I have been for my second session today with the Osteopath.
I have been pummelled , stretched and twisted
and under strict instructions to do no gardening or bending!
What's a girl to do but obey the Doctor.
The past week has seen me holed up in the craft pod
with a stinky cold and a bad back so I have been
catching up on everyone blogs
(well as much as blogger lets me as he keeps hiding
my Readers lists and stopping me from following new peeps.)
This is a card I made from the left overs from
2 Christmas cards I made and showed last week.
The left over part of the aperture I cut on card No 1.
and some of the little bits of fretwork from card No 2.
I matted onto red and then yellow card
and then onto grey card stock for the base card.
The background was made using the Faux Pearl Technique
as explained in the original card post.
I spent ages playing around with the off cuts
and finally came up with this design
which I thought looked a bit 'Celtic'.
Looking at it now I see loads of crabs.
All the bits were stuck down individually
using a paint brush and pva glue.
I know ! I'm a glutten for punishment.
I used some more bits up on another card
which I will post separately.
These are what was left over
I see loads of Reindeers antlers,
a couple of £ signs
and don't those bottom 2 look like
Lion Gargoyles from a stately home
or Egyptian Sphinx!!
Ok, ok . I 'll just keep taking the pills.
