A piece of blue card was run through the cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked with brown, mustard and red - the saying was computer generated. This is for the challenge on Lots to do: Nature. The flower was a cream one that I inked.
I used a couple of paisley stamps from Tanda randomly, using Stazon ultramarine on the blue base card and also stamped a panel and mounted on silver mirror card, which is raised up with foam (but you can't tell that from the photo). The sentiment is also raised to give the card a bit more dimension.
So there's no patterned paper in sight (which makes a nice change).
On HS:MS:HS today: 'This Saturday I’d like to try and make our SPS shots just a little bit more interesting - so who's going to play? What I would like you to do is post a favourite childhood photo of yourself, but one that has a little story behind it. Not looking for an essay, just a few lines about the memories that the photo brings. Can you do that?'
This is me as a bridesmaid in November 1954 (I was seven). Mum decided that I should have my hair cut and home permed especially for the occasion, but she was never much good at doing hair, particularly anything to do with perming! - hence the fuzzy look (after lots of brushing).
There were six bridesmaids altogether - three adult and three children.
My dress was white with a silvery pattern on it. I remember thinking that the gloves were so posh and the horseshoe of anenome flowers was beautiful (doesn't show in the old black and white photo).
