Today I read the instructions on my Collall All Purpose Glue; it’s a woman thing. The trouble was they left me somewhat baffled, so along with the unanswerable question ‘How long is a piece of string?’ I would like to add ‘How long is a certain time’. To enlighten you here are the instructions from Collall: Apply the glue, let evaporate for a certain time then press the parts firmly together, allow to dry.So you can see my problem!
Back to the original intention of this post, before I got side tracked by gluey problems, my contribution to the Less is More challenge which this week is a colour one – turquoise. It just so happened that my husband needed some ‘thank you’ cards following a recent birthday so incentive provided off I set.
Clarity stamps – Celtic Square and Thank You
Memento ink – Tuxedo Black
Snippets of coloured card
Spectrum Noir Pens
First I stamped the Celtic Squares out on white card then coloured them in with Spectrum Noir Pens; the colours of snippets of card dictated the colours of the Celtic Squares. Once coloured in I cut the squares out and matted them onto the coloured card before mounting them onto an A6 blank card. I added a strip of the same coloured card at the bottom and stamped the ‘thank you’ on it.
This was a really quick card to make, just right for a batch lot . The turquoise version is for the Less is More challenge but I did other varieties as well!
Thanks for visiting, come again soon! Take care.
If anyone does has the answer to ‘How long is a certain time?’ I’d love to know!
