Still no news, been for a bit of a walk this morning, still bouncing on my ball, but recon she will just come when she is good and ready, at least it is allowing me a little time to craft before my world as I know it turns upside down!
I fell for a Kanban kit a few weeks ago, and it had not quite made it to the loft yet, so I have had to hand to have a little play with. I don't really do toppers, yet I still manage to fall in love with images, and think they will be great ..... and then don't really like the cards I make with them as they look manufactured, and at the end of the day I love stamping and colouring, and is always what I look to first, so I have boxes of kits, that never get used, and I never learn my lesson!! I decided to try having a play and to still use stamping and other techniques so I still feel like I have crafted the card. I have used some toppers, stamped, played with twinkling H20's and done some embossing and this has been the result!
Also this is me attempting the "more is better" look, which I love but never quite manage to achieve, I am not sure on the results but decided to share anyway, if you have any tips on where improvement can be made, it would be much appreciated.
