Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post featuring the watercoloring technique! A video is most definitely in the works today 🙂
For today’s card, I used some stamps I received in some little goodie bags from the Hero Arts booth at CHA Chicago 2011! I just love that adorable tree and that oh-so-me sentiment! This card is a little techniquey for me, but I “kissed” the solid tree stamp with the envelope pattern background stamp (LOVE that stamp). For my custom background “frame”, I stamped the sentiment in various colors of inks and then inked up one of my acrylic block with a purple ink, misted it with a water/shimmerz mixture, and then stamped it off directly on top of the sentiment. I love the results!
I saw these colors all over the CHA floor for winter and Christmas. Purple and plum are HOT!
In other news, I started Ali Edwards’s, A Week in the Life. Because it’s Monday, I felt a getting out of bed shot was necessary 😉 My nausea has been bad ever since I got back from Chicago, but my guess is that it’s just jet lag. Cross your fingers it’ll pass soon!
Here are some shots from today. I’ll be using my hipstamatic app on my iPhone 4 for all the pictures as it’s the most handy!
Getting out of bed is tough...
