Blowing In The Wind


The Art By Barb Facebook progressive challenge has a lovely image this month depicting the perils of hanging out the washing on a windy day!


Materials used:
Art by Barb – Whoosh (request from Facebook Page)
X-Press It card
red card
brown card
fancy edge die
15cm square card blank
Copic pens
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink

The image is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics.

A red frame is cut with the die and then the image trimmed and attached to the back.

The card blank is covered with brown card and the framed image attached on top.

Finally the greeting is stamped out on white card cut to shape and edged with a red Copic pen before adding to the card front using foam pads. 

Thanks for stopping a while. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
