I finally started creating cards again and have done a couple but just showing one here for now. I took my time taking all my Christmas stuff down plus the last 3 weeks we were travelling. No not being an a-hole and flipping my nose at Covid but going for rocks. Yes, rocks because my hubby finds free stuff on Kijiji and needs rocks for his pond. He's crazy because his fingers have swelled up and he did a number on his back when turning into the driveways with our little trailer (he has rheumatoid arthritis). We wear our masks and he toiled while I stayed in the car because I'm as useless as a boar's tits in doing any lifting ( one of my daddy's old sayings). We were able to social distance and get plenty of field stone and potato rocks for the pond. Last weekend I went for my jolt juice in Toronto so I feel better. The pain is there, but I can do more before I have to sit down so I'm very happy. Ok, here's my card...
Alcohol inks, sponge thingy, gelatos, water, rose stamp, champagne embossing pad, pearl gold embossing powder, pearl stickles in mint, yellow, lavender, die cut saying.
Color Throwdown-ctd628- soft colors in pink, yellow, lavender, mint
Addicted to Stamps- Birthday
Cute Card Thursday- Anything Goes
It was tough to get my mind back into the swing of things. I started by having fun with my alcohol inks. I took pink, purple, green and pearl and squeezed some colour onto a soft pad. I took the pad and just kept popping the color down on the white paper until it was covered. I used the alcohol blending solution to do just that and was pleased with the results. I stamped and heat embossed the Roses. I coloured them in with the pastel gelato(yellow and lavender..hard to see) and fussy cut it out. I took the pearl stickles and just squeezed out some colours on a piece of paper and used a piece of plastic to spread the colour. Once it was dry, I used my sizzex to cut out the happy birthday diecut and glued it in place. I used pop up dots to place the flower on top, added the border stickers and placed this on some vellum design paper to cover the yellow paper I used that was too strong a colour for this card...the vellum softens the tone.
Have a great day everyone
