I have a hefty pile of very ugly, tacky cards behind me and I am finally back in action. Man, after not stamping regularly for a long time, it was hard to get back into it. Even choosing colors together was hard! Almost like starting back at square 1!
So here is a card I think I like....the picture is bad as my sunlight lamp fell and the bulb is toast! So this is beside my window and not a great pic.
Paper: groovy guava, chocolate chip. whisper white, afternoon tea designer paper
Ink: close to cocoa, groovy guava, chocolate chip, chocolate chip marker
Accessories: wild wasabi double stitched ribbon, misc. buttons, dollar store rhinestone brad
First I stamped the bird with guava and then colored in the design with chocolate marker. I added the brad for the eye next and then did some faux stitching and sponging on the corners. Then I matted on chocolate and afternoon tea. The ribbon was added and then I matted on chocolate. The buttons were added and then matted on guava card base. I sponged the edges with guava ink and then added the sentiment with chocolate ink. Last, I stamped the doodleydad stamps along the botton with guava.
I just had to share a few pics here also. The first is my son in the mud yesterday. It got quiet in the backyard and I looked out in the alley and there was my boy sitting in the flooded tire tracks in the alley. We had had a storm that morning so it was mucky as all get out! He was practically swimming in it by the end. Even washed his hair in it. I couldn't even give him trouble because he was too cute!
Lastly, we were under a tornado warning for 3 hours last night...two tornadoes touched down just by us and we heard on the radio that there was a funnel cloud just outside our town! This is Canada, like what is going on?? So we were all in the basement, not able to go to sleep. The scariest part was it was night time so how can you see one coming? The water was up to our basement windows so the water came pouring in...ugh. We had to go outside between the first and second storm and do an assembly line with buckets to get the water away! Here is a really cool pic I took just before the tornado warning...weird.
I feel like I have played a bit of catch up now! Have a great day and see you back here tomorrow. :)
