I thought I would have a lot of time to stamp coming August, but I have not stamped much at all. I have finally come up with a couple of excuses:
1) - I have been feeling very depressed
2) - I have to deal with cronic fatigue syndrome
3) - My craft room is downstairs in the PIT and since I don't want to be down there when my kids are playing outside. Just can't do it.
So, today I did something about my last excuse. I put my stamping tools in a basket and went outside on the table on the deck and stamped while the kids were playing outside.
I used the sketch callenge 138 on SCS. I really liked it. I used mostly SU supplies minus the watercolor paper.
Paper: Card - Ruby Red, Layers - Marigold Morming and Choc. Chip. Layer under image is ruby red.
The Tiled layer is POLISHED STONE. I used reinker colors: creamy caramel, marigold morning and gold. To do this you take a cotton swab add some alcohol and a few drops of the reinkers. Dab this on glossy cardstock. When it has dried, spray with matte acrylic sealer.
The image is from the set GIVE THANKS. Stamped with Stasz-on Black and colored with watercolor pencils and blender pen.
On the one card I sponged the edges of all the layers making it DIRTY
The other card I distressed all the layers: DISTRESSED
I'm not sure which I like better. My dd Vanessa likes the dirty one.
THANKS FOR DROPPING BY. Hope you are having a beautiful day.
