Yesterday I was working on my video for Sunday but I ran out of time to actually record it so that’s the my top priority for this morning………………after I’ve posted my blog!
Today’s card was going to be a sympathy card but ended as a thinking of you card because I made a booboo!
I started the card with a base of Crumb Cake Cardstock, then a layer of Night of Navy and a top layer of Crumb Cake.
I inked the big swirly stamp from the Falling Flowers Stamp Set using Versamark.
I covered it with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set it.
I used my white gel pen to colour the buds and the leaves.
Then I did a trail of white dots around the outside end of each “scroll”.
I saw this technique demonstrated by France Martin – aka Frenchie – a few years ago. I think she used red acrylic paint on black cardstock but I can’t think what she called it!
Then I tried to do the same with the With Sympathy stamp from the Rose Wonder Set.
Ooops! Booboo number one!
I missed a large part of the word sympathy!
It looked exactly what it was……a booboo!
I decided to lay three strips of Crumb Cake Ribbon, one overlapping the next and hoped it would look like that was part of my original plan!
I don’t think it worked – do you?
I tied a separate bow and adhered it halfway along the ribbon, in the centre.
The final touch was to add three large Pearls in a vertical line in the top left hand corner……….in an attempt to cover up booboo number two – a Night of Navy smudge!
That’s about it for today and I hope you have a great weekend.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
