spent so much time yesterday working on the project for tomorrow’s
video, I didn’t actually get round to recording it! So I’m under a
little bit of pressure today to record the video, upload it onto
YouTube, and edit it.
I know from previous experience that it’s best for
me not to use my computer while the video is being uploaded to YouTube. Fortunately, I have an appointment with my manicurist at lunch time, so
that’ll keep me away from my computer for quite a little while!
card is another one using the Touches of Texture Stamp Set. When I
started colouring the image, I felt as if I’d coloured it before! I
checked my files – I keep a photocopy of all the cards I make – and I’ve
made at least three others using this image! I obviously like it a lot!
started my card with a base of Calypso Coral and a layer of Whisper
White. My original plan also included a top layer of the Calypso Coral
leafy design from the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack
but, as frequently happens, my card didn’t develop the way I envisaged. I adhered the layer to the card base using Tombow.
stamped the image using Basic Black Archival Ink onto a piece of
Whisper White Cardstock. Using a Blender Pen I coloured the image using
Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi Inks.
I also stamped the bee, which is
from the same stamp set, using Basic Black Archival Ink and painted the
body using my Daffodil Delight Marker Pen. I
inked up the large splatter stamp in Calypso Coral Ink and stamped it
off twice, very firmly, and stamped the third one onto the flower image.
die cut the image with the straight cut die no 7 from the Layering Oval
Thinlits Dies. I adhered it to a piece of Calypso Coral using the no 7
scallop die from the same set of Thinlits Dies. I adhered the two
together using Tombow.
I cut a 2″ strip of the Calypso Coral Stripe
Design from the A Little Foxy DSP Stack and punched it using the
Triple Banner Punch. I cut one of the retired White Doilies – they’re a
little bit bigger than the new ones – in half, overlapped them slightly
and adhered them to the Whisper White layer.
Then I adhered the DSP
Banner over the top in the centre and then the image, also positioned in
stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment, which is from the Barnyard Babies
Stamp Set, onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
I chose this
sentiment as it fits in the Classic Label Punch beautifully. It needs to
be shortened but that’s fine because it will then layer nicely onto a
piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock that has been punched full size with
this punch. I adhered the two together and then onto the bottom of the
banner using Tombow.
