Grabbing the odd half hour to play is a necessity for me....
as is grabbing a bargain, so when I got the chance to
buy 4 sets of X-cut shadow box dies for under £36 I didn't
even try to resist(normal price £19.99 each)
I find theses sets are so useful as they cut apertures
and can be used individually as well as to make scenes.
I like to make my own background card using inks on plain paper...
cos it's messy...and I love messy :D
I cut the layers I wanted out of plan black card...
I only used 3, and made the "sky" around the distant trees wider
before sticking a bit of the "sky" backing card behind the windows
to give the effect of reflection(or house lights).
I also sent for some SO SUZY sentiment stamps last week....
*though postage charges from US made them twice the price*
worth every penny lol
They even added a sweet freebie "Spring Time Hugs"
*what a lovely thing to do*
I will definitely be buying more...struggled to only choose 3 lol
and arrived in perfect time to have fun with a few challenges.
