I've been trying to play along with the current CAS Watercolour challenge, but nothing I've been making lately has been pink and green. But I have a small stash of not-yet-blogged cards, so I had a peep through those and found this card. I've used a set from Visible Image called Happy Birthday, which includes the flower and stalk.
Now for the culture. We had a little jaunt into Liverpool today because I wanted to see the Minton floor at St George's Hall. Most of the time this floor is covered to protect it, but every once in a while it's uncovered and you can pay a nominal amount to view it in all its glory. Today was the last day of viewing before it gets covered up for a few more years.
Reputed to be amongst the world's finest encaustic mosaic tiled floors, the last time it was uncovered was in 2015 for filming the latest Harry Potter movie, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
Normally there's a wooden floor laid to the level of the side steps to protect the tiles. The outer walkway is accessible, but a lot of the colour has worn from those tiles.
The mythical Liver Birds are depicted in the design.
Ornate side doors. Anybody else see a smiley face?
And now for the spotlight. I'm over on the STAMPlorations blog tonight with a spotlight on the evolution of a card. Here's a sneak peek.
