Happy Easter

I hope that everyone is having a Happy Easter. I am loving spending time relaxing with family. My sister and her partner have come home for the weekend. We haven't seen them for a couple of months so of course Grace has changed a lot since then! 

I have had a chance to try a new technique this weekend and I love it. I used the Freshly Made Sketch 29 as my base for a card using a new technique. I saw a card using Velveteen Stamping, you stamp on the background in white pigment ink and then stamp over with your main image. The background shows through a faintly. I needed to use a stamp that is 'filled in' rather than an outline so I used Nursery Necessities and rolled the Nursery Letters wheel as my background.

 A close up so you can see the velveteen effect it gives a really lovely depth and texture to the stamping.

I realised I haven't had my camera out at all this week!!! So no new photos of Grace, this is a photo of her first sleep in her cot at 7 weeks old. The same age that my sister last saw Grace, it feels like a lifetime ago.

Happy Easter, Cavina.
