In my last post, I commented about having a creative streak on Friday. Well, my son's girlfriend saw the card I made for another friend, and I decided to make this one for her father. Again, I love the details. I hope that you do as well.
Earlier this week I cleaned my craft space. It was a long time coming, and my dust bunnies were all fashionable because they were wearing glitter. Summer vacation is my time to recharge, clean, and spend time crafting/reading craft blogs. There are several blogs that I visit on a regular basis (check my blog list on the right), and I've luxuriated in reading and playing in my space.
Yesterday after I had lunch with some friends, I came home and just played. I pulled papers and dies and paints and Perfect Pearls and all sorts of goodies from my stash. This is what I came up with:
I'm loving all of the layers I added. Papers from Teresa Collins' 6x6 Designer Pad He Said She Said, pearls, die cuts, cheesecloth, paper doilies tinted with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.
An image from a set of ephemera that I received for my birthday.
Tiny flowers cut from my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die with pearls added to the centers ... they make me swoon!
A large tag with more swoon-inducing pearls. Add to it a Cheery Lynn Designs B117 Fanciful Flourish Right die that I cut and tucked into various locations on the card.
And a little sentiment tag cut with my Tim Holtz Tag & Tie die as well as a little resin flower gussied up with some Alcohol Inks.
I am taking (actually retaking) Creative Chemistry 101 and 102. This week's challenge is to work with stains to create backgrounds. I love how this turned out!
I also am adding two files to a Facebook group that shares Cricut Explore files. The first file is the background of circles. I saw a die on a website and figured it would be easy to recreate ... and it was! The second file I am sharing is the hello cut. There are also several other words in the file as well.
