An Easter Card/Concertina Book Thing!

Easter11 Don't tell anyone but I have been skiving off today! I watched a movie this morning ... I know ... Tuesday morning at 8.30am and watching a movie :0) How naughty is that!

Then I played with one of the new Dylusion's stamp sets that I got for my birthday ... this one is set number 8; How does your garden grow! Love it ... it was shouting at me ... Easter Chicks ... Easter Chicks and even though I don't really do Easter ... well I do the chocolate egg thing obviously ... but that is about it ... I thought I would make a book/card thingy with Grey Board scraps and some small pieces of Ranger Manilla Card stock! The book/card thingy closed is slightly smaller than an ATC and is coloured completely with Dylusions Lime, Burnt Orange, Vanilla Custard and Hot Pink Ink Sprays.

Fraid it has n't photographed particularly well ... I tried to video it for you guys too ... but sadly the new camera was n't recording for the first half and for the second half I had set it up at the wrong angle so you can only sEaster11aee my chest ... nice ... but not much use to any of you!

I would say ... that I stamped with archival then kind of coloured the flowers with a Water Brush ... this lightened those areas and made them pop a bit more!

I must go ... if I stay here much longer I will start telling you how I threaded the ribbon ... then you will get reeeeeeeally bored! Plus the fact that I now need to catch up on the jobs I should have been doing :0)

Laters!

Oh my goodiness... watching TV in the morning? I'm shocked, nay horrified, what is the world coming to??? ;)
Had to laugh at the movie... I'm with Julia, don't delete it may be worth money... have lots of emails from weirdos that would pay top dollar for the second half.... ;)
