Hello! So glad you could stop by for a visit today.
The weather has turned cooler here in Tennessee. Monday it was close to 78 for the high and now we have a freeze warning!! Are they kidding me?! I was just getting used to the warm weather.
So, I had a little time to play this morning. I've been trying to get out of bed when I first open my eyes. Instead of just laying there for over an hour trying to go back to sleep. I was noticing that around 2:30pm I was getting tired, droopy eyes and all I wanted to do was take a nap. So, Monday I started getting up shortly after waking. And it's helping.
I started working with Thank You from Tiddly Inks yesterday morning. I just love this image! Those ponytails are superb! Thank You is in Tiddly's bargain basement for $2!
I colored Thank You with my Copic markers. Then I paper pieced her kimono and obi. The papers are from the Basic Grey Oxford 6X6 paper pad. I absolutely *love* this pad. The ribbon, flowers, and brads are from my stash.
The sentiment is computer generated and then cut out with my Whimsy Stamps ticket die with coordinating stamp. Then I distressed it. It's offset a little and I'm not exactly sure why.
Can you see my Oops!?! I had sponged the edges of the image after I cut it out with my square Nestie and didn't realize I had green ink on my hands! Great! I normally would have scrapped the project, but decided to post it anyway, because the papers are just to die for!!
On the inside I followed the outside layout and just put a big rectangle for writing. I then came back to it and used a new stamp I found in the $1 bin at Michael's.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges (even though I shouldn't, because of the Oops!):
Tiddly Inks: photo inspiration w/ a twist on 2 (the umbrella reminded me of an oriental lantern and the green was just speaking to me)
Creative Craft Challenges: sketch
Phiindy's Place: anything goes
