wow where did my day go??? when we were running errands pezzy found some gigantious pink glitter sunglasses she HAD to have. so she walked around Kohls with them on asking folks if she looked gorgeous ACK! kid is a trip!
i have been in a fantastic mood! i am working with several new products right now and they just rock! hoping for some extended play time for mothers day hee heee! ok it’s late and i am way behind so onward!
the current Think Ink challenge is to take an old card and re-do it.Stamp Something – Sketch Paper Play – Pretty Pastels Frosted Designs – Aqua, Brown & Lime Green Pile It On – Boyish colors
i had a REALLY hard time with this. i am not one of those peeps who looks back at her original work and cringes – i LIKE it all. it was very different for sure but i like it! but i settled on one:
i made this long before i started stamping. i think it’s cute but i decided to do some stamping instead of the die cut:
i used this AMAZING set of stamps from artful INKables called Steampunk Sara. I used the accent images to make the background piece. First i used the Antiqued Glimmers technique from the Technique Junkies dec. 2009 issue. then i stamped randomly with some of the stamps from the set. i cut edges with one of the new tim holtz alterations dies and then distressed with my edge distresser. the key is from the grungeboard minis. i inked it with antique linen then lightly added a bit of copper cretive inspirations paint and inked the edges with walnut stain.
i am quite excited with myself over Sara herself – i watercolored her with distress inks! i know for alot of people this would be no big deal and she doesn’t look nearly as good as some of the gals over in europe BUT it is definitely better than any i have tried so far AND the first one i felt ok with sharing! the flowers are primas and the centers are the new Kiwi Viva Decor Pearl Pen. and now i am off to bed – i have an early day as usual!
