I am off this week and, even though I work from home right now, it is nice to be off. This is the time to reflect and find other areas of creativity than just going to the mall, gym, be with friends etc.. hey, thank goodness for Skype and all those other ways to talk to people. Maybe this will make us slow down a bit and enjoy the simpler times. If we are not the morons who continue to go to Church and sit beside people or go to parks and other places where many people are, then we should be ok...as long as those morons have not infected us but we need to be careful and stay positive. Now, I am showcasing a few cards and hope you like them.
The Library Challenge-Eggdrop
I was thinking of my mom when I created this simple card since she created faberge style eggs in great detail. There used to be at show called craftscapes and she was showcased on this. Anyway, this was a simple card to make because I mainly used stickers. Once I placed the egg sticker down I used glue in between the parts and sprinkled different coloured sparkles. It is bright colours just like on the moon board from Simon Says. I took a punch to the 4 corners, adhered all the cardstock together, added glitter in the 4 corners and done
Colour Throwdown- strong Pink, Green, Orange, Yellow
Dream Valley- Spring Colours
Crafty Creations- Anything Goes
Penny Black- Anything Goes
I had fun colouring this image with cue tips using my pastel colours. I used a punch on the corners and a fancy scissor for the top and bottom. I layered the card, added the crystals and that’s that.
Sparkle Christmas- Christmas Critters
HLS:Christmas- Festive Animals
I love my new stamp that I bought about 4 months ago. I used my tombow markers and place just a bit of color on the image and, with a little water, I used my brush to colour the image. I glued the funny/sweet image down on this mulled paper and used fine sparkle on the sock but this bigger sparkle for snow. I used the sizzex and rolled the saying through it. I glued that in place and added the stickers on each side coloring in the centre with these markers.
This was fun and hope you are being creative with what I do, playing your favourite instrument, write, critique a film or organize your home, whatever you wish. Stay safe!
