What happened on the weekend
We went to the Jimboomba Car Show for a look yesterday, and considering it was their first year, it was really good. Lots of cool old cars! They also had some market stalls so we got some delicious homemade chutneys, chilli jam, and lime marmalade.
Spoke to our DD Jessie this morning (who's now in Townsville on her school band tour). She went to Magnetic Island sightseeing, and in the evening they played at the North Queensland Jazz Club. She said they got a standing ovation from some of the audience and had to play an encore. Today they are doing music workshops all day, and then travelling to Proserpine.
Got to do a little bit of scrapping on the weekend- a couple of quick cards, and got half a layout done. I took a photo of the cards....
I embossed them and used Smooch ink to highlight the raised areas. You can use the Smooch inks in a number of ways. Paint with it directly from the bottle (as I did on the black and purple card). Use it like a watercolour. Apply it as a rub with your fingers (as I did with the gold edges, and on the green background on the green card),you can blend two or three colours using this technique. The photos don't show up the gorgeous shimmer.
