Colour Q 141

Boy, this is the card that nearly wasn't.  I spent a good amount of time last night working on this and wasn't really happy with the way things were coming together.  I liked all the elements separately, just not together.  I had a quick look at it again this morning and had another idea.  After getting dinner started (yay for the slow cooker), doing 4 loads of washing, having lunch and cleaning the bathrooms, I finally got a chance to get back down to the studio.  And joy of joys, my 5 y o son decided to join me :)

Here are this week's colours

This is what I ended up making

Yes, it's not your eyes, the sentiment is slightly crooked, but as this was my 3rd card base and the line between sane and insane becoming increasingly blurred, I just cut my losses and moved on.

I should add, I DO like my son joining me in the studio, however he does like to be close (thus bumping me a LOT) and getting into everything.  He did learn today how to open my SU inkpads by himself and make sure he cleaned the stamps after he had finished.  We still have a bit of work to do with inking the stamp up and closing the ink pad once finished with it.  His hands are now various shades of brown, green and purple, lol!  I will be trying my scubbie out on him tonight.

Well, that's it from me, nearly time to get the rice on to go with our Rogan Josh curry, which smells so good.  Hopefully it will taste good too.

Thanks for visiting.
