I wanted to make a card for a friend who likes the color blue.  I started by using four different blue Distress inks and rubbed them across a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I wet it and blurred the lines so you couldn’t tell where one ink stopped and another started.  I dried it with my heat gun then stamped a floral pattern all over it with black ink, then embossed it and heat set that.  The floral stamps were layered, so I used the outline stamp first and colored that with alcohol markers.  Then for the next layers, I used Distress Oxides.  And in the end, I painted everything with Wink of Stella.  I’m not sure if people will like it or not, but Rich gave it a 10 out of 10, and he’s a pretty tough critic.  I always know when a project isn’t good enough to go on YouTube, because I’ll show it to him and he won’t say anything.  That’s never a good sign.

I don’t know what I’m going to call that video, as I used so many techniques and showed so many different products, it’s like a garbage can full of ideas and products.  Do you think people would watch a video if I called it “This Card is a Garbage Can of Ideas and Products?”  I think I’d get a few people wondering what the heck I was talking about, but probably not my regular viewers, they’d know it’s another off-beat Sandy moment.  That’s why I love my viewers so much…They get me.
