CBC Crew challenge - Template - CBCC047

Clare set this template challenge this week on CBC:

I used BG Boxer papers for the background and the pieces through the slots of the letters. I've had these letters for ages and never used any of them - they have a slight gold glimmer to the white which you can't see on the scan.

A card at last!

Today is the last day for entries for this month's (no, that should be 'last month's) card competition, organised by Wendy. I've just scraped in by the skin of my teeth (well, actually I think I might just be too late).

The top surface is acetate, which has been daubed at the back with denim and stonewashed alcohol inks with a hint of silver. I then stamped the Tanda stamp beach huts at the bottom with Stazon Ultramarine and partly coloured with a Whispers permanent blue pen. This was then overlayed on to a vague seascene background.

It's not my usual style (well, actually I don't really know what my style is because I haven't really got one!), but I enjoyed doing it:


It's SPS day on HS:MS again today - how the days and weeks go by - it doesn't seem a week ago since we did the last one.

Anyway, having shown lots of photos in the past of Josey and some of Oscar, I thought I'd show a couple of rare ones of Nelson, our cat, who, sadly, was run over a few years ago. He was such a character and we missed him greatly - he was only 5 when he was killed.

I changed the photos to black and white - his colours, of course:

I wish I'd taken more photos of him - a few that I did take (including one of my favourites of him) seem to have disappeared.
