52 Christmas Cards- Bells
I am going to try to showcase cards I create once a week (we shall see in April when I am neck deep into A To Z land). I felt angelic...felt, that is, because to quote an old movie.."I'm no Angel" (That ship sailed long ago:). Now the top card was inspired by a song (duh) which I then decided to write the actual song title in gold stickers. I coloured the angels (something new and free) in tombow markers and adhered them to the kraft colour (kraft is a special name for blah burlap beige) that I stamped and embossed in musical notes. To have a little fun I tore the paper (old and laying around like my dog) all around and then I set the edges on fire for some fun. Yes! That's right...I played with fire and enjoyed the moment. I took my sizzex machine and embossed the dark red cardstock and adhered all of it to the green paper. I added the gold stickers which I love and use often and..Voila! The card is done.
The second card was using my Bells stamp which I embossed in gold and coloured it using pearl powders. I added gold sparkle to the ribbon. I then punched Kim Kardashian's ass and watched it deflate..Ooops that was a dream,... I punched out the leaves from various left over green cardstock and created a frame around the bells. I finished it off with stickers, stickles and red crystals.
I am not happy with either card. The first one I wish something more unique could be done and the second card..one can't see the ribbon too well and the picture doesn't quite capture it. Frustration is setting in as I wish I was a true artist like my mom or my hubby, but I should be happy with an Ok card. I really want to release my frustration and blow something up like some video game I used to play back in the 80's.
On a last note, don't you wish you had a big pin and could go around all those twits who have huge asses and stick a pin in their butt and watch it deflate like some balloon? Just saying...
