PTI's Heart to Heart #2 & 10, Take 3 Die- The strip and butterflies are backgrounds that I created when visiting my friend, Colleen, using Liquid Pears & scrunched up saran wrap. Makes such pretty backgrounds. Then sponged on the color.
So enablers like Darnell and Marcia made Colleen and I have to buy more goodies. And they both linked back to Loll. We had to get on Amazon and order some Inka Gold. Darnell used Liquid Pearls(for a faux Mother of Pearl BG) and Marcia used Inka Gold to make the most beautiful backgrounds. These are some of the backgrounds I created trying out these techniques. These are all using the Inka Gold technique but have posted some cards using the Liquid Pearls.
Click on the link to watch both of these techniques and others too.
Well, my stamping days with my friend are about coming to an end. I am leaving today about 1:30 and dropping Colleen off so she can watch the rest of the VB tournament that Lily is in and I can get back to my duties at home. Darn....
A new technique that Colleen and I discovered this morning from Loll through Darnell's blog. The butterflies and the stripe are all from this technique.
Using Perfect Pearls and then sponging over it. I linked it to Loll's video in a previous post. So we went to town making several different backgrounds. Love this technique and the beautiful backgrounds that they create.
PTI's Beautiful Butterflies. Sponged with Distress Inks.
Another Easter card with a new technique that Col and I discovered from Loll through Darnell.
It is using Liquid Pearls to create these beautiful Faux Mother of Pearl backgrounds. We have making several in different colors. The side panel, the grass and the eggs are made from these packgrounds. Love it. We didn't have any Liquid Pearls (what??) so we used Viva Pearl Pen and Airondack Metallics Acrylic Paint Pearl Dabber and they worked just fine.
Yesterday Colleen and I got to meet one of our Blogging friends, Greta, (GG Creations)
She is as sweet as she can be. She lives in Oregon about an hour away from Colleen, so we met her in Woodburn, Oregon and had lunch with her at Red Robin. We visited with her for about 2 hours and never had a silent moment like we had know her forever.
Nina's challenge this week is to use buttons on your card. Another challenge I struggled with on what to do, then I found this sweet little MFT Pure Innocence Warm Wishes stamp set and saw the buttons on her coat and decided to go with this. I then added some of PTI's Button Stacks.
Happy Birthday to my dearest friend of 58 years. Wow how is that possible? It seems we were just rollerskating and playing princesses. And then getting married, having children and now our children have children. We have been so blessed to have this friendship for all of these years. I'm so excited I am going down on Sunday for my weekly, March visit. Dear Friend, I will always cherish our friendship. Love you.
