International Art and Soul

I'm sorry to say that I haven't a card for this challenge over at International Art and Soul. My back still isn't quite right and I haven't been able to sit comfortably anywhere apart from the sofa. Please pop along to INTAAS and see what my team mates have made.

I hope to be back soon after I've managed to catch up with my crafting.

INTAAS Light and Dark

I set the theme over at International Art and Soul and chose 'Light and Dark'. This means however you interpret these words = light and dark card, light and dark moods - which I chose to use, or daylight and darkness or maybe you would interpret the words differently.

My card shows that there may be dark clouds behind you but there is light ahead of you so 

'No matter how you feel..........

My card blank is a 7x7 card by Crafts UK. The dark navy card is by Stampin Up and I embossed it with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder of 'clouds' before setting it as the mat for the large sentiment by Visible Image. I stamped it in black Memento ink and then cut it with a Hobbycraft die. I used a bright yellow Promarker to edge it.  The light bulb is also a Visible Image stamp which was stamped in black again and then after cutting it out I used the yellow again to highlight it.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Unfortunately since writing up this post I've had an accident in the garden and therefore have not been able to use my laptop for a while. I attempted to pick up a breeze block to put on the cover of my garden bench to prevent it flying away in these high winds. I'd forgotten my age and my back reminded me. I have lumbosacral strain so need to rest, heat pad on my back with only gentle exercise. I've been almost immobile for two weeks and cannot bend so most of my hobbies are 'out' for now. Looking at my card now I realise that this sentiment may apply to me.
