The funny thing is that by this time next week, I will be dreaming of them again. Thank goodness I probably won't get near a Dunkin Donuts again for another two years......
I decided to have another go at the Reverse Confetti Sketch Challenge and quite liked the look of this one. As I've mentioned before, I'm not so good with lots of layers but worked out pretty quickly what I wanted to do and of course, some of it had to be fiddly:
I stamped the 'hello' in grey ink, fussy cut and popped it up on lots of tiny pieces of foam tape. I also covered it in lashing of Wink of Stella for lots of shine. A few pink and grey enamel dots and the sketch card was finished.
The chevron die is from Reverse Confetti. The 'hello' stamp is also from Reverse Confetti 'Color Me Happy' as well as the pineapple stamp from 'Pineapples a Plenty'. The enamel dots are from Papervine.
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
My stomach tells me its time for bed. Maybe lying down will make it feel better. Although I'm sure that come tomorrow, I will be able to fit in a few more......Its the last week of the school term before the kids are on holiday for two weeks. I also have Dave home tomorrow as he is buggered from his weekend away. Must be tiring going out for dinner and shopping, the poor thing.......Or maybe he's tired from lugging home all those donuts!!
Hope you were able to get a good nights rest. Love all the fabulous gold detail on your card Shona.ReplyDelete

Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Let's try this again...my comment was eaten!ReplyDelete
I shouldn't be giggling at your donut distress but...just a little tee hee at your description! I'm sure by now you feel much better and I so relate: when the marvelous treats come along, to heck with exercising restraint! You're working magic with the RC goodies here...the chevrons, the hello, the colours, the pineapple...a work of art combination! So fabulous! I'm curious as to the kind of cardstock you use, as I'm in desperate need (especially grey...can you believe I don't have any that I would consider 'use-able'?) of some multi-colour packages. Sometimes, it's frustrating that the nearest 'real' craft store is 400km away...*grin*
