Hello and welcome to you.
Thanks for stopping by from Kathryn’s blog. I’m glad you did – I know it must of been hard to stop looking at her gorgeous work!
Theme challenge week!
I love numbers! I love maths! and this week, I’ve made a kinda quirky valentine’s card. I know that was yesterday, but this card was made last week – in plenty of time.
It is a little bit hard to tell, but I have written ‘maths/number’ themed words all over the background DSP in silver gel pen (my white one wouldn’t work).
I was aiming for a school type, chalky blackboard in the background but had to give up that idea as it just wouldn’t come together for me, particularly when the white gel pen wouldn’t work, so I added in the Schoolhouse DSP instead.
The numbers have been glammed up a bit with Wink of Stella as they were looking a little bit sad next to that gorgeous Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. I really hope you can see it here…
And a kinda quirky valentines card is not complete without the tongue in cheek sentiment…
I have deliberately made the stamping inside a little bit messy, which is what adds to the nerdy/quirkiness, but is indicative of a ‘child sent’ valentine.
Please keep hopping along and see what Alison and the rest of these wonderfully talented ladies have been up to.
