Hi there, and happy Monday!
I love Mondays because I usually have the day off from work. I have done nothing but play with inks and stamps today, and have loved every minute of it!
But there is a flip side . . .
I also feel guilty because nothing, and I mean nothing else, got done! (At least not yet.) I've got about two hours now to get my butt in gear, clean up the house a bit, do some laundry and make it at least look like I did SOMETHING today, before my hubby walks in the door! Shhhh, don't tell him! :)
Anyway, I'll share a couple of cards I made with you. This first one uses the Hero Arts Newspaper Tulips. I stamped them with silver ink and clear embossed. Then stamped again, using second generation stamping, to achieve a shadow effect. I do love silver and purple together!
I was inspired to create this next card after reading Marcy's discussion thread, over in the Hero Arts Flickr pool. It discusses "off the edge" cards, which are so fun to make!
I used Shari Carroll's fun coloring technique, and finger painted Broken China and Vintage photo inks, onto the white embossed, Newspaper Flower, also from Hero Arts.
Here's another angle of the card so you can see what it looks like when opened.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful, crafty week! :)
