Hello. Whew, it feels good to get in the studio and do a bit of stamping. I have been sitting out a bit and nursing a sore left shoulder/arm. I am not 100% yet, but I was itching to get into the studio and get inky.
Today's card is for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge today.
The challenge is to use:
Glitter, green, brads and ribbon.
I have to admit, this card was a comedy of errors while it was coming together. I decided to do a clean and simple card because I didn't want to overwork the arm. Maybe that was the first mistake. LOL Anyone who knows me, knows that clean and simple cards usually take me as long as layered up foofy cards do.
I picked out the Mediera stamp from Amuse as it had been sitting on the shelf forever and it needed a little love. I stamped the image across the front of a white panel with aqua and moss inks and was pretty happy. Oops.....I had intended to emboss one of the images with some crystal embossing powder so to fix that boo boo, I stamped the image again and embossed it with the crystal powder (hard to see, but it is there) on a small panel, layered it up and placed it over one of the moss images. I then proceeded to layer to an aqua panel and then the green card using foam tape between the aqua and green. I stamped the sentiment on the front and I am thinking it looks pretty good at this point.....but.....I forgot to add the brads! I cut off the legs from the brads and added them to the card with some Glossy Accents. So after a bit (a long bit) I am happy with the card and set it up to take pics. Guess what? No stinkin' ribbon on the card.....good golly, I really should have gotten up from the desk and walked away at that point but where would the fun be in that? I tied a little knot of ribbon, added it to the top and called it done.
Thanks for hanging in there to read all about my saga. I love you all!
