Oh my goodness, I haven't felt this tired in a long time... yuck! Aaron's asthma has reared it's ugly head, so it was a long night. I'm not sure what I'll get a chance to stamp today - if anything at all - so I'm thankful I finished this card yesterday!
Did you ever work on a project that felt like a creativity roller coaster? When I saw this sketch challenge, I instantly had some ideas I wanted to play with. The sketch isn't complicated, and I have plenty of stamping goodies to play with. I was feeling good as I started the project, but then, well, I don't know... it just wasn't working out. So I did the best thing you can do - walk away. I left it on my desk and tended to some household chores (you know, the stuff I should be doing but choose to stamp instead). I am happy to report that when I came back to my project, I tried a few different things with success!
(closed) and has a top-fold. I am so in love with the Twitterpated DSP... I will be sad when it's gone. The three flower images from the Bordering on Romance stamp set are stamped in Basic Gray ink. I used a Blender Pen to watercolor the images. I punched out three 1-1/4" circles from Basic Gray textured card stock, and distressed the edges with my fingernail. Layering them behind the flowers really helps the pretty flowers stand out.
Speaking of birthdays... did you know today is Dr. Seuss's birthday? I'm sure if you have school-aged children, they will have a blast at school today. I know mine will!! Thanks for dropping by... time for me to finish off the coffee and brew another pot :}
