Hi friends! Happy April! It's the first Monday of a new month and that means it is time for contest week over at Mojo Monday! Play along with this week's fun sketch for your chance to win one of up to 7 prizes! Check out the Mojo Monday blog for all the details!
I made a quick little card during naptime yesterday with not a lot of stamping. I love this new Uncharted Waters collection from Glitz and the paper with the Choose Happiness was just calling my name. I paired it with the Remember This set from Verve, stamping the days of the week in the background of the grey paper, then lightly covering with gesso for a chalkboard look and crimping a bit for some texture. The on this day sentiment is also from Remember This and is stamped onto the banner from the Flag It Die Set. I also added a bit of gesso and crimping, then clipped it on and added some bakers twine and a rhinestone. The doily on the edge was white and I rubbed a Primrose Petals ink pad directly over it, then spritzed with water and dabbed up some of the excess ink until it was a color that matched the twine. a little gesso, a lot of distressed edges and a white prima flower finish this grungy little card off.
That does it for me today. I've got lots to do and two very cranky little boys to do it with. :) Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely week and a fabulous start to the month!
