9 Patch extended.

Well Hello,
Yes it is me, I am back at long last...Feb 22nd was the last time I blogged anything, so you can imagine how I am feeling; desperate is one word that comes to mind, having a long break away from creativity is not always a good thing, as I have to admit to floundering at times in the construction of this card.

I thought I would try a new Challenge Blog called Cuttin and Stampin 
I have made a 9 patch as my Bg then extended the design by adding the elements which in the quilt world would be termed as Appliqué.

The Background paper was painted with Acrylics using a brayer,
stamping numerous images and text then dry embossing to create texture .


As usual I have added a cornucopia of media to make up the main element of the card along with the image.


It feels good to have completed a card, normality is returning to this household now that all the relatives are safely back in the UK.
