Feeling Rusty?




Do you feel rusty...I know I did...I've been trying out pilates and I have to say it is really doing the trick...I'm feeling so much more flexible. Still can't touch my toes though...my excuse is I have very long legs and a very short body, so I've got further to reach!!! Enough of that though...just came to mind coz the next "Tanda Teaser" is to use rusty colours in your creation.

My card uses stamps from Tanda...including Zoe's special Wantage girls set...I just wanted to let Zoe know it's great especially these really industrial looking impellers! My rusty cogs are recycled fruit juice cartons coloured with alcohol inks. Lots of distress inks used here....were supposed to be shades of brown, but came out a bit green...need to wash out all my blending foam me thinks!

Oh news on our little feathered guest...he/she we don't know which...after a night in the warm, a fat ball and some water...our little blue tit flew off into the wild this morning....I was half hoping that we would have a little crowd of blue tits waiting on the doorstep this evening...temperatures are due to go down to -10 degrees C tonight. Fingers crossed our blue tit makes it!

Back to the card....I would like to enter it into the following challenges:

"Charisma Cardz - Vintage"

"The Stamp Man challenges - Embellish it"

"Fun With Shapes - Include a die cut/punch"

"Creative Stamp Friend - Old Fashioned or Vintage"

"Cup cake craft - Recycle"
