Hope you've all had a fabulous start to your week. Here in London, the sun is still shining, it's still hot and very humid and even though we had quite a downpour yesterday, it was so shortlived it didn't do a thing to cool anything down!! Put that together with the fact that at the moment, I'm being terrorised in the living room by the biggest moth I've ever seen in my life, had to deal with a small army of ants in the kitchen and don't even mention the spiders!!! Eek...don't you just love the British summers...lol!!!
It's been a busy couple of weeks here at Chez Williams' and today, is the first day that I feel I'm actually coming up for air, before getting back on the rollercoaster tomorrow and starting all over again but today, I thought I'd share a card that I made last month for a Clarity Stamp show. I don't actually think that at the end of the day, this stamp kit was included in the show, which was a shame but at least I get to show it here and as always, I hope you like it!!
I was sooooo pleased with this card and the way it turned out!! I couldn't have been happier...I just wish I could've kept it!! The wall for the little pussy cat to sit on is created using a Wendy Vecchi stencil and PaperArtsy Grungepaste, before I then painted it with Tim Holtz Distress Paints. Don't ask which colours, it was all trial and error until I got it looking right but doesn't it look fantastic!?!
The background is created using Distress Inks and the cat is stamped and then decoupaged to give the appearance of it sitting on the wall.
As a finishing touch, I created a starry night sky!!
So, that's it from me for today and as always, I really do appreciate all your comments and visits. I must apologise for my lack of visits to your blogs over the last few months ~ as some of you know, at the beginning of the year I had pleurisy and I also managed to crack a rib from the continual coughing due to the chest infection. To cut a very long story short, along the road to my recovery I have suffered a few complications which I now hope are going to be sorted out with a new GP but this has taken up a lot of my time and energy and that's why I unfortunately haven't managed to visit you all as much as I would like too!! I do follow all your work through social networking sites, etc and have seen all your fantastic creations but I really do hope you all understand why I don't visit you atm, but I can't thank you enough for all your support over the last few months!! Here's to feeling 100% soon and hopefully, fingers crossed, getting my life back on track!!
Thanks again for visiting and I'll see you all very soon!
Love Emma xxx
