It’s been fun trying to find new techniques while becoming Jennifer McGuire. The latest has been using Distress Inks and making a “starry sky.” While I appreciate the fact that a starry sky looks best at night, it was more fun for me to make it a day time sunlit sky with an ocean theme. I know this isn’t really the best time of year to produce a card of this nature, but I liked the idea of a theme that doesn’t involve snow or a snowy night. I made a card that was fun and frisky and gave me a laugh while making it. You can’t ask for more than that. I’ll give you a small taste of the card. Picture a gaggle (I’m not sure what you call a group of three flamingos) of flamingos wearing flip flops. Need I say more?
The other technique I’m working with is using Distress inks on a big background stamp and then dousing it with pearlized water. So far the card hasn’t dried, but I’m really excited about the look of it at this point. I’m not sure exactly where to go with it once it’s dry, but I’m hoping an idea comes to me so I can finish this card with style.
And lastly, I decided I needed to do another haul video as I have so many things I’ve bought and haven’t shown on video. Those darn end of year sales really sucked me in and I wanted to show how some of the things I bought were specifically tailored to my Jennifer McGuire transformation. I hope people will appreciate the lengths to which I am willing to go to become “Jennifer.” Actually, I just really liked the stamp set she showed in one of her videos and had to track it down. It sounded good though, didn’t it?
