I have been in my craft room all day and this is only the second card I have made. Trying some different watercolor techniques and things were just not turning out. This one did work. I was having more trouble with the first card. In fact, I am happy with this.
PTI's Pretty Peonies embossed in white and then using distress inks to drop into the flowers and leaves. Fun and easy technique. Just have to drop water in the areas first and then drop the colors onto the images and they just blend themselves.
Then used a piece of vellum for the sentiment (Keep It Simple Thinking of You) embossed in Liquid Platinum.
I was supposed to see Keith Urban tomorrow night but the concert has been cancelled due to the death of Nicole's father. Very sad and unexpected.
Ok, the last NBUS challenge I used a new stamp set but said I didn't have any old stamp sets that hadn't been used. I forgot (on purpose?) that I have this set. I belong to Stamps of Life Club where they send you a new stamp set each month. Well, this is one that I am not too fond of so have not used. Still not that thrilled with it. I used Copics to color and had to fussy cut because I tried to add a little shelf at the bottom like all the designers do, but it turned out crappy, so had to cut out. Added some sequins from Impress and called it good.
Yesterday, I was trying to make a card for MIM - embossed resist using dies and this is one of the backgrounds that I came up with. Well, my mojo was not working and I couldn't think what to do with it. Today, my mojo is working better and I was able to complete this card and the second one.
