I was cleaning (no that's not the right word) I was moving some stuff around on my desk to take a picture for the last post and uncovered this card that I started a few weeks ago. I thought ' how hard would it be to finish and post it tonight'. Ha Ha. Well finishing it was not as hard as taking a clear picture of it. No matter how many times I tried, the camera wobbled, so apologies that it is blurry.
A while ago I gave this background die by Die-namics to Jules for her birthday and she kindly cut out one for each of the Cardologists to make a card. I am envious of the beautiful monochromatic card that Susanne made; you can see it on her blog here.
Mine was colored with a product similar to Twinkling H2Os that I purchased many years ago. It languished because I didn't know what to do with all those colors! Until I was trying to get all my cling and newly converted to cling stamps sorted by category and found this word stamp I had purchased this summer. I love the saying by The Artful Stamper but am a little disappointed that I couldn't seem to get a good imprint. Too much ink and pressure and I had grey marks all around it, yick. Too little and the words didn't all stamp. I tried more cushion and less cushion; I changed ink pads and that helped. By the eighth try I had trouble finding even one snippet of bright white paper left to use for the sentiment. I finally had the saying with only one little wobble (don't look to closely) and had to make do with a Sharpie. Now she says to herself....that is what you bought the Misti for...duh.
Since this is a NBUS stamp, I am making this my second entry to Darnell's NBUS Challenge 5. But since I also used snippets from the scrap box to punch the leaves and butterfly, I am also going over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop where Di is celebrating her birthday with Pixie's Snippets Playground - week 194. She would love it if you would play along with your snippets.
Happy Birthday Di!
