It's time again for Make it Monday #101 linky party.....I wonder if you are the lucky winner of the lovely bling and ribbons prize....pop over to Shirley-Anne's blog here to find out....good luck!!
This week we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and the image I did choose was not quiet right for my hubby who's birthday it was last Wednesday... I will do that next time and you will see why lol!! any how I chose Guy bbq as this is David every Sunday barbecuing for all 5 of us, we have also barbecued in the snow lol!!! I got my inspiration for the clouds from Chrissy, as I just loved her card the other week with all the lovely clouds ...mine are a bit darker as it's a thundery sky...as that's all we have had for weeks lol!! I used Tim Holtz distressing ink called weathered wood...I did have a little mishap just under the little birdies, my brush just touched the image, and what happened next.... a smudge!!! the image was finished as I coloured the whole thing in first then masked and did the clouds...that's a NO, NO in future as you can always print out a fresh image and start again if you do the masking and clouds FIRST lol!! I haven't had time to do another image, and my hubby didn't even notice the smudge ...well he didn't say anything anyway lol!!
