How's it going this afternoon? I couldn't get my act together this morning and get down to the ol' craft cave, but I finally got something made to share today. Before we get to that, though, let's talk about how inspiration can strike at the weirdest times. So hubs and I were at Disneyland last week with friends, and on the last day I had to go to the bathroom (the one closest to the Haunted Mansion, they're all done in different colors and styles). So I'm in there paying my water bill when I look at the floor tiles and think HEY, that's a fun color combination! It was Lost Lagoon, Perfect Plum, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla (I did not take a picture while I was in there because that would have been weird). And today I made a card with those colors, except I used Shimmery White instead of vanilla.
The whole background panel and the main image panel are Shimmery White, which sorta shows up on the top of the card. I used this week's Global Design Project theme challenge:
And since I was gone last week and missed out on doing the sketch, I used that too:
I was also thinking of this week's Retro Rubber Challenge:
I'm not 100% sure my card qualifies though because two of the stamp sets I used I've had for under a year (All Boxed Up and Timeless Textures). I've had Gorgeous Grunge for two or three years I think, and By the Tide since it debuted in 2013, so 3 years there. Does that average out to a year for all four stamp sets? Anyway, since shells originate in the ocean I thought that fit the water theme. AND, to make the background, I scribbled on my biggest acrylic block with markers, spritzed it real good with water, and then stamped the color smoosh on my paper. So that part was watery too.
Anyway, maybe I'll continue working downstairs and actually have tomorrow's card done on time...cheers, y'all! And don't forget to look at the bathroom tiles next time you're in there.
