Eventhough this card is totally not my style, I actually like it. I'm not a big purple fan at all. I was going through my scraps to work on a card and grabbed that. I figure why not step out of the box for a change.
The stamps here are from Rubber Cafe. I really like these stamps alot. The stamping quality is great and they are so cute. I think I will need to get a few more. I did some layering and added some glitter along with the distressing.
I had some of the yummy Scrap Cake paper left and thought I would make a card. I wanted to try to distress the papers since they are not something that I would normally distress. The outcome is great! I love
the way it came out.
I left the card blank so I can add a proper sentiment when the time comes. There a space on the front that should fit a phrase nicely. I added a little glitter to the butterflies to go along with the glitter on the flower :)
Looking for a little spark to get you going this week? How about this beautiful sketch from Alda at The Flying Unicorn Every Monday she post a new sketch to work with. This one is now sitting on my desk to play with. Maybe it will inspire you?
Well, I do. My challenge to myself recently has been to find 15 minutes in every day to stop and create. It doesn't actually have to be something I finish but I do need to make the time to head into my room and get in the zone. Maybe it's just to sit and ponder over things to get some inspiration or maybe it's to pull out a few items I want to use for the next day. How about a little doodling? or zentangle? What about getting a journal book out and just adding gesso to a few pages. Maybe you can try it too?
Here's a journal page that I actually did in three days along with starting another one as well as a wooden plaque. That's just 45 minutes out of the 3 days and I got all that accomplished! Not too bad :)
For this page I started with a gesso page and added Pan Pastels to the background. Stamping was next and then some modeling paste with a stencil. After that dried I added more Pan pastels over the modeling paste. The flower was made out of book paper and pleated around a carboard circle piece.
I'll be back soon to show you some more finished items from my 15 minutes of craftiness :)
They are donating a $30 gift certificate to use in their store :)
Here's my example for this week. Lots of circles here. I used a white cardstock, paint, buble wrap, punched circles and some letters. I really wanted to scrap my first "complete" zentangle drawing and this was a perfect way to capture it.
It's live! This months Kit of the Month from Flying Unicorn is called "Whispering Memories". You may want to hurry up and stop by to get yours before they are all taken. They will be going super fast! Check out all the yummies in here!
