Well, as I seem to be blogging a little more often these days I decided yesterday to revamp the old look. It's fairly easy to do as I used a new background from 'the cutest blog on the block'. I hope you like it. I do.
I also managed, with a little spare time I didn't expect to have (long story but my colleague had been making me tea with skimmed milk instead of soya and a really grotty stomach ensued) I managed to do a card for this week's sketch challenge at From the Heart blog
. I will admit to bottling out of the twist as what I had in mind didn't fit that bill. I was also in two minds as to whether to enter or not as my card looked different in my mind than it turned out in real life.
When I saw the sketch I had an instant plan for the lighthouse stamp I bought last week (you can find it here
). My plan was to create the diagonal element of the sketch with string and tie a nautical knot to compliment the lighthouse theme. Unfortunately, the string was too thin for what I had in mine and para cord was too thick. That only really left me with ribbon to go with. You should be able to see the two layers of ribbon within the knot but it sort of got lost and left me with a different looking knot. Although I'm happy with how it sits, it's different to my original plan. Anyway, this is what I'm left with
and this was the original sketch
Oh rats! I've just realised I could have put my sentiment in a heart shape. Well, it's too late now. I hope you like it. Thanks for reading.
