Hello again! I have a super quick post tonight – already 9:30pm and I’m pretty exhausted! I made a quick card for the Avery Elle Guest Designer Search. I mixed a few of my favorite floral Avery Elle sets for this quick one layer card (promise I’ll do something with more than 1 layer soon!).
Hey friends. Hope you had a great weekend. It was starting to look like spring here in Zurich and we got dumped with rain & snow just in time to enjoy the weekend. Now looking out my window onto a snow storm instead of sunshine – I think the snow is a little more unbearable once you’ve already had a taste of spring!
So, in the hopes of spring weather returning soon, I have another sherbet-colored faux watercolor card today. Same idea as this card here, just used watercolor paper for the image, which I preferred to regular cardstock.
A side note on this card – I was totally stumped for inspiration in terms of the actual layout – I often use the same sketches/designs over & over. I happened to look up from my craft desk & noticed my calendar – I used the design for March as my inspiration – everything from the layout of the flowers to the font. Amazing how these little things go un-noticed, when in actuality they can be such a big help when you’re stuck.
That is all for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow sharing some cards from the February Simon Says Stamp kit – and a little challenge I set for myself!
Happy weekend to all of you. I’m happy its the weekend, but as luck would have it the gorgeous weather has turned dreary & wet – not sure why that always happens in time for the weekend.
Anyway, onto today’s card. This is another one for the latest Online Card Class – 1 layer cards. To see my first Copic one layer card, go here. I watched Dawn Woleslagle’s video with amazement as she did faux watercoloring with Hero Arts ink & the Copic colorless blender – her results were stunning. Mine, not so much! But, I’m still sharing them here. It was an interesting process & I think the stamp I chose wasn’t great for the technique. Curious to try some larger stamps for this again soon.
Ok, it is already 9:30pm & I’m just now eating dinner and about to catch up on some Dowtown Abbey, so needless to say, I’m exhausted! I’m on my own this weekend with my little guy – weeknights are fine, weekends kinda suck. Ah well, did manage to squeeze in a VERY short crafty session during nap time today.
I’m participating in the Stenciled class & I only managed to watch Julie’s video as I had about 5 minutes to spare, but excited to catch up on the rest – all the projects look amazing! Anyway, this came together in a snap, which was a good thing as I needed it for a birthday party this afternoon
Alright, thats all for me – time to sit on the couch with my big bowl of zuchinni noodles & Downtown Abbey.
