Thanks for popping in. On my way to Raku, so my fingers are flying over the keys like a bee’s wings! Or should I say a butterfly’s wings!
Yesterday in the moment of Clarity I showed you a clever card by clever Dee Paramour…
It intrigued me when I first saw it. The moths and butterflies cut out of parchment and attached only at the body are very cool of course. But it was the background, the circles of colour, that I was studying. At first glance I thought she must have die cut a load of designer paper using a tiny circle die, or even used a punch. But only had to run my finger across the surface to realise it was printed. Mmmmm… now where had I seen this before….
And then I remembered! On the BACK of the Designer packs! Oh you clever girl, Dee, I thought. What an ingenious use of the colour swatch on the back of the pack. That which we never use, that which we never even look at. So pretty too!
Let’s have a little Blog Candy, shall we? Guess the colour pack! Is it Shenandoah? Or Toscana? Or Rainbow River? Or any of the others?! And tell us: is it taken from the 8×8 paper pack? Or the 5×7 Card Petite pack? Or the 8×8 Parchment pack?
Just post what you think below, (eg 8×8 Indian Summer Paper pack), and then I will pick a random winner out of the correct answers – and that winner will receive a pack of the very same thing! Gottabewurfago!
Let’s move in a little closer, so you can enjoy the butterflies, the colours and the art…
Have a lovely Saturday, however you choose to spend it. I am already looking forward to hanging out with Dave in the garden this afternoon, after RAKU. I’ve got a little lino cut from the SHAC I want to try.
If I have learnt anything from this Pandemic, it is to take each day as it comes, and try not to waste any of them. I have always taken life one day at a time – hence the name of the blog – but now I LIVE those days more fully, now I plan them better and am more present in them. There’s so much to do, so much to learn, so much to experience; can’t be wasting energy needlessly on fruitless fretting. Time to potter!
Love and Hugs
