I blame Rysa Walker. Here I was all set to spend lots of time in the craft cave yesterday but while I was eating breakfast I started reading The Delphi Effect and next thing I know the hubs is getting home from work (oops). I stopped reading long enough to make dinner and do some stitching, but let's just say I finished the book last night. #WorthIt
And today I finally made something! Now if I could just finish the scrapbook layout that's been 75% done since the weekend....anyway. New card.
I had to do the sentiment twice; the first time I had too much ink on the stamp and the insides of the teeny letters on the bottom line were all filled in, so I used a sponge to ink up the stamp this time and that's like my new favorite technique. Anyway, I started with a fun color combo from Cupcake Inspirations:
I used Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant for SU! versions of the colors, plus added in some crumb cake because I thought my card needed it. I used this week's CASE the Designer challenge at Global Design Project as a jumping-off point:
I used the same layout (my "main" bamboo stalk is even tilted to the left like the bear) but my layers are a bit different sizes. The length of my sentiment stamp dictated that the main image panel had to be wider than in Brian's card but I still think mine is balanced fairly well. Bonus: it's got Dimensionals, but other than that it's flat and easy to mail :)
So that's it for me today. I now have three choices: a.) eat lunch, b.) go to the gym, or c.) finish that scrapbook layout. Decisions, decisions....
