Buddy Greeting & Being inventive!
Hey!! This is a fun card in response to the Gallery Idol challenge at Paper Crafts Connection
The task this week was to create a card using a household object. I’d had the idea to use ear buds and colourise them. Simple to do- just dilute some dye ink ( I used a drop from my refills) with a tiny bit of water. Soak the tips on the colours and leave overnight to dry on some absorbent paper ( I used kitchen roll). The hardest bit was getting the Prima stickers to remain on the ear buds! I do love the fun element to it- and the rainbow colour scheme is back. Just happy, happy, happy!
I’ll be back soon with a few of the Fathers Day cards. My kids had a ball making them. I really enjoy watching their creative process and inventiveness. They just won’t take the products how they’re designed- they’ll chop them up, adapt them and change them. I really have to resist the urge to ask them to make something straighter or line it up.
Today ( Father’s Day) was lovely but disastrous on the food front. Tried to make Banoffee pie which is really not hard- but I didn’t manage to boil up the condensed milk in good time so thought I’d do it directly in the pan. I had to whisk it that vigorously that I ended up with a blister on my hand ( I kid you not!!). Sadly the caramel was more toffee than banoffee. It wasn’t that pleasing to eat which was mortifying when all the ingredients were just yummy. Definitely a case of the thing not being greater than the sum of its parts!
Better run- have some ironing to do. See you when I’ve located some decent value school blazers! ..
