It's been a rather stressful week - I developed a chest infection, and my grand daughter had ongoing throat and chest issues - the end result is that I ended up antibiotics, as did she, but to top it off the poor girl also has covid again, so we (the family) are all back in isolation. So far she is the only one affected..
Today is Father's Day here in New Zealand... and late yesterday afternoon my daughter realised she didn't have cards for the occasion, so it was Mum to the rescue, with the help of Mr G***le.
I got two QACAS card made with a couple of print outs..
Two because there was one from the children and one from her.
This one is not so CAS - a layer of printed paper for the background, and another computer printed out, fussy cut and touched with black and silver pens layered over the top of the background
The sentiment was from a magazine set, and I performed surgery to be able to stagger the words across the screen. They were stamped in Catherine Pooler Rouge ink, and the edges of the background piece were wiped over the pad also.
I doodled around the paper, and card one was done... as my son in law is a very 'non frills' person I left the inside plain.
My daughter saw the image I had selected, and suggested the wording...
I trimmed the image, distressed and brushed the edges with Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink
I embossed the sentiment (in it's original form) using Espresso Bean ink
The words were computer generated, trimmed out, framed with a brown pen and applied.
I told you these were quick cards. Thankfully, as this was the first time I have made cards for a week or more - I have mainly been knitting as it's pretty mindless, good when you are feeling below par.
