The dotty background is a Spring Burst acetate overlay by Papermania and the scallopy (is that a word?) bit on the right hand side is a bit of raw chipboard that I've coated in Colorbox Pigment ink - I've got loads of these and don't use them that often as I seem to get drawn towards their chalk inks for distressing and I don't do a lot of embossing, but I needed a bright colour so grabbed my Petal Point inkpad...
and swiped it over... I'd forgotton how fab they are and it covered in just the one coat - even better because the chipboard is quite absorbant it dried pretty quick too, which is just as well as I'm VERY impatient! I think I feel a little order coming on - the metallic shades would be fab!
We were so lucky to get another fabulous weekend and I of course was out and about in the Forest.
Martha (and Lola of course!) got nice and wet and muddy...
The goslings and ducklings were out in force again - a few tourists chucking bread in the water always draws them nearer and makes getting a nice shot easier!
There are also a LOT of VERY pregnant donkeys around too... so it won't be long till the foals start appearing. A bit of hot weather is a strain too, so plenty were having a kip in the sun!
And I'm pretty sure this guy is a Mule with a little Shetland tapping along!
And talking of Shetlands, one of THE cutest sights at this time of year are the Shetland Foals! They are simply adorable!
