Frosted Designs #34 'Joking You'

Hello lovely bloggers,

today's sketch is from the lovely Jenny. I can not tell you how much she inspires me with her beautiful work and amazing ideas :0) This sketch blew me away and I absolutely loved working on this layout!!

Here is the sketch:

Lots of playing and trying out techniques on this one: misting, splatting ink, heat and water embossing, stamping with paint....hmmm, I think that's it!

So, without further ado here it is:

Misted with Cosmic Shimmer Sprays, heat embossed with Versamark and Cosmic Shimmer True White using a  Tattered Angels script stamp and also blobbed a Versamark pen in various places, stamped with Jenny Bowlin acrylic paints using Anna Griffin border stamps, splatted Espresso Ink by loading up a paint brush and tapping it. The letters are American Crafts Thickers and the border sticker is October Afternoon 5 & Dime.
The reason for my title is, of course, my DGD. She is a real comedian, always trying to make everyone laugh. If she says something that brings forth a chuckle she will say 'I'm joking you!' This photo was taken the morning after my DH's birthday - we had a dinner the night before and some of the guests stayed. Even though it was October we had a mini heatwave, so everyone enjoyed a breakfast of pancakes in the garden, including these two little darlings :0)
These little banners have been made by soaking 8 layers of toilet roll and then running it through the Cuttlebug  with the  Swiss Dots Embossing folder. I am thrilled with how they came out :0)

Oooh I could just eat her! The little flag is a stick courtesy of Starbucks and some 5 & Dime wrapped round it.
