I really wanted to get a card or two done today. I thought I’d do something simple, like gold embossed roses and color them with alcohol markers. I’m a little brain-dead sometimes, because I keep forgetting that I can’t use alcohol markers on craft card stock. They just don’t work. The colors fade and it just looks bad. So I spent over an hour working on a card that went nowhere. That’s not all. Before I tried that, I tried using kid’s chalk on craft card stock and Versamark ink with the same rose stamps. Talk about a big fail. I was rubbing so hard, I made the paper ball up. Ok, card number two in the trash.
I had made a card using watercolor pencils and a Carolyn Shores Wright stamp that’s my favorite stamp ever. It’s four blue birds and they are really sweet and I love coloring it.
I’ve made this card for a few friends in the past, but never made a video using the stamp. I decided ok, forget the roses, make a card with my bird stamp. So I watercolored it and had a terrific time finally making a card that I wasn’t embarrassed to make a video of.
And lastly, I’m finally putting the pop and twist card online. It’s been done for over a week, and I wondered if Rich was ever going to edit it, and today was the day. See, I only procrastinate some of the time, not all of the time.
Plus I went to some garage sales and found very few items of interest. The chocolate chip cookies I bought at a church bazaar were my big purchase. You’ve got to love a good bake sale, well, at least I do.
