Kind of Blue number two

OK -I confess I'm a frustrated poet and you might have got the Miles Davis drift if you know anything about jazz. Cutting the waffle and on to the serious stuff you might remember if you read yesterday's blog that I got a second impression from my ink rolled cuttlebug folder and saved the piece. This was even more distressed and I wasn't too bothered about preserving the texture-just the uneven dots and ink-so I cut it with Nestabilities labels one and inked the edge with the adirondack denim again.
Background is another 5op in a Stamp Man sale stamp. Hero Arts wood mounted and originally £5.75. Inked with the brayer and stamped four times-I know the bottom right one is skewiff but I liked it. Motifs have been cut from a K and Co pad. Craftwork cards sentiment mounted on an offset oval punched with the SU punch. That Hero Arts ribbon set again. Craftwork Cards back to basics scalloped card blank.
Remember the swirl and the sentiment. It's all grist to the mill. I know-keep taking the tablets Betty.


  1. Love the swirl and the sentiment - my fave. Tablets or not, keep on! As for the award yesterday - just accept it, you need do nothing..it's not conditional and as all these things, just a bit of fun and some publicity for your blog. Certainly I'm the last one to want to cause you to fret!

  2. You've certainly bagged some bargains Betty, that's what I like. I see you are still in your blue period and very nice too.

  3. What a lovely card - those elements have been put together beautifully. Been having a nosey at yesterday's too - all fab and I do like the papers set at a jaunty angle.

    Love Lynda xxx
