Well This lightning bolt came in the guise of texture.
I have been having so much fun playing with all of my new SU goodies. The set I chose is the Feeling Sentimental which has some GORJUS old style images. I also used for the 1st time the Honeycomb EF and Coredinations CS (yes....hanging my head in shame). This is what I came up with in the rain yesterday......
I apologise for the lighting and background as these were taken in my daughter's room using her wash basket as a stand!!!
I ran 1 piece of Coredinations CS through the Honeycomb EF and then cut along the lines up the middle to get the 2 pieces. It gives the impression of a jagged line. Here they are close up. Remember you can click on the photo to get a larger look.
I love the look the sing of the Coredinations CS gives. I cannot believe it has taken me SO long to try it. I also added antique Pewter brads to the centres of the penny farthing's wheels. Sponging the ovals and the sentiment pieces also helped I think.
Thanks for popping by today. Stay safe and most importantly be creative.
