On a Roll!
I do a lot of my crafting at night after supper is over and dishes are done. Once I am through in the kitchen I walk down the end of the hall to my little crafting haven. Even though my room isn't finished and isn't organized it is functional and I enjoy just being in it! I've even made a little space for my granddaughters to craft. I love my room!
Although a small amount, I managed to get a small box of cards sent to Operation Write Home before the February 7th deadline. It was a mixture of general and Easter. This is a sampling of the Easter cards.
Our Daily Bread Designs February Challenge. The challenge for February is fruit. I got this stamp set from Unity and was itching to use it. You may remember that watermelon is my most favorite fruit! Using Tim Holtz Distress "peeled paint" I inked the card base. I stamp the background with black archival ink and used distress ink "festive berries". I stamped the watermelon image one more time on a piece of water color paper using distress "peeled paint" then colored the watermelon using a blender pen and distress "festive berries". I cut it out and put foam tape behind it for dimension. The sentiment I stamped with archival black ink and matted with paper inked with distress "peeled paint". The twine is from My Mind's Eye.
Cards in Envy. The design idea is for the challenge at Digi Haven. Their challenge theme is Love or Valentines.
Here is the sketch.
This card I made for Christmas Cards All Year 'Round.
