Found a Little Time to Craft
I worked at the store last Saturday. We had several customers and it was a crop weekend. It was also World Card-Making Day. To celebrate we made cards for Operation Write Home for our heroes to have cards to send to family. I managed to make 10 cards that day. I was thrilled!
Using water color paper and Tim Holtz Distress Inks "Wild Honey" & Salty Ocean I applied ink from the pad directly to my nonstick craft mat, spritzed with water and painted the background. I randomly applied the color mixing it in places producing the "green hue" you see.
I really like the little girl image. It is a stamp from Unity Stamp Co. designed by Phyllis Harris. I stamped the image on paper designed for Copic Markers and colored the image with the markers. I then cut it out and glued to the paper. I took a pencil and began to draw my letters then went back and colored in using Faber Castell markers, big brush markers and twinkling H2O's. I was actually rather pleased with my result! This is what I plan to put inside the Art Journal I made at the Jen Star class I took at Cat's Creations.
I am entering these projects in Cat's Creations WOW Wednesday. Leave me a comment for a chance to win a prize. A random commenter will be chosen and you just might be it! Check out the other entries! You will be inspired I promise!
Until next time...happy trails!
