I hope all is good with you .. .. and if not that things improve VERY QUICKLY!!
As some of you will know Wednesday is the day I try to post something that uses up some of that white card mountain I possess .. and am not proud of.
So today's card started off as a pile of white card and with the help of the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge the pile turned into this:
Images: Mama Elephant: Bountiful Blessings
Sentiment: Penny Black: Sprinkles and Smiles
Distress Re-Inkers: Fossilized Amber and Shabby Shutters
Distress Spray Stain: Picked Raspberry
Distress Ink Pads: Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Picked Raspberry
Creative Expressions Dies by Sue Wilson: Wellington
Spellbinder Nestabilties: Classic Square
Ribbon from my Crafty Stash Box
Now if you haven't been over to the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge Blog you might be wondering why on earth I have "shaving foam" as one of my card ingredients. Well this month the challenge is to feature "marbling" on your project .. .. some stamping (a little or a lot) .. .. and then something of your own choice from the list provided. I went for "die cutting" this time.
I had never tried the marbling technique before .. .. so at the weekend I had a try and was very pleased with the results .. .. other than wondering how to get rid of the tray of shaving foam I was left with LOL!!
If you haven't tried it either and fancy a go, then pop over to the challenge blog as there are lots of links to different methods you can use.
I don't actually own many re-inkers so to bring some pink into the mix I sprayed the foam with Distress Spray and that mixed in well too, but I suppose rather than spraying I could have just dripped some onto the foam.
So that is me for today.
Mum had a lovely birthday yesterday .. .. thank you to those who sent her good wishes .. .. we had a lovely time together.
Catch you tomorrow with the new Thursday theme.
Love Jules xx
