I've been promising myself a new printer for a few months now as the one I had was getting a bit temperamental, so when out shopping on Friday I saw the one I liked and duly treated myself. Not wanting to waste the little remaining inks from the old printer I thought I'd run off some decoupage sheets from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse decoupage' cd I'd bought in December... Now this is where all my plans for the weekend went completely out of the window because the nearly almost empty ink cartridges (maybe enough to print four or five decoupage sheets) acted as though a magic spell had been cast on them producing more and more ink and I spent most of Saturday and Sunday printing off sheets and sheets and more sheets of decoupage before the magenta finally gave up the ghost - still leaving the other 3 cartridges with a little ink but preventing any more printing.
So guess what I've used for my card today - yes, you've got it - a decoupage sheet from the House Mouse decoupage cd which is still on offer at half price from Joanna Sheen if any of you are interested. This is one of my favourite images as the sight of blossom means spring and hopefully better weather. The paper is Hunkydory, the flowers are made with a Poppystamps 'blooming posie' die from snippets (guess who's heading over to the Playground treehouse!) of designer papers with Stickles centres, and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.
I shall enter this in the following chaallenges
Pixies's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Allsorts challenge 'bring on the bling'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'pastel colours
In the Pink challenge 'bling it on' (2nd entry)
House Mouse & Friends challenge 'love is all around ' anything goes'
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'bingo / anything goes'
Crafty Ribbons challenge 'fabulous flowers with ribbon'
CD Sunday challenge 'seasons'
As You Like It challenge 'one or multi layer' - I do like CAS cards but decoupage images (especially these little meecies) with all the layers are my great love
Thanks for popping by and for taking the time to leave all your lovely comments. I'm off now to try and set up this new printer. Fingers crossed this one has magic inks too !
